I shot this shot as a JOKE! I entered it into the challenge with the title "Entering This Shot Into DPC Without A Net", figuring that people would GET the joke!

Odd, William, how people can consider almost "pornographic" nudity in some of the shots in here as "acceptable" and term it "art"...but, show someone's middle finger and all of a sudden, it's "a slippery slope" that could be sliding DPC downwards???

I'm sorry that you didn't get the idea that it wasn't a "comment" or "statement" but rather a joke! A "gutsy" one at that but, all the same...a joke! Perhaps, had you looked upon it in that manner, it wouldn't have appeared as "vulgarity" to you.

Sorry, I refuse to mark your comment as "helpful" because it wasn't aimed at being helpful to my photo. Rather it was aimed at making a statement period to others of your distaste.

Earl was very tired after a long week of tending horses so on Saturday he decided to pamper himself. While driving home, Earl stuck his hand out the window to admire his first-ever manicure! As he was looking, he noticed something odd on one of his nails. Horrors! A hangnail! While Earl was focused on getting a closer inspection, he inadvertantly drove over to the wrong side of the street, up over a curb, and plowed thru some yards and into a pool. Poor Earl never saw it coming.

heh - you be crazy lady!

Gets a 1 for being vulgar, but a 7 for the capture and for knowing it was not meant for me.

I don't find the subject that great - The mans hand looks a little awkward.

How clever - did u think about it all by yourself or did u get help?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't know. It could be funny, but it's definitely not clever. I'm tempted to vote high; unfortunately, the photo is too weak, even as a piss-take.

I would advise a more elaborate fingering of the 'man' in future.

Though, if that really is a random guy in a car giving you the finger then the funny part is a little closer.
