How'd you get the person in the toilet? :)

GREAT JOB for closing! This will always give hope to anyone scoring above a 6.5. . .you could always win a blue ribbon with a score like that, right? CONGRATULATIONS!!!

No one likes getting negative comments, but I suggest you listen to them and maybe there are going to be more ribbons in your future. Well done anyway on a clever pic.

7 for making me laugh.

Wild pic! Very interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2007 09:59:55 PM
A great effect, though the finger appears to be opening the lid rather than closing it. The light border around the thumb and cuff gives this away as being a picture of a picture. Neat idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2007 12:01:52 PM
Very Very Very Clever, I will be amazed if this does not win
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good thing this is already validated. ;-)

09/17/2007 01:26:12 AM
Great concept & execution!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/17/2007 12:54:31 AM
Were in not for the edge that shows all around the cutout, this would be a 10. I'm still going with 9, though. Very funny!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2007 04:35:18 PM
Funny - and should be posted in every bathroom! : )
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2007 04:17:00 PM

lol Great concept, great execution. My one objection would be that the arm looks oversharpened.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/14/2007 07:01:10 AM
I could be wrong, but i'm not sure this complies with the basic editing rules?
09/14/2007 04:52:52 AM
haha! very funny idea, so 10 points! but I wonder how this was possible. but great anyways.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/14/2007 04:47:43 AM
Very creative :) Why not in color?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2007 09:27:12 PM
I wonder if this is coming from a female. good idea, nice lighting 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2007 08:15:29 PM
Clever composition but the hand looks out-of-place, like it's lit differently...something bugs me about that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2007 02:04:51 PM
Very creative....10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2007 01:26:01 PM
i like the concept a lot and giving you 8
ps: i hope you setup a real card-board inside the toilet(not a mix of two exposures). otherwise it will be DQed under the basic editing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2007 09:19:29 AM
lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 09:23:14 PM
New meaning to giving someone the finger? Give them a cardboard one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 09:17:57 PM
I hope that is a cardboard cutout..lol Very strong composition. Nice range of values. Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 09:16:29 PM
Hmm, very creative. Great lighting. Don't think I want to know how you did this though :P.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 06:59:27 PM
As someone who has been oft chastised for not doing this this picture made me laugh. Will be interested to discovered how you set up this shot and just hope that you are feeling flushed with success by the end of the challenge

The patterned tiles make for a slight distraction but a good entry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 04:26:11 PM
Pity you can see this is a cutout. Nice idea though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 03:53:46 PM
Clever set up. I'm guessing that's a cardboard arm suspended in a bowl that's been drained. Close? Good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 12:16:04 PM
Nice shot. O so true!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 10:57:17 AM
That looks like "opening" rather than "closing"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 10:21:45 AM
That's pretty damn funny. Hurray for your ingenuity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2007 10:03:31 AM
