i hung my tootsies out over the pool and snapped a few shots - this is the only one where i liked the color of the toe (why it varied so much is weird)

i wanted just the big toe, and i wanted a nice ripple pattern in the water --- unfortunately, the only way i could get both was with the shot i ended up with --- of course NOW i want more toe, but i really was happy with the result

apparently, most people thought there just wasn't enough POSITIVE space in the pic

This is so funny, especially when I have to scroll down my screen to see the whole picture, suddenly there was this toe. Very, very original.

I like this one a lot, and I know exactly what you're trying to do... but I can't help but wish there was more of the finger in the frame :)

This is hilarious, I love the sense of humor. Great color, Concept, Focus Excellent Work - Gotcha

I like the water texture and the colours. I would have liked to see more of the finger/ or none at all. Nice Pic. 8

Interesting idea. I'd like to see a bit more of that toe. Perhaps a few toes, partial foot. Very creative.
09/21/2002 05:49:00 PM
A little too much negative space ... is that a toe, or a thumb? A good looking pair of female feet would finish this photo --7
09/21/2002 02:51:00 PM
needs a bit more toe I think - funky idea though.
09/20/2002 12:22:00 PM
GREAT background and good contrast colour from the finger.
I'd like a bit more finger in frame ;)
Just my preference.

needs alot more of the finger
09/20/2002 08:53:00 AM
Would have liked to see the toe a little bit more then this would have been great.
09/20/2002 07:37:00 AM
Excellent. A very funny and clever idea. Maybe a fraction more toe would be good? 9-Martin

I laugh so hard when I saw this. I like it

Greate concept. A bit more finger would have been nice. But I must say this appears to be a well groomed finger... Lighting and focus are good. Good use of negative space.
09/18/2002 07:33:00 AM
Very well done and a great idea for a photograph.
09/18/2002 05:20:00 AM
Need to focus on the subject a lot more. Water shot is nice but it ends up looking like the subject more than the background
09/18/2002 02:38:00 AM
interesting...cute toe ;)
09/18/2002 02:01:00 AM
LOL. Great idea.

i like it
09/17/2002 10:33:00 PM
a great concept.... would have liked to see more of the toe/foot in the shot.
09/17/2002 08:28:00 PM
Neat idea.
09/17/2002 09:15:00 AM
I would like to see more of this foot. Nevertheless is a very good photo.
09/17/2002 08:48:00 AM
would've been nice o see more finger!

09/16/2002 11:50:00 PM
great idea. maybe a bit more of the finger? but I bet someone already said that. congrats on a good shot. cmcvety.
09/16/2002 11:19:00 PM
Hmmm... I'll state the obvious, that there is too much space. ha! I *think* it's a toe. - bamaster (6)
09/16/2002 09:38:00 PM
Good neg space, but I think we need to see more of the subject. Perhaps an entire foot actually dipping into the water at the same point, just more.
09/16/2002 06:30:00 PM
the watter idea is coll. u couldn't find ANY thing better than the toe?
09/16/2002 05:22:00 PM
a little too much negative space...?
09/16/2002 04:44:00 PM
Stunning shot!! Really well done. Good luck. Score 7 Justine
09/16/2002 04:43:00 PM
push that finger in the frame a little more!!!
