My 10,000th comment:
I actually voted on this one - a 4??? WTF was I thinking?? Drinking must've affected my mouse aim. Or maybe I thought this was the Doc himself and I wanted to punish him for something. I dunno, but now I just feel awful about it because this is really a fantastic job and I love the DPC Inside Humor type shots. I owe you a beer. Would you accept a ping pong ball?

Talk about out for the sympathy vote!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2008 05:26:09 AM
lol. Don't mean to laugh out loud at your pain, but this is clever. I wonder if the voters will mark you up or down since they know it's you? I'll give you a 7, 'cause you nailed the DoF.

NOOOOOOOOO - duuuude...heartbreaker.... think of it this way... new 5D replacement :)

edit: p.s. is that a cheapo velbon tripod I see? Doc..what were you thinking??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 12:41:36 AM
Tragic! It's like slowing down to look at an auto accident. How can this not get the sympathy vote? On the other hand, is it right for you to gain a high score by his loss? (I'm so confused. How will I ever resolve this conflict?)
