Red border suits the model in this shot. Same color as his neck. Blurry though, and his pose makes him look less intelligent than he is.

very blurry, only thing in focus is the very top of the presidential seal. probably off the TV given its a point and shoot camera, I doubt anyone in the public w/ a camera would be allowed to get that close. You did capture the confused, mentally challenged look of our president as he tries to form simple sentences.

Great photo. It should have been the real cover photo.

Now this is something one would see on the cover of Time Magazine for sure. There is some element about this photo that doesn't look real. There is some grain as well, maybe you had to use a high ISO? Overall lighting is good and so is the composition.

Great framing. This really looks like it would be on the Cover of TIME. The composition is strong as well. The only thing keeping it back from the highest marks is a bit of camera shake. It appears the shutter was too low? Below 1/60 perhaps, or a long lense vibrated on you. Not much you can do about this now, but this is great entry. If it was crystal clear, I'd think you might have ribbon'd.

Great photo. Exactly a time cover. Would of scored it a 10 if not for the soft focus. 8

I could see a sharper version of this on time, so good idea and capture. but sharper is the problem for me with this. Hey I thought Colleen Dewhurst died? Like how the one guy three rows back over Duyba's head looks like he is about to stick his tongue out...LOL! The people in general look dazed and confused or bored....can't imagine why!

This looks exactly like a real Time Magazine cover. How did you get this close to the president?

This is really good...I do wish the face was a little more in focus.

One of the better entries, but it would be improved with a shorter DOF to better set the President off from the people behind him.

camera shake and the composition is ordinary!

Cliche...but at least you were there.

The composition and subject is certainly something you'd expect to see on a magazine, with plenty of room for the title as well. As for the image itself, I find it soft, probably as a result of being handheld.

A too good picture of the worlds' most dangerous man (!). I like the picture, but the President is certainly not my favourite! A monochrome man..., in a colour-rich image.

nice job. totally looks like something from time.

Very nicely done. Looks just like a Time cover. Plenty of room for text.

Wow - great opportunity for a subject that happened to fall in the challenge dates!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Should have sharpened the George W. a little. Is this a real picture or did you take a shot of your TV? :) Would make a great magazine cover. Also you should have tried to get all of the Presidential Seal on the podium. Good job anway.

I think this is a tv? It seems to be oof and grainy. I'm not going to mark you down a lot for the subject. If I was voting subjectively you'd get a 1.

good for you! Totally meets the challenge!

I am sorry anything with this guy in it can not get more than a 5 from me!
03/22/2004 03:40:09 PM
You got the right focus! You have the workers in focus, and the President blurred out! :-)
03/22/2004 03:18:30 PM
blah? i dont get it? you took that picture?
03/22/2004 03:10:32 PM
could be a winner. great shot...the long DOF with everyone in focus is surprisingly effective.

You've capture the feel of the magazine very well

You must have cheered when you saw the challenge topic this week! Nicely done, overall. The focus could have been a little stronger here, but overall a job well done.

Awesome ! The composition and of course subject are great. 10

Very nice, could be a cover. It's interesting how bored the folks behind W. look.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2004 05:54:47 AM
very unusual, a shot of bush which will score you well, hoever as a photograph i couldn't see this being used for anything inside let alone on the cover - it's just not sharp enough.

what!? this guy is rather unappealing looking and he's blurry. Why are the people looking at his rear end?
