Any chance you could do a "How'd They Do That" article for this one ClubJ? I have a low end camera, but I might have the controls for this one :)

You are gutsy. How many of you see me in the photo as you are looking at it. It really does make you appear to be sitting in the back of the photo with a lot of depth. If this is what you were going for, it worked. But don't think that's it. If you are gutsy enough to supmit it, I'm gusty enough to score it for what I described it is a 5.

Well thought out. Creative. I had this same idea but since I have no camera to keep the lens cap on when I shot it, I couldn't produce this photo. Hopefully I'll get it back though. The focus is perfect. Can't argue with the DOF. I think you're better off shooting this at a higher aperture though with a lower ISO, for mood purposes. The dark filter is probably not necessary in this one but adds a nice touch. Great use of negative space without an actual subject to focus on. Definitely the best black picture this week. I bet you could use this as a Macro of your lenscap. This pic will probably have a cult following. I'll join the "Club" :) - Inspzil

Ummm, the focus is a little off, and don't you think the crop is too tight. Maybe if you converted it to black and white, rotated it 90 degrees to the left, then flipped and mirrored it, it would be more interesting. Oh yea, and you should have adjusted the curves a little more. Otherwise, great shot. karmat

The urban myth which bothers me the most....lol. Nice submission.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2002 05:14:00 PM
Ok. I'll give a 3 for having a title that fits the challenge. Jacko.

you are raising a deep philosophical question here ... you say you didn't submit a photo because they steal souls, but then the admin note says this is indeed a digital photo. did you steal your lens cap's soul? does a lens cap have one? how can you live with yourself? :)

Good idea, but I can't give a very high score because this isn't a better photograph than others in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2002 05:46:00 PM
Wow, can't wait to find out how you did this ; )
Actually, I quite like it! I need help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2002 07:20:00 PM
This is a good idea for the chalenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2002 05:08:00 PM
Very funny! but as a photo, I would NOT hang it on my wall. I kinda feel like this too, my photo is bit of a rebellion against the site, too. Good luck, but I still feel obliged to score this a 2. Swash

I am familiar with the superstition but feel it could've been depicted better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2002 02:54:00 AM
EXCELLENT!

I'm very impressed! Congrats... I hope you win!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2002 12:23:00 AM
Very cool! Wouldn't get it without the title though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2002 08:38:00 PM
but it is a photo site and the rule was to submit a photo
11/05/2002 04:14:00 PM
Clever in one sense... cheesy cop-out in another... having a hard time deciding here :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2002 02:12:00 PM
interesting idea, 10 points for originality but I have to mark you down I'm afraid for it not actually being of anything.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2002 09:50:00 AM
I'm sure you're gonna get lots of comments for this one...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2002 07:59:00 AM
very clever.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2002 07:29:00 AM
On theme. If this is a black photo, it would have been better to leave a suggestion. Why not sprockets or something to indicate black film as a submission to dp. Probably get a better reaction.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

sigh - I have a problem with pictures that won't load 10 for now. I'll come back tomorrow - Friday, still no luck - could it be the title jinxing me?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2002 10:55:00 AM
This hardly qualifies as a shot, but I like the creative thinking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2002 10:43:00 AM
I can`t believe you have no hot pixels..10

This is just plain silly.

11/04/2002 08:33:00 AM
LOL. Be interesting to see how well this rates. seasick - 5. (Just for the concept.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2002 03:39:00 AM
no submission, no score...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2002 02:52:00 AM
I'm thinking "copout" because there is no photo here. You rate high for a twist on the idea, but this IS a photography site.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2002 02:26:00 AM
Oops! Looks like you submitted by mistake!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting... But more of a gimmic than an entry in a photo challenge. 4 for imagination.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2002 12:37:00 AM
this one made me laugh... even if it isn't much of a photograph :o)
