@Danlundberg: I don't think that those are supposed to be fashion accessories. I think that he's supposed to be some sort of cyborg or somethig. In which case, author, the shadows woud be on the inside of the holes in his flesh to give them some depth. Or use an internal bevel on the mechanical parts. Does that make sense?

I actually like the way it looks photographed! The lighting is interesting.

What about the baby's right to live? Maybe you should have used a fetus with its skull crushed in. I guess it makes it easier to pull the dead baby's corpse out. See that? I made a statement about the image AND the statement at the same time!

@adeincyprus: you are right barring wind conditions and earth tremors (natural or vehicles going by) or people kicking the table, or something falling from the sky like bird poop. All of these things can happen at any moment. So at that split second that those things are not occuring, these two forks and two sticks are well ballanced!

I just voted, and I was very surprised to see it was you! You're usually more confident in your work, it seems to be worried about what I say!! I didn't say it before, but I really like the image.

Actually, I do use my own sources. Not everytime. I never said that I did. All I'm saying is that if you can't find the source that you want, make it. I didn't say it to start a fight! it was just a suggestion, crazy!

I really didn't have a problem with the shadows on your source in the first place! Sheesh!

And I have 3 photoshop entries that feature me, my daughter and my fiance. The livingroom in my 3D entry is my livingroom. ALL of the textures are photographs of my actual furniture, the floor, the carpet and the walls of my livingroom. You can look at my reference photo of my living room and see that.

Yeah, the sun makes shaddows if your back is to it. Try at one or two facing west. Your subject doesn't have a head so you don't have to worry about squinting. Or use flood lights. My point is only that these contests are more satisfying (to me, anyway) when you use your own sources.

Make a source with no shaddows! Grab a camera, go outside in the sun and snap away. Sources don't have to come from the internet. Use your own. It's more satisfying that way, anway.

Nah, this one was easy. Blind Melon came right to me. The instructions DO NOT SAY THAT THE TITLE HAS TO BE THE NAME!! Just that the image has to represent a real band. So simple. Guessing is fun.

@CMYK46: The directions don't say that the title of the image has to be the name of the band. It just says that the image has to represent a real band. I think that the author just wanted us to try to figure it out from the image. Men At Work is a real band, and I knew who he was refering to as soon as I saw the image!

Haha! Actually, if you look closely everybody's fore fingers fit their nostrils! Put your finger in your nose and you will see that it fits perfectly no matter your size!

I think that the piece is fantastic. Besides what the others have said, I have only one problem with the composition itself. There is a LOT of natural light coming from within the corodors of the underground temple without any indication that there is a skylight or something from above! But that's ok. It looks really nice.

Having been a navigational radar technician on board a US Navy Aicraft carrier I can truly appreciate the humor in this! Well, I guess anybody could. I just like saying all of that.

Instead of a question/answer or knock knock joke, it's kinda a play on words. Which is good enough for me.

@CMYK46: since you must be difficult adding a definition, I'm assuming because you don't think that this entry fits, I was amused my this entry. Therefore it fits. If that was not your intention, sorry.

I wrote a story about a white raven. There aren't many of them, but there are a few in the world. But my story was scifi.

Nice image.

These damned bulbs are supposed to last for years! I've had so many blow out in the first couple of months that I want to go back to regular bulbs!

Nice job, though.

There is a movie and a book called "The Ransom of Red Chief." It is very funny. The book and the movie are a little different, of course. But this image reminds me of that. I think that I saw/read it in 6th grade.

Author: I think you had a good idea. But it is difficult to get good smoke images this way, I think. Even if you are using a point and shoot and/or don't have a lot of equipment you can try some variation of this: http://www.flickr.com/groups/technique/discuss/72157594252051944/

As far as setting up the composition, I would try a little harder.

I think that the idea is that the cows are adorable!! But when you go to a cow farm you gotta hold your nose! Well, I like the smell of cow farms. But I think I get it.
