You should have put these outside, in the sand and and taken the photo around dusk and get as low to the ground as possible. I would actually build up the sand I was going to place these on so the center of my lens would be almost level with the base of the pyramid. That would help make these pyramids "appear realistic".
Larry Moran: This is a much better photo than the winner.
I agree, I think this photo should have won and the 27th place photo a close second. Thats just my opinion...
tarakanchik: While it is the same picture, people enter same shots in more than one challenge all the time... It doesn't get noticed because it is rare that it wins twice.
Medium rare I'd say tarakanchik. Good pick 7 years ago, maybe this year chon wai can get the entire head in the frame.
Malcolm Chalmers: Are you asking us to have purposely put the uninteresting foreground out of focus to highlight the more interesting background or unintentionally have the foreground blurry?
I really don't think it matters if it was done on purpose or by accident as long as " the subject (and there MUST be a subject, no landscapes) to be out of focus while the background is crisp and clear." So to clarify, blurry foreground clear background.
I'm guessing mike is 40 years old and acts like he is 17... Just jokin mike cool challenge, I have to enter.
Joel dc: nice shot. i won't join because of this cool nice shot
I think you should enter Joel dc, as long as people vote according to the challenge specifications and you enter a photo that meets the criteria, you will have a good chance at earning a top place as there are not many photos that do meet the criteria. I say go for it. Hell I did.
Finally a photo that fits the challenge perfectly!
slimymackeral: Thanks Guys, I'm Stoked!
Third times a charm.
I thought the challenge was "Blurry noisy cellphone photo's that are still interesting" not cellphone photos that are interesting. But I guess I could be wrong.
wtf chon wai? Is this the only photo you have? People, check the winning photo in the parrots challenge it might look familiar.
Morris Day and the Time might have a problem with the title of this photo.
"straight out of the phone no post processing" that means no ysal, enter the photo as is.
Question: Is using the "auto" iso setting considered cheating? Just curious what others think. Personally I think if you didn't set up your camera manually, you can't really take credit for the photo because your camera did all the thinking for you. Don't be shy let me know what you think.
Nice shot slim. Congratulations.
Looks like he's constipated.
Blackfjord: Kuato from Arnold's Total Recall!

This is actually a sea dragon...
That is a sea dragon. Google dragon horse images and see what comes up.
Looks like alzheimers not loneliness.
Poor choice of model. Congratulations.
