A photograph of what we did during Spring Break could be worth five points on our final grade. Do you think this is worth five points?

Any comments on the image are also appreciated. Thanks…

Nope. I think the floating speaker looks out of place. I honestly don't see anything involved with spring break unless he is sleeping. You lost me with the floating books, sweats, dress shirt and glasses...

Wait, I get it... The floating items and bad dress job have something to do with taking drugs during spring break? Just kidding.

Sorry I see nothing to do with Spring Break.

ThomasG, i think you need your monitor calibrating, none of these items are 'floating' on mine. I can clearly see the floor, and it looks like a black sheet, as there are creases near the books.
Back to the photo. I like the idea, but the writing on the jogging bottoms draws far too much attention than what it should, very annoying.
It doesnt really say a great deal, or tell a story at all.

Whoa!!! PCThug... I didn't think this monitor was that off. But I see it now... I just got up and walked away for a minute and as I came back I could see the floor as I looked at it from a 45 degree angle on my monitor. Good thing I don't use this monitor for my photos :lol: and normally don't use it if I am giving any CC. (Now I look like the fool.) Going to go switch back to my computer NOW!

Sorry to the OP about the floating items. Still not a fan of the photo and not a 5. :(

I do appreciate honest critique. I too am concerned that things look like they are floating. My Photoshop skills are just not up to par (you should see the original). This is for a mechanical engineering class at Georgia Tech (hence the prominence of the name on the pants) and the person (me) dressed like a geek. The textbook has to be in the image. I am not sure if I will submit this image or not as I would like it to be as close to perfect as possible, and this one is not. I have the remainder of the week to come up with something else; if I do I will post it for critique. Again thank you for the feedback.

Get one of your girl friend using the book to cover her assets at the beach...oops, you are a geek, probably no girlfriend...just kidding!

The picture really doesn't speak to me or tell a story...what did you do (or are you doing) for break?

Back to the OP. Please do repost if you change it... We also want to know your grade on the final photo.

At least they are not out doing what most do on Spring Break....;)
The photo does not really captivate me either nor reflect anything in relation to SB.

You guys are great! The closer I get to this ME degree the more I find myself becoming a geek/nerd or whatever name one may choose. BUT, I was not always this way—check out the link in my signature. If I have time this week I will take another shot at creating a better image. I do have an idea in mind that includes my wife since I do not have a girlfriend. Stay tuned…

I am spending the majority of my spring break studying.

I agree. You have some great shots on your site!

By the way... you couldn't have been married to your wife for over twenty years... She isn't old enough to be married that long! ;)
