    Shouldn't you have whited her out instead of blacking her out?

    I tied it, but I am not much of a PP person, so this was what worked for my skills.

    Thanks for the votes, but need a lot more to get some feeling on how my photo is being viewed.

    175 memebers looked and only a handful bothered to vote? Why not all?

    I will give you the rundown on my photo in a few days once I get some more feedback.

    No comment. My membership on this site too good to risk banning. Tired-out narrative anyway.

    You do know how internet forums work, right? Most people aren't going to bother click through to your link, and if they do, the "puzzle" doesn't seem worth the effort. It's either a) a real neo-nazi with flag and paper, or b) someone not a neo-nazi with flag and paper. There are certainly neo-nazis out there, and some would be willing to have their photos taken. Or maybe you got a friend to do it. Why should we really care either way?

    I've seen some absurd threads started here over time and this one is up there with the best of them. My reaction is "Who apart from yourself cares?" I fail to see how a topic such as this offers anything to the wider membership of this forum in terms of knowledge and/or enjoyment of photography. OzJohn

    I guess I don't really understand the question. Yes, I'd assume it was staged, that she'd be standing like that showing the newspaper as she is. But what difference does it make whether we think it was staged or not? Seems to me there are other questions that would tell you more how your "photo is being viewed," e.g., how did you react emotionally, what do you perceive the intent of the artist to be, do you think this image has artistic merit, etc. Of course, those are not yes/no questions -- but often the best questions and answers require narrative.
