Angler catches 89 STONE shark setting new world record for biggest fish caught on a rod Member reactions:
I caught a bass that big one time, but Grandma cooked it before we could get it weighed.
I like the tilt shift focus. Makes it look like miniature toys.
Awesome image DD, should've scored higher in my opinion.
thanks everyone and Funk, your comment means more to me than a gold.
Your welcome DD....after studying it again for a while, my eye was distracted by the blurry sky...Might have something to do with the score. Is there a particular reason you made it blurry. Other than that I can't think why it didn't score higher...
I like the way it makes the subjects pop out, 3D sort of, something to the line of what LunaC said, however it was probably not necessary. The score is actually pretty good, just didn't place. I like to mix focus sometimes like my Pierce Brosnan Pierce or Joe Walsh Joe Here it is unblurred Unblurred
Excellent chop, but as often happens, putting too many unnecessary objects produce wrong results. i.e how can the feeding bottle stay on the baby leg .
Interesting chop. Some critique: I would not use the brain in the glass bowl every single time.The part where Biden is holding toys became quite blurry somehow.
Heheheheehe cute chop my young padwan. You are having the same difficulty as I had on my last chop. Variable focus on many objects. Pay a little closer to those focus controls and never make anything behind the focal subject sharper than the front objects. That is a real importante tip. Congrats on the 3 cup.. Well done my friend
Ever since Romney mentioned "Big Bird" at last week's debate, the Sesame Street character has been in the spotlight and now stars in a new ad from President Obama's campaign.
The message from the Romney campaign? "Enough already!"
Online and on social media, Obama's team has been actively pushing the Big Bird criticism of Romney, including the correlation between Sesame Street and tighter regulations on Wall Street they claim Romney opposes.
Obama's team has also deployed a person dressed in a yellow bird costume to Romney's campaign events in order to drive home their message. Sesame Street is upset about the blatant use of its very much children's character, Big Bird, in Obama's ad for political purposes. "Pull the ad, or else", they said.
Photoshop Big Bird any way you wish. Showing how Big Bird could be misused by Obama election team is a plus.
The iconic Clock Tower of Britain's Parliament, commonly known as Big Ben, will be renamed in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, British authorities announced today. One of Britain's most recognizable landmarks, the 315-foot-high structure will now formally be known as Elizabeth Tower. People already gave Elizabeth Tower a new nickname - Large Liz. The tower's name change followed a campaign, backed by most MPs and the three main party leaders, in recognition of the Queen's 60 year reign.
Will the tower's name change (and gender reassignment), from Big Ben to Large Liz, change its looks too? Show how Big Ben may (or may not) be given a total makeover to suit its new name Large Liz.
Our veteran chopper GarRobMil suggested something we haven't tried before - shrinking celebrity faces on their heads. We suppose this is yet another way to lose a face :)
Take any celebrity and shrink his/her face (while keeping the head size intact or making the head even bigger). Here's a good example. Please don't forget to put celebrity names in your entry titles.
Photoshop this image of fisher and his big catch (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: dress up this fisher, change the big fish for some other animals or objects, use this big fish image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.

The Queen sent out invitations to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding to over 1900 guests. Whilst it is under the 3500 visitors from the wedding ceremony of Princess Diana and Prince Charles in 1981, the cash-strapped British royal family are searching for methods to reduce the costs for the upcoming wedding, especially since the substantial budget slashes by the British Prime Minister David Cameron. The Queen, who is now 84 years old, has worked her entire life and now her cash is running out. To make it all worse the Buckingham Palace roof is leaking, and now she also has to take care of this regal wedding event. The first choice was to create a less expensive wedding ceremony by reducing the amount of visitors from 4000 to 1900. Consequently, numerous global figures such as Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy weren't asked. It makes you wonder in what other ways the Royal family will make the wedding less costly than expected. The use of plastic cutlery has not been reported yet.
Show how the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton may become a cheap wedding in one way or another. Help the British royalty by showing the ideas to cut the costs for this wedding. Some examples are - cheapest wedding suit & dress ever, cheap food & entertainers for the wedding, and even some ways to save on sending out the wedding invitations. These are just some ideas for some cheap royal treatment.
