The obvious question here is............Did you get elected?

Beautifully done, John! Simplicity, and perfection. A super take on the WA, and an excellent image.

This is great.. A really different take. The expressive hands with the negative space implying distance to an audience really works.

Good luck "next year" - there seems to be no shortage of candidates.

Hey John - very intriguing image and setting. Love the use of negative space.

Maybe you can tip me off as to what it is you are a candidate for??

John....this is a very interesting image in its graphic simplicity.........it's just perfect for the theme. You've artistically portrayed a communication beautifully.......'agree with the praise for the negative space, it works well

Thanks for the good wishes Al.
I had to imply an audience because I couldn’t find a way to photograph it…

Ed, I was just imagining to be in front of the race for President of the United States; imagine all photo opportunities I could get flying around the world with Air Force One…

Great pic! Even if you didn't win, I bet you got "nominated real good".

From the thumbnail I thought it was Strad's pic, with sheet music.

The slightly blurred hand gives it a dynamic element.

Hello again Judi, thank you!
I was actually screaming ‘we will win’ following with my hands, opening them at the end of each word to emphasize the meaning, hoping to catch the right moment with the self-timer…

Patricia, unfortunately I can’t accept any more donations because I’m in the middle of a campaign finance profile investigation.
I will put on the list for 2012, thank you!

John,

Having served for eight years on the Eufaula, Alabama City Council, I can tell you that the best thing that could happen to you would be for you to lose the election. Your photo, on the other hand, IS a winner. It is powerful in its simplicity. Very well done, my friend!

Best regards,
Robert
