Awesome wall, Brandon; using it now. Gives me kind of a creepy zombie-flick feel. Thanks!

wow, my new wallpaper, very cool. Nice to have something different as your wallpaper instead of an endless stream of nature photographs.

This would have been great for Halloween! Maybe add a little extra grain to give it that over-the-top zombie feeling?

This is a little too creepy for a wallpaper...but it would make a good stock photo, especially if you kept the eyes normal. Technique is really good though, keep up the good photography.

Interesting... I wouldn't use it for a wall paper but it's an interesting photo. I think the idea to add some grain is a great idea.

Not remotely interesting, artistic, or even particularly well executed. Why should anyone want a desktop with something so ugly on it?

Don't worry about it, man. IFL is full of elitist assholes who won't be happy until you submit the same, tired old sunset like everybody else.

Personally, I'm extremely happy to see a little diversity in IFL's daily offerings, and saddened that this group of rumpjockeys have managed to stick a pin in your birthday balloon.

If you don't like the company, Kierke, or the 'tired old sunsets' you could hang out somewhere else. Possibly some literary circle. You obviously have a fabulously rich vocabulary.

"Tired old sunsets?" Well, I prefer beauty as opposed to something quite disturbing, like this picture is. Call me a crazy "rumpjockey" (whatever that is. I have to look that one up.)

Also, something can "be done very well", but that doesn't mean the thing being done is a good thing to do.

It's not such a bad photo if you left the irises where they're supposed to be. People are creeped out because of the missing eyes.

This photo is very suitable for the movie poster, such as Hannibal or some infected zombie movies..

tasteless, disgusting, and offensive. the maker of this image has managed to bring about the worst on IFL such that there is no equal. this image sure is not that 'tired old sunset', but trust me, an image of that 'tired old sunset' would look godly compared to this. i am not an elitist, but if you call those of us who can tell a good picture from a bad one, then i guess i am guilty. my suggestion is that the maker of this image seems to have a lot of talent, try posting on deviantart.com and you might even find artists who share your vision = ) on IFL your picture just sticks out like a sore thumb... not in a good way.

I hate when people defend crap solely because it's unique by default. I know the submitter fancies himself a rebel, but in reality he's closer to a hack. Look, I get tired of sunsets too. I'd get tired of lobster if I had to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day. But I wouldn't turn to eating dirt just for the sake of changing pace.

It's nice to see something different at IFL! I'm certain this little splash of individuality won't disturb you too much. Goodness! It looks great on my Ipod Touch... By the way I like a nice sunset as well-art is art.

brizkit - Honestly, I have just been lurking on this site for a while, and I made this background and I thought, "Hey, maybe someone else would enjoy this." because I know that I like creepy stuff. Let me assure you that being a "rebel" on a website was not my intention. I think it's solely a case of me sharing something that I enjoy. To each his own.

Brandon, no offense but please don't post this kinda picture again... if you have to... deviantart!!! stay away from my pretty wall paper site please =D do it on flickr even.

All you people need to chill. If IFL put it up it meets their standards. I think the fact that it has got so many responses proves (good or bad) that it has presence. I think its okay better than some worse than others. Everybody has their own style. If you like it or not just chill. I see nothing tasteless, disgusting, or offensive about it. How you see that I'll never know. Just chill people.

it's like applying the obscenity rule for pornography, you know it's obscene when you see it, and same goes for this disgusting picture = )and also, we are chill, and we are also mad at IFL's decision of admitting this picture, because it's so much lower in artistic quality and value than pretty much the rest of the pictures admitted on this site. it's like... admitting a lump of coal at a gem exhibition, i mean... com'on IFL.

Tasteless: not having or exhibiting good taste
Disgusting: causing marked aversion aroused by something highly distasteful
Offensive: causing displeasure or resentment

all the definition are from merriam webster online, so tell me that's not how people feel after seeing this picture = )

@ Bin Mei Thanks for the definitions and to answer you question no I don't feel that at all. Just because you don't like it does not mean that others will not. I like the pic. Its not my favorite but it speaks on a different level to me. I'm sure you will try to blast me for this but whatever. Its not up to you what IFL posts on the site and I'm glad because I believe this pic to be worthy. Its not your site as you state in one of your comments. He has every right to submit pics to this site if you don't like it don't look!!!

Oh, the drama! Well, I like it. Who knew whiting out irises could get so many people in a tizzy?

@ Reddog i was going to make some comparison between two girls one cup and this pic and how both failed to achieve the standard and the decency of the artistic medium of which they are posted on, but i am too lazy, and i am glad to see that ifl crew corrected themselves and haven't admitted anymore pictures of this kind... for now anyways.
like i said, this artist seems to have a lot of talent with photoshop and use of lighting, should post on deviantart and he might even get a bigger following = )

I think it sucks but if some people like it, then I guess it was worth submitting. Such is art.

I think its cool. At the least, it's different from the same old overdone HDR landscapes that everyone seems to think are so revolutionary.
Posted By: Reddog
about 5 years, 9 months ago
Back @ Bin Mei: Not a fan of the video (2 G 1 Cup) but how did it fail to achieve the standard and decency of the artistic medium it is posted on? What medium? The internet? I believe it was intented to shock and gross you out. I don't believe that the submitters intention here. He likes the dark stuff and this is his statement. Also I don't believe IFL corrected themselves. How do you come to that conclusion? Is it because there hasn't been another pic of a doc with white eyes? Thats a reach. I'm done with this but next time try some CC instead of insulting another persons pic. Peace

@mcqdeltat I disagree, I think although Bin's attempt to draw a connection between 2g1c is a little far fetched with regards to this particular picture, I do give some merit to what he is trying to establish; that this picture is, indeed, a deviation from the "traditional sense" of the artistic value that IFL has long been trying to establish. I don't think you should go as far to call Bin Mei a narrow minded elitist, because, afterall, he represents the view of the artists who enjoys the 'traditional sense', and as such it's not hard to see how a zombie doc stands out like a sore thumb among other photographic sceneries. And mind you, Bin Mei is not the only artist who dislikes this picture, he is simply the most outspoken.

Second, art is not simply a piece of imagery but a feeling and reaction. As such feelings and reactions can be both enjoyment and repulsion right? Or do you align yourself more along the line of "you can only say good things about my art or die"? I mean, that's cool too... kinda.

Third, triple post?

A lot a people seem to dislike this picture. I Think its amazing in a strange symbolic way. When I look at it, my views of surgeons change. Are surgeons soul-less beings going around hacking up the living?
Of course not, but you never know.

Anyways, great pic.

I don't believe it's socially correct of you people to be saying a blind man is ugly and horrible and disturbing. Especially to his "buddie". I think it's very awesome and kind of him to include his friend with a disability in his work. Congratulations on a very detailed and fitting piece of art brandon.

Even if I didn't find the idea intriguing this would still hold a special place in my heart simply because it managed to piss off so many of the elitist pricks in this site. Keep it up love.

Underrated. If I'm going to be a nazi I could wish for better editing of the eyes (his right, our left looks a bit inconsistent). This fits on my laptop - not on my stationary, but definitely on my laptop.

i don't know anything about photography or anything, but i think its hilarious how serious people take things on here. like the guy at the very top, it makes him want to vomit? seriously? and stubulman, "comment... no comment." you had plenty of time to come up with something good or clever and thats what you chose to post? good one. ben mei, what kind of sore thumb sticks out in a good way? and i've seen brizkit comment on a few other ones. and if this brandon locke is such a hack, what does that make him... the guy who sits on his computer to bully people via comments? lame i think. it keeps going on the whole way down to the bottom. a lot of people like it but the negative ones... lighten up people. he took a picture that he thought was cool. honestly i like it. but if i didn't, what's the point in ragging on him? if that makes you a bigger man (or woman}, get a life. it's really not that serious...

A lot of controversy over a photograph. Personally I think many people should be ashamed of what they've said about this blind man "making them want to vomit" and whatnot. But alas, people with disabilities will always be subject to mainstream prejudice. It's not a favorite wallpaper of mine, but I can see the "creative look" the author of this picture was aiming for. I give it a 4/5 stars for a good effort
