Whooo hoo!
First ribbon...

Went down 0,2 in the last 24 hour, kinda gut wrenching stuff to loose that much in such a short time when you are over 7.

Shit happens though, I will be back :)

---------
Thanks to Einar Írn Bjarnason for modeling.

This guy was so easy to work with. Taken with 2 bowens lights (one for the backround and a softbox to the face.)

Not happy not having any catchlight to work with here. I put the strobe on the wrong side of him.

Besides that. I am satisfied.

Hopefully it scores good and my team advances to the photobowl!

By far the most creative piece. Great concept.
Only thing I noticed was the necklace was a tad distracting. (Just to add to your believability - he shouldnt have anything he could "choke" himself with if he were in an instituion. Also the "table" was a tad on the shiny side. But again great piece and I really like the colors used

  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2006 04:50:07 AM
Excellent! I also love the whole concept and catch phrase!

Lighting could be a bit better on the mug, it's a bit too glarry now, but I'm just being picky because I like it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2006 02:21:01 AM
ultra.. this is too good... you got it!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 05:14:50 PM
I like this idea, maybe a little more contrast, and get rid of the necklaces?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 04:05:40 PM
Off the wall. I like this.....quite a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

10/07/2006 02:04:01 PM
Terrific concept. Great expression. Exceptional technical execution. Gotta be one of the best of the challenge. Kudos to you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2006 09:44:40 AM
nice presentation - and very funny.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2006 02:53:21 PM
superb expression. nice harmony of red hair and amber beer in this otherwise (almost) colourless photo. the title is too long, something more to the point would be better, such as "crazy for Holsten" or "Beernut" :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2006 02:27:57 PM
Cute! Nice clean image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2006 09:34:12 AM
Love the lighting, love the whole setup i.e. white BG, White sheet etc, 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2006 02:07:08 AM
I gave this shot a 7, but (I do not know exactly why) it really impressed me and I found myself thinking about it several time this days. This is exactly what an advertisement should be able to do, so I'm going to modify my vote: 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2006 10:04:36 PM
VERY funny!

Great idea and comp. Comp lends itself well to text placement and you have a pretty catchy tagline. Lighting is nice but photo couls use a bit more contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2006 09:24:01 PM
Great job. The person blending into the background is really nice. The beer really makes me want a drink. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great picture! I like it 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2006 04:44:07 PM
Brilliant distinction between the whites.. It must have taken ages to set your white balance. Love the basic "straw" tones against all the shades of white.

ROFL This is excellent. ha ha ha ha
