Challenge: Langdon's Birthday (Advanced Editing V*)
Collection: Challenges: 2007
Camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
Location: guest room
Date: Mar 21, 2007
Aperture: 2.7
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/250

Date Uploaded: Mar 21, 2007

My first nude shot! well...not really nude, but close enough!

Sad to say it's not a real tattoo, just a fake. Besides, I HATE needles, so that would never happen anyways. The "tat" was actually made by printing out my creation in Word onto the backside of photo paper, waiting for the ink to dry enough so it wouldn't bleed, and then sticking in my prefferred spot. It was difficult making the little langdon icon (which I made in microsoft Paint) only because his stupid glasses had too much ink on them and it would bleed.

I nearly passed out from posing because I had to get in the most awkward poses by holding my breath and stretching and then holding that pose until the timer went off. I think it was worth it though.

Not a lot of editing done here. I had to clone out a shadow that was made by the light and carfully blur the background, but other than that it was just, crop, flipped, curves, color, sharpen. Hope you have a happy birthday Langdon!

YYYEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! RIBBON!!!!!

I'm sooo happy...dunno how I'm gonna explain this one to my relatives and such, but whatevah! Thank you everyone for your comments, scores, and sense of humor...and again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY LANGDON!

:)

Beautifully done. Wonderfully artistic. You've really created a classically acceptable "nude."

As perversions go, I think it's pretty damned healthy to look at this shot. You got us girl. Lucky Langdon :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It strikes me funny that, as of this moment, the shot has 4,696 views since voting, which is more than double that of the blue ribbon shot. What a bunch of perverts we must be! Granted, lots of those clicks are my own, but still.
