This is StuCat.

He is one of the toughest guys I know. This is not trick photography this is just pure brawn

I was happy that he agreed to model for me for this challenge.

Thank you to everyone who looked at, voted on and commented on this pic. I was not expecting a high finish.

The overexposed background was intentional to highlight my subject ... almost like a King of Suburbia kind of deal

Thanks again for looking

Construction guys - for sure a necessary part of the suburbs. Kudos to you for getting up there with him. Great pose. I don't like the bright area to the right but I doubt there was much you could do about that :D

Nice idea, but over exposed in my eye

Screams 'Suburbia' to me. The edit is very effective bringing out the main subject. 10

Love the fact that the suburbian type of home style shows in the background, leaving the foreground to be focused on but, still fits within the challenge even without the title!

Awesome

Nice shot. Enjoy the use of sepia. I wish the houses had a little more contrast, but it's not detracting (and may be emphasizing your subject a bit more, which is a good thing ;-)

Excellent entry. Contrast on the black and white is good. I think the featureless sky real accentuates the boringness of suburbia. Well done

Nice idea! Well done. Little bright on the houses though.

Nice image - Like the tones and the expression from the guy. The background highlights that are blown out though are very distracting. Nice POV.
