Well, been doing the chicken dance since I started editing this shot. I was excited for this challenge as most of my shots are dark, moody, edgey and not everyones cup of tea. SO I thought I might just fit right in on this challenge.

Gotta admit a 7.5 as of right now is blowing me away, I have a blank button where the update one was!!

Well wow, I have now have the complete collection of Ribbons~!!

Thank you all so much for the brilliant comments, meant a lot. I love this shot

09/15/2009 04:13:19 PM
Great effort produced a humorous result that looks like it could be Heida's.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2009 08:20:26 AM
I'm thinking this is a 21_F.gif JulietNN photo? The drama you put in your photos is so awesome. I love the use of highlight and his pose is so artsy and symbolic. The sky is perfect too. Excellent job! 9

One of the more beautiful pictures I have seen on this site. Definitely a favourite.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2009 08:12:50 PM
So many people use black and white for no real reason but your use of it here really makes the shot striking. Color would really lessen the impact of the image.

09/10/2009 03:56:17 PM
My choice for the blue! Powerful, weird, magical and mysterious all in on!

Fantastic image and wonderful recreation of an image in "Heida style" This should do very well :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 07:30:48 PM
Incredibly artful. The tonal range is excellent!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 06:34:03 PM
My pick for the blue (well, if I can't have it. ;)). You took your own shot but clearly have heida elements in it. Fantasy. B&W. Burn. 10 Looking at the model this must be Juliet's. With your 7.5 it should be the blue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 05:32:11 PM
Love the concept, and the execution is superb!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 05:26:58 PM
Freakin-aye I hope you get the blue.

09/09/2009 04:11:50 PM
My pick for the blue. Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 04:07:46 PM
Yes, you did it. This could be a Heida photo :) Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 10:00:26 AM
I don't think I have seen such a photo before. I like it vey much. But maybe, in this case, a little desaturation instead of a complete black and white would give a more Heidastyle feel. Maybe.
