Not sure I like the grain on the statue

Sorry, gotta call this as either DNMC as a statue with no head that you took a picture of, or breaking the rules for using a picture of a muscled guy, cropping his head, and using expert-level challenge editing tools to make him look like a statue and then putting him into another picture.
i'm giving this a 1/10 based on the image and i have to flag this as suspect of rules violation even though i don't see this as a contender for a ribbon. rules are rules and apply to all entries.

No person and no cropped head... so DNMC :( 4 otherwise, -3 for DNMC = 1

Had this been a statue, it would not be grounds for a DQ. If you removed your son's head in Post processing, then that would be a reason for a DQ as that's not allowed in Advanced Editing.

Regardless, since it looks like a statue, you're going to get people who, like me, think it DNMC because it appears to not be a real person. But even it it looked like a person, cropping the head should be cropped by the frame, not edited out or hidden.

I will say if you took this shot like this without Photoshop trickery then VERY WELL DONE! :)

Hope this helps.

Now that's one way to crop a head! I think most were looking for a real person. Though if this IS a real person, you have some explaining to do...

Ha! Brilliant!

Wish it were in BW... so the color didn't detract from your smart idea.
