Shot against a blue Chromakey background and had the thought that Painters tape was almost the same color. Lying upside down on a stool with the bottom half of me covered with Chromakey also holding a peeled grapefruit rind.Photos4Aidan

I like this, though the peel in the hand is maybe too burnt.

Very unique. I really love what you've done here. 10

Very good surrealism. I kinda wish you had a vegetable peeler in the other hand to complete the story. Good job pulling this off under Basic Editing. 8

Nicely done in Basic Editing! I'm guessing you used some kind of tape, maybe reflective? And then overexposed?

on topic with this one -- one of my favorites this challenge

one of the better ones i've seen this challenge. not sure the high key approach compliments the image though.

Very creative, well done 8

Eye-catching and outrageous! It's kind of disturbing, but the very surreal feeling to it makes it less real and disturbing, and more of a fantasy scene.

This is by FAR the best image so far. It is a beautifully executed image, and it even-GASP-fits the challenge!

Nicely done. The twisted ribbon rising from the hand makes this an outstanding photo. Great composition and lighitng. The saturation worked perfectly. A 10.

This is very imaginative. Brilliant!
03/10/2005 01:27:58 PM
This is a GREAT effect and idea! Fits the challenge beautifully! I might like to see the peel at the end follow the line of the arm a little more, but that's just Trying to find something. . great shot and good luck!

definetly surreal. Overexposed, but I think you did so to pull off the effect. His expression makes the shot--frightened, awed, and fixated.

Very cool and creepy! 8

Theres nothing I can say to improve this photo. I love it. 10
03/09/2005 01:21:39 PM
first of all, very original, much kudos in that regard. This would have been ribbon material for me if the image were sharp and more in focus. I'm sure all of the adjusting required to wash out the arm makes that difficult. because there was an intense effort put into this shot, I have to give it a 9
