I gotta say man, I seriously do laugh every time I see this picture. Do you regret entering it? I came close myself, but chickened out.

I wonder what the voting histogram would look like for users who joined DPC before DrJones famous shot vs. users who joined after. Again, a great parody.

This is sooo funny. I love it!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 07:59:11 AM
I agree - I gave it an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 12:34:57 AM
yet ANOTHER that should have scored better. Do people here not have a sense of humour???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 12:10:35 AM
Great shot!!! Though the lighting is a little bit harsh, I think you did a wonderful job. I thought it would score higher.

I just noticed you copied this pose and part of the title from another nude challenge...LOL

Interesting portrait. I like it.

great shot combining nudity with reality and a sense of humour
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 03:44:26 PM
Thats pretty funny. Wish the focus was a little sharper but still got a good laugh.

Bravo to you. Great parody of a classic DPC shot. Still laughing...

Very funny, nice tribute to two excellent previous DPC entries.

Hehe, you must have had a lot of fun making this one. 5

funny take on the challenge. You're a braver man than I.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 11:23:28 AM
Funny! A little too washed out, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 12:49:06 AM
Interesting high key approach to the challenge. Your lighting actually works pretty well in this shot and your pose makes brings the best out of your model. Nice work.

least you could have done is waxed your legs!

08/26/2005 09:10:31 PM
funny take on a classic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 07:54:11 PM
hahaha...that's a little disturbing. The lines across the left arm, back and head are a little too washed out for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 09:14:36 AM
Brave, bold, bareass, Bravo! 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 11:32:45 PM
Love your whimsey. Great job of duplicating the lighting. You're a braver man than I am.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 10:45:13 PM
Mwuhahahaha.......i bet that hurt crossing your legs!! Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 09:37:15 PM
I like this I think you did a great job. I like the high key quality of it. I hope it does well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 09:16:01 PM
That is such a laugh. I prefer the original though :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 05:58:12 PM
DrJOnes comes out from behind the camera?
I'm scared & impressed at the same time. The pose is good. I like the harsh light from behind. I have to stop looking at this now.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 05:50:28 PM
This just cracks me up! Way to go! Lighting is good, pic seems a bit out of focus around the legs, could just be my monitor though. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 08:07:34 AM
Have I seen this image before? I really think I should score this low for revenge. My ass still hurts from it hitting the floor when I waw this. AWESOME sense of humor, not to mention good photography. I just wish I had thought of this! Definatley one of my favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 06:02:18 AM
Nice high-key shot. I really like this, the hard hat is that "little something extra" that I look for in challenges. Just a little something unexpected to give the shot some added spark.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 05:17:15 AM
impressive 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 01:36:52 AM
The lighting appears too harsh from the right... but I must agree that while it does not come close to the ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/115/thumb/28005.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/115/thumb/28005.jpg', '/') + 1) . ',
it still ranks in top 20 for the challenge. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 10:15:02 PM
I have to admit, I like this shot, but am at a loss for words when trying to tell you why I do... I can imagine all the possible technical criticisms, but they seem irrelevant.... I just like it. Good Luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 06:13:04 PM
Great image, I think that the only flaw I can see in this image is the light. The shadows bother me slightly, possibly a fill light specifically for the shadows?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:17:46 PM
ROFL!!

08/24/2005 07:47:27 AM
Is that Bianca?
Hmm, something looks different. Must be the hat.
Great, funny well done. 7

gosh i hope this wins.. it has everything... nudity... humour... and is very very tastefully done... lol....congrats.. 10 from me.....

I'm not sure there are any words. Technically a tiny bit too soft for my taste, but what do I know. Looks familar.....hmmmmm.

fun! like the ligthing and the framing of the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 01:44:45 AM
overexposed, but otherwise cute
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 01:15:41 AM
Oh baby baby! :P Aside from the obvious comic here, the execution is very good, lighting, etc... well done! 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:21:33 AM
That pose strikes me as a bit odd somehow...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 09:38:59 PM
I just love the way you pointed your toes!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 09:33:27 PM
Ah yes, drjones. a good take on that photo, though there are some problems. The background is almost completely blownout, causing a halo around the model. The pose also doesnt really work for a male. Good attempt though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 08:46:39 PM
I think Dr. Jones is calling. He want's his idea back :) Cool high key effect.

WHAT A RIOT!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 03:18:43 PM
This image fooled me I thought for sure he is at it again with one of his nudes but then I was like wow different. Great attempt I have to give you an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:39:17 AM
Excellent joke about DrJones's recent entry. On a serious note, while the whites are very good, the blacks could've used more contrast and toning. (Burning tool would help here). Composition is a bit off as all sides are of different lenght in relation to the model. I also find the lighting to be a little too bright. Would've wished for more details on the face/helmet as well. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:03:57 AM
overexposed... sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 10:07:20 AM
Funny and clever. I hope others realize whats going on, though I'm sure they will.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 07:56:55 AM
A really brave and charming shot. The concept-title is wonderfully whimsical. My only problem perhaps is the bright lighting. Otherwise, I admire it very much. 8

good use of negative space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 01:27:40 AM
this photo made me laugh out loud!!! that does not happen very often. Great, Great, Great. I am hoping you place well. It is good to have some fun with the challenges, though most people don't do a good job of being truely humerous. Great job!

Those are huge thighs. He's like a big newborn baby.

I am left speechless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:52:52 PM
Thanks for putting a smile on my face! Next time put a flower on the hard hat :D Only thing technically is the cropping is a bit tight. Nice use of highlights.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:39:12 PM
IMHO highlights are blown out. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:05:43 PM
I like the white bg. There doesn't seem to be a complete use of the tonal range, but I could be picking a nit there. It does seems a little more contrast would boost things up a notch. Overall a very nicely composed, cropped, and posed image, I'm sure if I were a woman this photo would really do it for me :) Good job and good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:23:58 PM
A little bright
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:05:00 PM
I've go to give you credit for this one. It took alot of guts to pose like this! A very funny and creative parody.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:40:52 PM
OK, this is hilarious. People who haven't been around or haven't gone back wouldn't get it, but I appreciate the humor. A little overexposed rather than high key. 7.

Men are just not made to pose like that!

08/22/2005 03:59:30 PM
I like the round curves in the original better ..... but great idea. Bit overexposed on the helmet and shoulders.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 03:49:05 PM
youre naughty :p
I love it hehehe. bumping it up ( i didnt get the referance the first time because im slow like that). Hope you dont get pulled down for those "nudes cant be funny" and "nudes have to be sexy" voters. Not hat a man in uniform isnt sexy OMG!

08/22/2005 11:35:39 AM
At first I wasn't going to comment on this photo for whatever insane reason but after perusing some of the other entries I decided to comment. I applaud the photographer and model for having the courage to showcase a non-traditional male form. The majority of society is not thin and muscular. We have padding and softness and are real rather than fantasy. I give this picture a 10 for it's sheer statement!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:21:24 AM
would have been a lot better with the model looking a bit more towards the camera, if the left hand was turned a bit so that the fingers pointed straight down, and light grey border :)

Humor factor: Very high
Courage: Medal of Honor
Consider it the highest ranked male nude scored by me.

I am pleased to be able to give this a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:58:56 AM
Great play on the previous photos. I think that dimming the light from the right and maybe adding a little light from the left could really smooth out and improve this shot.

LMAOOOO, OMG! This is so disturbing!!!! 10 LMAOOOO

08/22/2005 12:29:25 AM
I'm so pleased to see another guy not ashamed of his nudity. Love the hard hat. Just wish there were a tad more contrast and not such a tight crop across the top. Good pose. Great composition.
