I can't believe I stuck my face in a fish tank and spat blue food colouring out in it! Well, actually it's not so hard to believe.

Oops, I think I'd call this shot by Jean Garret similar enough (and infinitely more well done!) to say that my shot isn't as totally unique as I first thought. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

Again, like I said during voting - this is great and original and different. Thanks for being you, Slip!! I think it's terrific. Nothing like blue teeth afterward!!!

You may disagree with me, and that's okay, but this doesn't meet the spirit of the challenge in my opinion.

Is this the one getting lots of odd comments but getting a high score?

Definitely taking a plunge... in the world of DPC risk. I'm looking forward to the "how I did it"
Very good image

Sorry this just doesn't do anything for me as a portrait.

Now that's a nasty, smack-up-the-side-of-the-head image! Far too much Neat Image on the nostrils and the negative space is way oversharpened. On the other hand, the horizon's crooked and your frame is not visible at all. Overall, a terrific image. Bravo! 9.

Different...strange...interesting. I like the composition...the blue stuff is kind of gross, but truely a nice refreshing change from all the female model shots. Good luck in the challenge. 9

For me this made me think of the box we get put in on DPC sometimes, where more artistic photos sometimes score lower than I'd expect because people don't always "get" them...so we're forced into a box if we want to compete.

spooky. Very imaginative and creative work. I like the crop and the dark feel of this shot. Good job and good luck in this challenge.

Slippy? This is weird, Im trying to figure out how you shot this. Fish tank?
Lovely blue dye, hope it didnt stain your teeth. Good lighting.

Disquieting and hillarious. i wish the hand wasn't cut off so abruptly, but it is a unique addition to the group. the framing is just right.

Great job. Bet the blue ink was a tasty beverage. I hope you chased it down with a nice cold one!!! Very interesting perspective. I have no idea how you did this. The colors are great and considering you're under water, it is amazingly clear. Imagination at it's best. 10!!!

LOL..what on earth? Interesting way to express yourself. Love the composition. Good luck!
