great image. i like how the sign is hiding your face - this definitely would have a much different feel if your face was revealed. i like the duotone and the blinds leading us to the main subject. nicely done.

Greetings from the Critique Club

What a fun-loving image this is. Yes the pun is right there, up front and (as it were) in your face. I like the unconventional framing and the excellent way you used light. The blinds have their own interest yet relentlessly direct the viewer to the subject - that sign and you!

While you received a pretty good score, I have the feeling that some of our more hurried voters just couldn't be troubled to stop and find the story that is so well interpreted here.

Keep up the good work and win some more ribbons.

I love this one. I'm not sure voters will take it as a "pun", but for me it's a ujnique combination of verbal and visual punning. Bumpey-bump and good luck :-)

LOL, but I bet a whole lot of quick-voters don't get it. Hope I'm wrong!

What a great piece of photography. The lighting effect creates an eerie look to the photo and the font is somewhat enigmatic. Overall, a fantastic picture. 10/10 for me! Well done!

SO CLEVER! Love the lighting and the blinds mimic the "washboard" abs. Really a good photo even without the held up sign. I like this very much!!!
