Self portrait

Hehe

I've always wanted to redo my "POTS" idea.

STOP backwards is POTS. Get it? ;-)

I shot this in RAW to get a more dynamic range for exposure of the sky versus me. I was veeerrry dark in the original shot because I had to keep the sky exposed.

//dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=141115

I decided to include a person in this redo because it needed a central focus and a lot of people didn't understand the connection with the pots and the stop sign. I also changed the title so a little more people might get it. :-)

There is nothing better than a good sense of humour and nothing healthier than a good laugh at oneself. ;-) You are wild in a very positive sense of the word. :-) I love your imagination and creativity. Keep it up!

That's a hill :-)
It's disorienting on purpose, I'd rather have the subconcious effect then straighten it ;-)

Good one! I expect to see this on the front page.

Wow, talk about an improvement on a shot! You've come a long way, kiddo! LOL! An 8 for overall improvement and humor! ;) :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 05:22:32 PM
Hahaha! Love this one! Really a brainteaser though. It might not appeal to everyone. Had to look a few times myself before I got it. Now that I do, I can't take my eyes off it. Unreal expression and nice post processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 01:06:55 PM
Boy I must be a complete moron because I didnt get it until I searched out your original. If I had only looked at that pic I would have still been confused. But now that I understand the story I can chuckle. Much better shot, great editing (as usual) and just an overall cool feel to this (like you need anyone to tell you this). I expect this to do well. Good job.

It's like emo meets Nebraska. Cool shot. I don't understand it all but then I don't have to. I don't want to just skip this one, and I think it is the color that is doing it for me. I like it.
