We had fun with this shoot. The faces he pulled had me laughing. This wasn't my first choice but unless I wanted to be DQ'ed for too much editing...this was the one I ended up going with.

Greetings from the Critique Club fellow Untouchable - Lets see if I can do you justice here.

Love the pose. Great humor (quite the wig)and the contradiction between happy peaceloving long hair hippy freak and the look he has that I am assuming is towards the thought of eating peas (yuk) is entertaining. It does look like you had fun with the shoot.

I think the peas needed to be on a bit more of an angle to see the whole peace sign. You can tell what it is but it isnt prominent enough to stand out strong. They also seemto have a bit of a disconnect with the model becuase of the size of the peace sign and the blur around it. The editing is cool and funky with a nice glow to it overall.

I think the voting was a bit harsh on yours - the ones and twos were unneccessary. SHould have been higher. Now on to the next challenge.

the peas have taken a backseat to the model and to me the tounge seems anti-peace to me.

id like it better if the peace sign (made of peas) was angled toward the camera more. its kind of hard to tell what it is.
