I like the concept and idea of the shot.....the gum being the only thing in color. The only thing that bothers me is the chin of your model, it takes away from the softness of the shot. Other than that it is a great shot!

great title, could have easily finished higher, I love the title, congrats on tenth!

I figured this image would boot me out of any chance at top 5. A great shot that I was sure was at least getting a 6.8. Love it - playful and great color. Congratulations on top ten!

Ha! Great shot again, Tate. The bit on the nose really is great, and your title fits perfectly.

Cool image with great color & lighting. The sat/desat works well here. I love the little stick to the nose - it makes the shot IMO. I personally think a shave would have helped the skin look better - the stubble gives away the processing (I think) - hair is so stinkin' tricky. Very nice job. Back to bump you to 8.

Nice use of color.

Perfect moment and sticky situation

Perfect bubble! Nice selective desat - 8.

i like the sticky nose

This is the kind of shot I don't normally like, staged with a single subject, but there are some subtle touches that really make this work: the narrow DOF on the face with creepy facial hair, the touch of gum to the nose, the womb-like shape of the bubble. 7 bump to 8

Great picure! Desat really emphasizes the gum. Can't wait to see you pull it away.

This is really good. The grey tones and the pink go fantastically well together. Composition, idea and lighting are great. Hope this does well for you.

This is a great shot. The sesat work really makes this one IMO.

Nice job with it sticking to his nose! Selective desaturation works great here.

Love this entry. The tight crop and selective desat are good compositional choices. His face appears a bit "neatimaged" out and I wish there was more texture. Overall excellent and my vote for 2nd place in this challenge. 9

Splat would have been good...
