I almost didn't shoot anything for this challenge, but decided I really should get off my ass and start participating again. :) As soon as I read the challenge description, I had the shot visualized. It really was a sad excuse of a photo setup though...

The guy in the shot is my friend Don and his girlfriend is standing on his back. He's laying on the carpet next to my couch. I have a dry-erase board leaned up against the couch as a "backdrop". I didn't have any white towels, so he has a plain white t-shirt draped across his lower back. About the only thing that's real in this shot is the discomfort on his face. :D

I like the grimace on the face, How ever it only appears the person is standing there. I think it would have really added an element if the toes where digging into the back. Lighting and focus are very nice.

I like the look on the subjects face in this photograph. The lighting contrasts this harsh look and makes it look very relaxing as well. Nice job.

I don't believe the facial expression ;-). I think someone is actually enjoying this a great deal. Nice composition.

nice idea. A bit high on the exposure overall (his face is nicely exposed). I would have kept the feet in the DOF. 6
