This is definitely "peggy" ... just wanted you to know everyone did not miss the pun ...

It is a cool shot too and brave dood who posed ... cheers to him.

The more I look at this, the more I like it. And I liked it just fine to begin with. Hope you print this, frame it, and give it Peggy Sue as a gift. (And yes, I know I already commented once - worth another one.)

What a totally cool photo! He absolutely looks man enough to not even be affected by a photo like this -- somehow, the dress doesn't seem to diminish his machismo even a bit :)

Congratulations on a well-deserved ribbon!!

Holy Crap; great shot; the angle of the photo is particularly great.

This is absolutely terrific and really out there. I enjoyed it very much, a 10 from me. But it's just too scary to put in my favorites ;-) (ok.. I may relent...)

Also a big thank you to my model who in order to "keep up the mystic" shall remain sexless!

That's a great shot...wonderul
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2007 02:45:36 PM
This is the kind of image that reveals itself a bit at a time... First you notice the macho look of the man with the tattoo, which contrast sharply with the tiara and the dress. Then you notice the breasts and artificial leg and it makes you wonder: is the model playing or is it for real? Very effective either way!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2007 01:23:20 PM
If this doesn't end up on the front page, something is just wrong! Great from concept to capture! LMAO

this is one of my absolute faves in the challenge. everything just fits! the older look of the photo, her / his look, the wooden leg (haha!).

magnificent!

Oi, she's a real cutie.

Seriously now. I like the style of this, the toning less so.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2007 07:09:06 PM
Love this! Shows real commitment! Looks like Marlon Brando in drag. I predict a ribbon. :)

Oh my goodness.....I have no idea what drew my eye to it, but do I see nipples too???? Now, THAT is "detail"!!!!! *chuckle*

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 09:13:19 PM
Far and away the best of the bunch. So much to love in a shot like this! The tattoo, the tiara, the prosthetic leg, the cigarette hanging from the lips...the details are just so rich and full of "oomph." Fabulous job; my pick for the blue! :)

Oh my gosh this is fantastic!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 03:35:55 PM
this is superb!! just cool, somehow I would put the model offcenter here to create a bit more dynamics, more movement, becasue the pose is absolutely excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 03:21:47 PM
Fabulous portrait!! So is he or isn't he? 10 from me.

plugh
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 12:24:23 PM
good pose, good subject matter! lighting could be better though. the light on him/here is the same as the wall behind him/her. put your subject in the shade next time, where the light falls nice on them but not on the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 12:23:22 PM
wow- love your expressions here. Very well done 7 for the pic and 1 more for you amazingly sporty attitude

definately a lot to absorb here.
not feeling the choice of background/setting.
nice nip detail
