A couple of guys messing around on a Wednesday night gave me this idea for this challenge. Adjusted the curves, hues on the yellow chanel to fix the skin tone, then ran it through NeatImage to smoothout the skin and reduce some noise.

The only thing I couldn't seem to fix is the showing of the histogram lines. They really bother me...too bad I can't fix them with PS.

Good choice to isolate the subject against a solid, dark background. Just enough blur to suggest the movement. Good job.

I find this image very funny and appealing. It seems posed but that adds to the humor. It has been neat-imaged a little too much in my opinion. I'd crop it a little lower on the top to get rid of the piece of hair sticking down. Effective for the challenge if not the most original idea... 6

Who nose how good this will do. Certainly displays conflict. Would have been better to have the head perfectly in focus with the hand slightly blurred (showing the motion). Good job, good luck.

Nicely done - the shapes are quite cool - the angle of that arm and the deep blue background are both good.

Just for my taste, the skin is a bit too smooth and without texture; almost blurred but not quite.

Good job. ouch...wish the fist had a little more muscle to it...but then again, the hitee probably doesn't

Wish this was more realistic....The attempt and idea is there but the reality is not grabbing me tight enough...but this is truely a conflict...

ewww, this actually doesnt look staged!

Lighting looks a bit yellow-greenish. Maybe some levels adjustment might help? Cute portrayal for the challenge.

thats a-pretty pretty good.

good representation of conflict and technically good, but (IMO) lacks any real punch (no pun intended)

I wish the face had been in better focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

HAHA good shot. 8. The expression on the guy's face is priceless. The photo fits the challenge and the creativity factor is there. I'd have used a a black background though.
