Talked my brother in to coming over so I could slug him a few times. Boy, did I feel much better after we were done shooting. :-)

Very little editing in post. Adjust levels and contrast, cropped, & added the border.

Greetings from the CC, well congrats on being one of the few people in the challenge who displayed conflict. (not that i am stickler on topicality). The expression on the 'slugged' face is fabulous, I think you did very well at capturing the feeling of being hit, the half opened eyes, stunned feel...I am suprised this shot did not do much better. the black and white and the lighting are also very well done, clear sharp with nice tones. I like the compostion and the fact that the hand seems to come out of no where, adding to the feeling/expression of the guy being hit.
Very good job, well done and keep shooting : )

Not a bad idea for the challenge but this leaves me wanting. The look on the person's face is just not convincing to me. There is no pain, no shock, no anger, just a dull, drugged out look, more emotion from him would have really helped this shot. Also the lighting is too dark overall for me and yes my monitor is calibrated. A 5

Could this guy who is supposedly being struck be any more close to sleeping while being supposedly hit? People if your going to make a picture hitting someone damn it just do it do it. Don't goof around take one for the group damn it!

Wish this was more realistic...I can see the conflict but the reality of the photo just isnt there and needed to be there to depict the true nature of the conflict...

Ideal contrast. Nice border. Good Title. Just needs a little movement for to be more convincing. 8.
