Always wanted to do this poster...

Post challenge.
I hoped that this would do better, but I guess not everybody got the reference:

LOL! This title and your expression totally crack me up. Love the shot. I wish there were a little less negative space in the top, but I can see on a poster, your head placement would be perfect for leaving the space for the text. Good job.

If I knew about the poster I would have given this a 10 instead of a 9!! : ) Fantastic reproduction, man!! : )

This is very funny. I didn't realise until reading the comments that it's actually a reference to another poster. I've never seen this before though, so this is very funny. :)

Ok so I looked it up. What an awesome reproduction! Now I have to bump this up.

Like my Dad always said, think before you say something stupid, stupid. Nice reproduction. Good luck.

Lol! There's a lot of folks that could use a couple of glasses of that! i ove this shot though tI feel the negative space above you could be cropped tighter, nicely done anyways.

nice composition, lights, expressions and great sharpness. helmet size odd though.

12/07/2007 03:42:48 PM
haha. I like how the colors give it a little warmer feel, and your caption completely gives of the bad attitude vibe.

hahaha YES! perfect shot....9

Cool idea for a SP. I like the lighting and pose, however a tighter crop off the top IMO would have helped. Nice work.
12/06/2007 09:19:53 AM
Great portrait... like a little tighter crop though.
12/06/2007 02:58:49 AM

The title made me laugh, and the expression on your face really portrays sarcasm. Great photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 08:25:14 PM
OMG! This is hilarious! 10!
12/05/2007 06:39:41 PM
Nice attempt at reproducing well-known poster.
12/05/2007 06:15:34 PM
ROFL! You really should put that title in the negative space of the photo and sell prints. I would buy one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 02:17:26 PM
Hee, hee, put the title up in the negative space, and you've got a great poster/magnet/etc. I can even see it on a coffe mug w/ the words on the opposite side of the cup.

12/05/2007 01:33:26 PM
Nice job! I love the simplicity of this, but the great depth it has. Excellent work.
12/05/2007 12:33:30 PM
This happens to be my favorite saying of all time. 10 for your title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:13:01 PM
Gotta say, I dont know who you are but I do like your sense of humour. Far more than simply a 'gag' title though as your expression just underscores the chipy insultiness of it. I am guessing that it is a wall behind you but top job as it looks like you could be standing in the middle of the desert

8 from me

This is by far one of the coolest shots in this challenge! I had a shirt with this on it a long while ago... I wish I had that shirt still.

Into my favs.
