I hope all your friends didn't do this for just a photo. That stuff looks like it will take awhile to get out of the hair. Is this from a play or something? I wish he was holding a box with ebay on it.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2007 08:24:46 AM
It's really funny!

However, are they supposed to be homeless? How does that fit in with "i bought a potatoe on ebay"?

Great effects though :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I can fully understand the effort and time required to produce this but it almost works against you in that it appears perhaps overly setup. Its almost like a theatrical production image to be used inside a programme with the melodramatic expressions. Composition seems a little unbalanced and a bit heavy on the right hand side. Lovely PP burning work, would be interested in seeing the original.

Good work here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2007 05:47:30 AM
Great costumes and makeup. A little wierd concept though. Is the potato on fire? As they are starving cold campers in the woods, any possibly link between this scene and ebay is a stretch. Other than that, a cool shot.

12/17/2007 03:24:01 AM
great staging here!!...9

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2007 12:50:38 AM
I love all of the trouble you went to and this is a fun shot but without the title, this doesn't convey "I bought it on Ebay" to me at all. I guess it's kind of obtuse anyway, huh?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2007 12:14:03 AM
Thanks for the laugh! :)
