Alright, I got many reactions out of this shot which was pretty much expected from my end. LoL
I knew people were gonna either love it, or hate it. It did exactly what I wanted it to do, which was, getting a reaction out of people. ;)

I had many more eyecandy shots but I chose this one because I figured it would get attention :) It sure did. It was the highest commented shot so far that I have had during a challenge lol

Thanks everyone for voting, even if you didnt like it.

Here are some outtakes of shots that I would have selected instead if I didnt have this one.

This is utterly and completely unique ;-) Maybe you can go back and see if she'll do it again for the Green* challenge!

LOL! Whilst you really can't spend too much time dwelling on what the Ape is drinking this is sooo funny! Looks like the Ape knows exactly what to do to 'impress' the crowd! Thanks for sharing ;o)

That is just too funny. What a catch. Most people can spend their entire lives going to zoos and never see this, and you not only see it, take a photo of it, but also enter it ina challenge. Classic! Overall a great photo that met its objective, and that is to get a reaction out of peeople, and in the end isn't that what photos are for?

I gave this an 8 for what it's worth. I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' mpeters - technically this shot is spot on. To mark it below a 5 is harsh. Lighten up DPC!

Where's the love DPC? Everything about this photo is good except the subject matter. But I guess it is all a matter of personal taste.

Now I can truly say that I have seen everything. Very funny. Obviously you can't set this shot up and have to move quickly, but it would have been nice if the piece of wood on the left wasnt't there. Also the level adjustments have burne her but and aourng her mouth and eyes. Good Luck. 6.

01/21/2008 01:20:44 PM
I'm not sure if you are attempting to amuse or disgust the challenge viewers!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2008 12:41:46 PM
NO WAY!! Okay - this is a great capture but also disgusting all at the same time... way to evoke a response from someone viewing your shot - you surely grabbed my attention!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2008 11:48:29 AM

Eeeeeewwwww... Funny, but WRONG.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2008 01:23:19 AM
yep that is pretty disgusting:) honestly would be pretty good if it weren't for that. just can't give more than 5 for an animal pissing in its own mouth though. good luck with some of the even more conservative voters.
