This image seems surreal. I've had to visit it several times and each time I cannot believe it is a photograph. Excellent across the board.

Very nicely done! I gave ya a 9 on this one... a great photo, but I thought the cigar was a little inappropriate for a mug shot (though I understand WHY you did it). Congrats on the new 2nd best. Those don't come along very often with our mileage. ;-)

Really cool looking. I think you could have done without the vignette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 09:46:15 PM
This is a really nice shot. Love the colors and contrast. But you made him look "good!" I think you were supposed to make him look unflattering.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 03:56:20 PM
Beautiful shot

03/28/2008 01:30:30 PM

A very creative take on the subject, excellent detail, I just don't think the vignette adds to the shot. -7

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 10:04:11 PM
most of the other mugshots look the same, but you came up with a new jux. that makes for a more interesting picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 07:33:51 PM
Outstanding 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 05:39:33 PM
My only 10 - this is great. The lens makes it POP, the colors are crisp, the focus is perfect and the model did a GREAT job. ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 01:25:35 PM
10!! Excellent job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 08:52:35 AM
Entirely too good to be an actual mug shot, and by far the most technically superior entry in the challenge. I could see this in a top-rate magazine, and in fact is better than some of the stuff in magazines these days. Most likely a blue.

03/25/2008 08:50:22 AM
Works for me.......

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2008 08:34:02 AM
Nice shot. I could live without the vignette though - it wouldn't be on a mug shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2008 12:17:12 AM
In a real mug shot, you couldn't wear a hat or have a cigar. ROFL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2008 12:15:45 AM
this shot has to be blue, my only 10, everything about the picture is just perfect.
