There wasn't much time to pull this together as we've been out all day. I don't expect too much on this one, but as the primary peep geek on this site, I couldn't not enter.

Unfortunately, as I was working on this one, I realized that I typically use way too much photoshop on my regular peep shots, and can't get where I want to go with even advanced editing.
Who knew I'd be looking for expert editing rules - sheesh, I'm still an amateur.

Shot with my el-cheapo ebay softbox.

I'll be happy with a 5.5

Good to see that you remain in touch with all things perverted peep!!

The photo made me laugh at once and I knew of only one genius that could have taken it

See all that effort we put into the sheep herders and all we needed to do was take flashing peeps to get our tops score!!

Many congratulations on the placement and the fact that that shot is going to be with you for a long long time

Hehe, I knew this was you! I recognize that coat style. I meant to come back and bump up a bunch of scores, but got distracted. Oh, well (I don't think my "8" hurt you, though). :-)

This is either from the Peep Master or an imitator. Cracks me up how mesmerized the aliens are. Cute!
