Was lucky enough to have someone graciously volunteer their butt to be covered with a mud mask, a pore-refining mask, and a few cacti :)

The background is just part of a sunset on a computer screen.

Great job!!!!!

A great idea, if not a little blunt. The lighting and coloring are actually very good.

Great texture here makes the shot work although the figures don't really "fit" into the scene all that well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice colors & texture - may I suggest an alternate title, "Crusted Butte, CO"? << 8 >>

At least it wasn't Butt Volcano. Creative. I don't want to hear about the set up though...

Creative and wonderfully executed composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2008 06:10:50 PM
Certainly the most involving in the pack

looks like a motivational poster
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice idea, but a little more lighting would have been better. Everything gets a bit lost in the dark.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2008 09:55:13 PM
LOL! I like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2008 09:53:11 PM
My pick for the winner and the only 10 I handed out. Great job - it really caught my eye. The small, thumbnail version looks very, very realistic. I wonder why that one Cowboy passed out? Probably vapors seeping up from Butt Canyon! Ha ha, couldn't help myself - pardon me. Anyway, great work and good luck to ya!

Now just what the heck is happening here? They're not all going to make it, are they? Sad... so sad... :D
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Imagine if you really had saguaro cacti sticking out of the top of your butt? That would really hurt. Must give you kudos for great creativity here...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 10:16:57 AM
Nicely done! Very funny, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 08:50:42 AM
You went to a lot of trouble to make this shot. I am impressed with you. Well done 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 08:37:14 AM
I'm frightened to ask if this is a butt ;-) Whatever it is, I think it would have looked better without the plastic thingys on it. Nice colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 06:12:44 AM
I ve seen some B/W's in a thread that were also good! Were made by you?
04/09/2008 10:45:19 PM

Cute idea. Well executed.

04/09/2008 02:47:11 PM
Oh my!! Who let you cover their body in clay and then let it harden? Someone very patient!!! This is a great setup, excellent lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 12:44:32 PM
LOL top ten for sure and I hope your model made you scrub off the dried clay afterwards! 9

Weird, but interesting. I like the canyon texture and lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 09:58:53 AM
The guy in the middle might not make it. Must carry on.
Is that a real bum?

OMG! Amazing concept, lighting, effort, and play on words.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 07:23:31 AM
I hope that behind is a statue, otherwise you must buy them some mosturiser. The scene is a bit sad with the 2 dying/dead men? =(

04/09/2008 01:14:29 AM
this would have been quite good with better lighting and focus. 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 01:07:57 AM
i guess im more of a minimalist but i think it would have been better without the people and maybe with only one or two cacti. still good nevertheless.

It doesn't get any better than this. :) 10
