This is definitely one I would keep away from had it not been for the olympics & the better than average side challenges.

So off I went to buy a woody, the first guy thought I wanted Viagra... very funny.

I have no idea what to do with a woody *insert funny comment here*

I hope this does well for the team .. It is a reflection of how I felt trying to think of an idea. I sat down on the roadside with my head in my hand, then this image was born. you see, it's actually ME. same hair style just slimmer.

est score 6.1
dream score - 6.8 - I want to be the number 1 on the Sigma 24mm page.

It's fun to watch creative people push themselves - and I love your notes on this. :-) 'Grats on the excellent score and placement! (I gave you an 8 by the way - one of the stronger emotive shots in the challenge and there's always the B&W factor in my vote...)

Hey, Marac. Bet you're glad you went in for this one ;-) It's really an excellent image and the "distraught" feeling comes over extremely well.
