Well this was a last minute idea(as usual) but I was happy with how it came out. Yes thats me with the drill and no the hole was not cut with the drill but rather with a jigsaw which is why its not perfectly round... I tried it with my biggest bit, the 1" that in the picture, but it just didn't work so I grabbed my jigsaw and made it bigger. This wasn't actually my favorite crop but I liked the lighting the best so here it goes. Hope it does well!

The color is extremely bland. I generally like atonality, but this one just have enough variants to pop for me.

I can relate to that. I just had my husband to the doctor coz he drilled under the trailer with only glasses on, and got stuff in his eye.

For me, the humor in your photo is it's strongest point.

Something's a bit off with the light here I feel but I like the shot and the idea.

Not to sound emasculating or anything, but that looks like an awful big hole for that drill.

Good compositon and focus but the tones look a little waxy. still a good image though. 7/10
