I don't know what a drag 'quin' is, but I get the picture. In spite of the prosaic background (which you have tried your best to suppress), this is a spectacularly good portrait. The absurd costume is wonderful of course, but the expression of rapture is what makes it such a worthy photograph. All the hurts and humiliations this person's lifestyle choice routinely attract fade away (like your background) when he feels like this. It's my choice as Best in Challenge because it's real, and because it provokes some actual thought about "Life" and how it's lived out on the fringes. 10. And it's also awarded the wildly erratic Order of the Thumb:

Well...I guess it's alive - for now. I guess the colors are certainly vibrant.

This is a good candid and he's wearing a fantastic outfit. It seems a bit over-saturated though.

WEll I like the colors, and it is quite Bizzare, but that makes it fun. I also like the shallow lighting.
