I like the idea! But the bottom is very dark and the background not very appealing. Still, it's a nice image and I prefer this above your more "standard" outtake.

thanks Limbri and everyone that took the time to comment. i had a feeling it wouldnt do too well but i just laugh everytime i think of the title and how it goes along with the picture, and how the picture came out too of course.

here's an out take of my alternative entry. wouldve done better but probably not much higher than mid 5's since it's a bit soft.

Interesting subject, I like the colors a lot as well as the composition. I feel like it's missing something, but I can't put my finger on it. I think the patch of skin that I see as the focus isn't sharp enough perhaps?

The photo is nice but the title is phenominal.
