If it's not his hand and he can carry a briefcase with it I'm very impressed :- )

Great shot.

So are you going to reveal whether it is or isn't Camden Tube station and whereabouts exactly you took the photo and what, if any, where the reactions of people about the area?

Well if it isn't then I'd better go to the docs as things are looking a bit gnarly!

Tutorial in walking around the public naked?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2004 03:06:46 PM
just a question. is this really in a subway? did you actually go out naked in public for this shot?
im really curious
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2004 12:45:43 PM
Yeah, I loved this one too, one of my 3 top scorers in the challenge and my favourite out of those 3.

This was one of my top favourites for this challenge, I thought it would do much better than 15th. But then again there were a lot of surprises in this challenge!
Congrats man! It's going into my favourites.

Very original. Great toning. Jacko. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2004 11:17:20 AM
excellent. The bright, light, textured yellow is really effective, as is the 'ghosting' of the naked guy. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2004 04:26:53 PM
The more I look the more I see. Very good display of one's most crazy dream of public nudity. great effects -9-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2004 12:25:22 PM
Not only do you get the prize for having the biggest balls (which we could confirm with just a slight tilt of the camera), but this is a really nicely done photograph. I love the colors, the angle, and the motion blur. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2004 03:09:04 AM
Great, artistic, graphic, bloody good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2004 12:37:31 AM
cleverly done and original idea I like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2004 03:58:26 PM
I bet you didn't do this during rush hour , LOL. Creative idea and funny, still wearing black socks, must obey to City standards. The right hand carrying the briefcase should have been placed differently, or was this done on purpose. Also strange to see the line of the hand in focus and the rest blurred, was it PS effect ? Anyway, a good result.

Setzler Comment:

Some general ratings (1-10): These are some elements that I look for in great photographs, in no specific order…

Visual Appeal: 10
Subject Appeal: 8
Compositional Appeal: 6
Effective use of color/bw: 10
Creativity: 10
Theme/Storytelling qualities: 10
Title: 5

Additional Comments:

This is a great theme shot for this challenge. The camera tilt adds some nice impact for this photo. I think the impact may be even stronger with a little wider view including the feet. The motion is theme here and the feet providing that motion are missing.... Still a great shot....

Would love to know how you were able to do this photo in a public train station!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 09:07:17 AM
streakers! lol
very nicely executed.. i can feel the tension from walking naked to the subway! People dream about stuff like this..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 09:05:10 AM
Now THIS must have taken some guts to pull off. Good job. Love the motion blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 11:04:48 PM
Great pic! ... was the position of the right hand intentional? I wonder if anyone else sees what I'm seeing...oh the watch is a little distracting but I like the socks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 10:34:56 PM
daring. I love this. especially the dark sox, or boots.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 11:44:24 AM
What a wonderful whimsical photo. I am sure I have stood exactly where you stood and looked at exactly that underground sign. But never with your model present. Great photo. Great idea. great execution. Among my top picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 08:51:48 AM
Did you actually walk naked in the train station? Well done photo, gutsy move.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 08:30:56 AM
I really like this - it is so well done. The sepia hue really works. [7]
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 07:52:23 AM
Superb shot (john?)

Funny, provocative, odd, unique, thought-out - all the things we never see on DPC.

The angle is a little too much for my tastes, whilst i like the angle i would have it a little less bent. Motion blur is spot on.

The textures really stand out on this shot which is my favorite part, even the sign has a nice wear and tear feel to it.

A 10 from me and hopefully a top ten place for you.

Certianly a daring picture. Cool concept. 8

loved it (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 04:51:01 PM
I do really like this. It talks to me about "care in the community" Tube travellers and of the eccentricity of my fellow Brits. I like the texture of the brick work, I like the tilted crop and I like seeing through the motion blur of the body to the tube sign behind. On of my top 3 this challenge.

very artistic, nice effect, good background and lighting.

08/23/2004 12:08:47 PM
I really like your contrast! You did a good job on portraying movement too with the blur and camera tilt. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 11:17:00 AM
LOL.
Dying to hear how this was done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 11:14:00 AM
Great idea and welll handled. I like the diagonal placement and the way you've manipulated the colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 11:12:53 AM
I hope we get to hear the story of how and when you shot this! Great composition - it looks like a lot of thought and effort went into it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:47:07 AM
very British sense of humour ! I like the colour coordination, too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:30:27 AM
Excellent shot, I like this a lot. I'm curious to see how this was done... off camera rear curtain flash? Double exposure? Whatever the technique, it works well. Effective high-contrast texture on wall, and the image of a man dressed only in socks with a tube map containing stops for the city works well as a piece of stock art. Good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:21:10 AM

classy image.. one of the best. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 02:45:06 AM
I like this a lot, fantastic work! Also my hat off to you for being so courageous, well your model anyway :) Whenever I am in London and in the underground it is always so crowded there! Did you pull many strange looks?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:27:44 AM
nice creative concept, artistic...

are you British? it just conveys "British" to me... *LOL*

So far the only 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:24:06 AM
I would've titled it something like "I had that dream again..." You know, where you go to work/school and forget to get dressed.

Nice photo. I like the gritty sepia tones in the bricks, and the man is blurred just right. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:47:09 AM
the right hand seems to be in a very 'intersting' place... almost seems to be 'representing' something.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:34:28 AM
Dang!!! That's funny!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:11:42 AM
