you ever have one of those images where you just don't know?
Honestly. it wasn't a very good photo before the editing. making it a selective desat really made the image work.

It was put together real fast, (obviously, speed challenge) and it really wasn't that good! So... I mage it BW and fixed it up some, then I messed with some desat and got this!

Yeah, the title is a little bit, but I was undecided, and so was my model. Gives it a 3d aspect, no?

Thanks for the coments :D

Great dilemmas. Nice poses. The most basic dilemmas and you've captured it very well. I don't mind the softness and the slight overexposure adds to the effect.

pretty good use of the desat trick... did you select specific areas? as for her, SPANK!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The lighting and desat really enhance the impact of this image. The composition works well too. The urban punk feel works really well placed against the classical vibe created by the stone pillar. This image has a lot of character.

comical, i love the concept and feel it fits the challenge well. one of my top 3

Great image, I really like both character's expressions. I gave the image a 9.

I think just "Beer or babe" would have been a better title. The selective B&W, I feel, is over used, but it really adds to your image. I just think the observer doesn't need the info in the title it will become obvious when viewing the image.

Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2004 09:32:32 AM
Get the beer and than the babe. You don't have to be undecided!!! No one cares about B&W or colour! One of the best by now! 8

Very creative. 8

Great capture, the lighting is fantastic. The selective desat is VERY effective, especially with the red and leaving in the tats. 10

It's obviously technically perfect with no real area of discussion, compo wise, it's also very apealling, I would not have used the pillar to support the 6pack just beacause of its roman design vs a Brit vibe. The selective desat is very cool since it brings our attention towards the important areas of the image. The acting on the part of the male really makes this shot work, I can really feel is inner turmoil! The only little thing I'd have tried to work on, was to try and find a posture which would have hidden the females tummy. This is a really great shot and fully deserving of the 10 I have given it.

Great balance between B&w contrast ratios and colors...not an easy thing to do.

Let's just keep it simple, beer and b/w ;-) Good idea and job. 8
