I managed to get my dad into this outfit :) and generally the shots were quite boring, but this one turned out ok after postprocessing, so i figured I'd send it in :)

Tons of layers, this and that, multiplying, squeezing up some greens and make a glow around the peas to make the gold effect.

Very cool, and uniquely interesting shot. Like the green around the mouth, and the gritty but glowing feel to the shot.

Fantastic. What a great image!

I think the green "glow" around his mouth tells the tale of some sloppy selecting. Other than that, I like it...especially the graininess.

Great, one of my favorites in the challenge! Love the contrast, light, the noisy style and the man, looking like one of the blues brothers! 9

Looks like goodman work. ;^) Nice image, better processing! You've worked this over quite nicely, that is if you're a grunge look fan. I like how you've made the green peas pop with the other muted tones. I'd say 'Good luck in the challenge', but don't think you really need it. ;^)

I like the image. I like how his mouth is turning green, almost a "You are what you eat", meaning.

Normally I don't like grainyness but that is what makes this picture.

That would be very effective vedgetables ad :). Real nice how you used burn tool.

Not sure I like the prcessing on this one. seems noisy. the green glow around the mouth is where you lose me. intersting take on the challenge though.

love the filter and the colors!

ROFL! Ignoring the processing for a second, the shot is priceless - Love the huge volume of peas being stuffed in to the hard man mouth there! Personally I'm not a huge fan of the grunge look and I'm not sure I like it's application here - the green from the peas seems to be blurred all around the skin of the mouth and there are really heavy halos around the edges of the hat, sunglasses etc. The original photograph itself I like!

I don't know how you did it. I don't have any idea of the possible meaning behind the photo. I just know that I LOVE THIS SHOT!! 10+

In a contest shooting "peas" I think this is one of the best ideas. The picture is funny, well captured and the pp is great. Good luck to you - 9
