The model is my brother Structor. Recently we went on a photo trip and on Wednesday 16th of August we looked into the new themes on DPC and saw the good news that Steve was found and also this theme. We started immediately to take some shots for Steve and had a lot of fun that day.

I'm very pleased that both of us finished the challenge on top ten. THANKS A LOT EVERYBODY FOR GREAT COMMENTS AND VOTES.

Nice job on this one. I can definately see this as the landscape of Mars.

I like this one. Very desolate yet humorous. Dividing the background a bit more from the suject would have helped this a bit. 7

Nice Marscape. It has a realistic look and feel to it, too. Like the sky and desolate landscape. Not a bad rendition. Here is The Real Mars. Though this is not exactly what it looked like, it accurately conveys what it FELT like to me. :)
On a serious note, I learned after I got back that one of the signs of severe heat stroke is delirium where the sufferer often removes their clothes just before they go down for the count. This frequently happens to illegal immigrants from Mexico that try to cross the border in southern Arizona and die of exposure. Not a good way to go.
But I would not have recognized that sign in me. How would I know? Whenever I get around beautiful women I already get the urge to remove my clothes. LOL! - Steve

Great creative interpretation! The landscape is very Mars-esque and the hue shift of the sky obviously helps. ;) I also love that "Steve" has not a cantine, but his photo bag. :) I think a few of us DPC'ers could relate... :D
