The camera IR remote can be seen in my left hand.
The "Electreat Mechanical Heart" quack medical device was patented in 1928 and was alleged to cure almost any malady. The device appears to be functional with an output of about 300V under normal (human) load. I believe it could be dangerous!

I get the biggest kick out of web-photo-critics.

Your picture is GREAT! So what if there is a wrinkle, piece of dust, shadow ect. Capture the "Moment". Thats exactly what you did, and this moment is priceless!

And just to make one more comment:

I have a friend who thinks his photography is second to none. He is physically unable to take a photograph without Photoshopping it to death. He has a "Gallery" of his pictures (over 20) in our town cafe, with a biography of how he is a "20 time photography award winner". His "awards" are all from sites like this.

He has yet to sell even one picture.
'Nuff said.

This is a fantastic image. Gives me the feeling he is sitting in an old military tent, and is supposed to do something that only the military would allow L()L. Very nice editing on this shot the models expression tells it all very nice.

Great shot :-) Cute concept, and done well. A very good 'humor' shot. Gave me a good smile.

Haha cool, just to be nitpicky though, it would have been good to iron out the creases in the curtain in the background, also the lighting on his face is a bit harsh, I love the expression though this great.
