Congratulations oskar :)

Working with Basic Editing, the balance between the shadows/highlights in the background is excellent. Really great job with the lighting.

Clearly a stand out image. I saw Blue on this the moment the image came up. The processing, lighting, positioning, and perspective were just about perfect.

I still can't get over how 9 people saw to vote below a 4!

Please put me out my misery Oskar and tell me what your thinking was behind this shot as i havent a clue as to where this fit in an alternative medicine challenge.
Its a stunning picture but your thinking way "Out the Box" on this one. lol
Congrats anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 06:26:15 AM
It´s so cool, 2 times model and both time a Blue one, whuuppie
I´m probability the best model in the world :D Just kidding, great job oskar. It´s true the idea is from me but the Oskar use his way of postprogressing and that is also big part of the final result

Are you guys freaking kidding me !!!

I went through this week submission and decided that I didn't stand a chance, like usually. I saw a bunch of really good work

I see in the comments that many of you like it mostly because of the idea, as I said in the description the idea came from a friend of mine, Russi (Rúnar Ninja) which asked me to bring the tool to the studio. He decided to participate in the Red challenge in stead and gave the chance of using his idea.

This ( //farm1.static.flickr.com/184/413091794_afd607f253_o.jpg ) would have been my other entry for the challenge, as you all can see, a pretty dull idea.

So HUUUUGE thanks to him, again.

And so many hugs and kisses to you. Haven't done anything nice on this site for years and this is clearly what I need to be motivated for few more !

Im going out celebrating !

This is very nice, great capture I believe. Really gives me a feel for your meaning. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really cool photo, but for a challenge called alternative medicine, I'm looking for something based in reality, not fantasy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2007 07:25:47 PM
Great idea and even better execution. Those of us with creaky joints can especially appreciate it. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2007 06:28:53 PM
My favourite picture from the beginning. Excellent detail, great contrast and perfect composition. Very creative idea. The contrast between hard tool and softness of the body is very appealing. I hope it will ribbon. 10.

03/10/2007 06:19:52 PM
sometimes there are some ideas that are very near to the madness but there is also the madness of the votes :) 10!

this isn't too different from what orthopedic surgeons really do in the operating room at times. great image and gets the point of the contest across to the viewer. -10-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 07:32:56 AM
If you saw this pic in a postcard stand in the street would you even think about Alternative Medicine?
03/07/2007 03:09:38 AM
Great photo, even though as someone with dodgy knees it made me wince somewhat. Love the fact that even though its low key you have maintained a great crispness
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 02:48:17 AM
great shot, i like this and the B&W also helps 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 12:47:35 AM
This is a really cool picture but IMO it doesn't really fit the challenge, i understand the twist you were taking but it just doesn't seem to quite fit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 12:25:30 AM
Nice thinking and equally well execution... my 10
