So I had this idea very last minute and I had a hard time finding the materials that I needed. I had the Santa shirt from a previous Halloween costume but do you think I could find green fur? No. So I ended up going to Wal-Mart and I bought a green fur rug that was the perfect colour. I just trimmed a bit of the fur off here and there and glued it on my hand with spirit gum. To my amazement, it turned out pretty good and I am very happy with the end result! Thanks everyone for your votes and comments!

What a fantastic photo! Wonderful concept, brilliantly executed. If I were you, I would definitely make Christmas cards from this image and sell them. I know I would buy them!

A very nice poster effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Aside from the red spot at bottom this is really just perfect. One of my top picks and I have a feeling that it'll be a top pick for a lot of people.

Nice lighting and idea. I like th comp and the negative space.

Excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely taken. I like the simple composition and bold colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2007 09:36:39 AM
I like this a lot. At first I thought the red below the ornament was a reflection but now I see it's probably the broken bit. I think the composition would be stronger if that were cropped out, but that's just because I'm easily confused.

Love this shot. One of my faveorites. Very well done.

05/08/2007 08:19:43 PM
Don't know where you got the costume but awesome! This would be so much better though with some scenery instead of a plain background. I know a Christmas tree isn't readily available this time of your but perhaps a fireplace. I dunno, I just feel you had a really great advantage with the costume but didn't take it where you could have.

Love the saturated colors on the black background. Shame the ball isn't blue then you'd have a RGB. ;) I believe this will top ten easily.
