Ha what a fun and crazy picture. It's funny, my husband just let my baby with the beautiful hair get a mohawk - and I'm not too happy about it. These look much better than what he is sporting. Is it possible to give someone a mohawk while they sleep?

Love the dark tone and the background is very cool!

Judi- I think there is a medicine to clear those spots up...

Great photo! Love the expressions, the lighting and the processing.

I don't know if the word 'disturbing' is right or not? I'll give you marks for creativity though! And I like how you slipped in the Harry Potter t-shirt...

Great shot - good contrast - remind me not annoy the family! Would have been even better if the guy on the right moved a little to balance the photo.

Hmmmmmm. OK. some good things with this image and a couple of tiny niggles. Lets start with the niggles.

The t-shirts - I would of loved to see plain black here, the logos from the `triumph` tee and the `Harry Potter` Tee are quite distracting, the little guy on the left has his coverd, so not as distracting. Thats all though.. Oh, and maybe lining up the eyes on all the models, but I am being pedantic now. ignore me..

Now, I like the composition, not cropped too tightly or too much space left around the edges. The colour is great, quite dark and moody but works with the backdrop. Lighting is good and not just slapped into the scene, a bit of though has been put in there.. The concept of the photo as a whole works well. The title compliments the shot here, it doesnt drive it.

overall a good solid shot, maybe not a ribbon winner, but certainly a top ten (if there is any justice). I am gonna drop you an 8 here, would of been a 9 but finding those tee's a bit distracting still. well done!!

Judi: do these three men belong to you? I noticed your daughter in the photo with you it is so much fun to work with your family and to develop an interest in an art like photography is great both in front and behind the camera.

Cool concept, and yes, I understand that dark fits the concept. Still, the three dark t-shirts melt into one big lump. But otherwise, it's cool (8)
