The expression on your face says it all. I would love to have you modelling in front of my camera. Congrats! Well deserved ribbon.

I like the angle, making the head look larger, and the halo around the head - emphasizes things nicely, I think. Also, I really love how the background makes this look *real*, not a studio shot. And of course that expression... it says "I love you, really, but whyyyy?" and that's just so awesome.

oh my GOd he looks just like dave chappelle
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2008 03:40:48 PM
Sooooo well-deserved :D

For me, the touch that "made" it is that the cord is still wrapped, showing you didn't totally invent this. It may not be YOUR hairdryer, but at least it IS someone's new gift :)

Dude! That's right up there with Shakespeare's Comb for the Bald Man, "Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow!" :}

Nice angle and point well made.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2007 06:47:24 AM
Cute, and extremely well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2007 03:31:07 AM
Great facial expression and the use of a deep DOF is very functional here. I am not too fond of the POV though. The high angle makes the head look extra large. Furthermore, there seems to be a halo around the head.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2007 09:39:32 PM
:) ! !

I love that bewildered expression! Sorry about the gift, but hopefully you will get a great score out of the deal :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2007 07:15:58 PM
Good idea and well photographed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2007 09:28:40 PM
Hilarous!

haha! I hope people get this...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2007 06:41:43 PM
BAHAHAHA! Best in show so far my friend. Well done! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2007 03:43:02 PM
I like the idea and the composure (tree, model's pose, colored wall). Keeping the cord out of the image would by my only suggestion. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2007 03:16:17 PM
Haahaa. I love it. I have the same hair style!

Um... you can always use it on um... leg hair. ROFL

That is hilarious.
