A keen eye you have, but, you can actually see the one on the right under the blood smear the light has blown it back a little but it's there and the one on the left (left side of picture) is actually just peeking into center at the bottom there, he has weird nipples. Ribs, his don't show, simple. I take your point about the chest being a little bare, it's eye catching and could do with a little more blood smearing like lower down. Thanks for the input.

Not to worry that's cool. I like just showing my style and if it wins then great! I'm also not too into gore so I understand, but knowing how it was done doesn't freak me out as much ; )

I really wanted to do something similar but had no idea how to go about it. You really pulled it off!

Find it fascination, how you planned, designed and executed your

Thanks Vikram, and to all to all those who supported this image. I actually shot some video of how I made this which I plan to post up in the near future... if any ones interested?

Sort of sick and cool all wrapped in one excellent shot.

Really well done!

Dude, wicked shot! Very under-rated in my opinion.

probably get bombed here as shocking never goes over well, even if well done. but an interesting idea for sure

Awesome, I hope he isn't really having heart surgery :)

...and no ribs - hmmm...
11/18/2008 03:48:24 PM
This is bordering on the grotesque, yet it is oddly compelling. I keep coming back to it, and back, and back, so it is doing its job. A nine from me.

Very effective. You have more than just photography as a hobby - that's pretty good theatrical make-up....isn't it? [gulp]

how in holy heck did you accomplish this?! This is a very graphic photograph, as I am sure others are pointing out, and yet I can't stop looking. Really curios how you achieved this, adding it to favorites and my 10 for the challenge :)

Cool - but gross. DPC tends to vote gross down even on otherwise technically competent shots!

11/17/2008 06:57:39 PM
Okay - ICK!! But well done :-)

This is a disgusting photo that was very well done. It's amazing that you were able to create this. I just don't like to look at it. *grin* Sorry... 7

gruesome, you get points for creativity, but otherwise this doesn't really appeal to me. The technicals (exposure, light, DOF, etc) are good

Ew, cool. Great colors, great effects.

Sweet shot... I think had you used a border on top and bottom this would have looked more movie-ish and would have gotten you some extra bonus points.
11/17/2008 04:44:05 AM
Hmm. Ambivalent.
