I can only imagine the scene that was caused by getting this shot just right! Very funny, and looks like fun to have taken.

Nice. Looks like medium format film.

Great title. Like the blurred background, but would prefer a little more DOF to get the hand sharper, in addition to his already sharp face.

Good idea. Maybe this would have been better in colour, as I feel his head and hand don't jump out of the photo enough. There is a lot of grey here, so that the skin tone grey merges with the background a little too much.

Other than that, a well composed image for the challenge

Voted earlier, just coming back to comment. I immediately hear/think the word stop when I look at this. However, I wish either all of the guy or at least his hand was in focus. The hand, to me, is what is saying the word the stop. Personally, I feel the whistle is more of a sound/noise than actual language. 6

Stopologist lol great title. I think the duotone works very well here and removes any distraction from the background.
