Not original, but maybe silly enough for a smile. And yes, I did stick a pushpin in my thumb. Just far enough to stand up if I balanced it right.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, levels, converted to duotone, dodged/burnt pin and burnt indentation in my thumb, increased contrast, decreased noise, hand-sharpened pin, added border, resized, 2nd layer (sharpened, erased jaggies, merged).

See, now this is why candy bars have instructions. You're supposed to push from the other side. :)

Another clever image completely misinterpreted by this reviewer when the first rating run through was completed. On comment review, the humor jumped out and reasserted itself positively. This is one of those images that require some thought when viewing to catch the author's intent. Excellant DOF control, sharp and crip where needed, this was originally rated a seven and has been uprated to a 9. A technical and artistic success.

Ouch! You're obviously trying to stress a point here. Job done! Good shot.
