Thanks to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Insomniac for the title idea, I could just find things with the word Hate on it :P


Very simple, laid down on the ground, and then asked someone to stomp my head to the ground :)

Editing:
Topaz adjust (some desaturation, increased local contrast and more contrast areas, more definition).

Post Challenge

YEAH!! This was way beyond imaginable, never thought of getting a blue, with the amount of good photographers here!

Thank you so much for all your comments, it was so nice to see the voting phase on this one. And yes, I'm still scraping some mud of my hair.
As for one comment, the dirt inside my mouth was not dirt, it was ketchup (didn't do much good anyway).

I had been planning to photograph this exact scene for a while now... not for a challenge, but to reflect one of my favourite quotes from Orwell's 1984:

"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - for ever"

Brilliant job on the photo, and congrats on the blue.

Way too interesting. It looks a bit staged and oversharpened but you can't pull your eyes away, like a car wreck. Congrats.

Man, congratulations on the blue and the PB. Really well deserved, especially since I know just how cold it was that day! Not a bad couple of weeks for photographers from our little country, huh? :-)

Parabéns e continuação de boas fotos.

Love the colors and the shapness. Is this Topaz? I would love to here your PP steps on this one.

This is striking, gritty and seriously compelling. You can actually feel his pain just by looking at the photo. It seems a little over sharpened, but that may actually add to the overall look of the image. Great model and a wonderful capture.

Stupid, over processed image ... but still I'm drawn to it. The original image is good. The processing is good, if not to my liking. I'm not sure why I like it, but bless me, I do. Good work!

A bit extreme on the tonemapping but it just what makes the picture.
10*.

Pretty intense, both in subject and in processing. I think you were very successful in achieving the look you were after, and the execution is excellent.

That's one dedicated model.
