As some will have guessed, I got this idea from the movie "Idiocracy". The Academy Award winner "ASS" was the best selling movie for 4 years running and had won 8 Academy Awards including best screen play. It was just a dudes ass on the screen! For 90min! Hehe ... Great movie, Idiocracy that is :)

Anyhow this particular challenge really was a challenge for me. Not the editing aspects but the shooting aspects. I had to talk my roommate into standing naked in front of my camera while I, a dude, took photos of his naked ass. It took him a while to come around but he finally agreed and in the end it was totally not an issue.

I am happy with this photo (poster) but I am going to bet most people will never get it and vote it down for the content, both the image and the language.

Estimated score = 5.2
Dream score = 6.3

Editing was fairly simple. I used CS2 with the Silver Efex plug-in to do make the photo b&w. The hardest part was the text, both in coming up with it and making it look like a movie poster. I had to shop around for fonts quite a bit.

I am glad some got it and liked it. This is a "Love It or Hate It" image and as such, I am not surprised with the voting.

If you have not watched the movie "Idiocracy", check it out and have a laugh!

This is still one of the best. I loved it. Great job. What a joke that the voters didn't like a guy's ass as a poster. LOL Got a 10 from me. It's great.

I wrote a long, glowing comment about this pic and hit button at rollover... Anyway, you nailed the challenge and made me laugh. This is one of the best of the challenge and I hope (or hope not) to see it on the front page at rollover.
