I suspect a lot of people will pick this song, and I predict they will have a slicker result. I have no experience with this type of thing and started taking the pics about an hour and a half before deadline. It is way too simple a setup and crude processing to do well in an expert challenge (or any challenge). But it's not about winning, right? It's about trying new things and learning. It was fun. Thanks to my son -- his first time being my model/victim. I think it might get killed in voting.

My daughter is usually my model, but this time my son got lucky. I found a rope and bucket in the garage, and stole a roll of toilet paper from the bathroom. A little lighter fluid and a match and we were ready to go. We had no cowboy boots, but I should have found some alternative to the flip flops. We had fun, but my wife was worried the bucket would come off and set fire to a neighbor's house.

Nice, although the man gets more attention here than the ring of fire.

I like how you used the rope for the ring of fire. For me this shot seems out of place. It looks like you are in a fenced in back yard and you have some "cowboy" stuff on then you have flip flops and sunglasses at night. Sorry it just doesn't seem to flow well for me. Best of luck.

i am not so certain about those sandals. I think the whole shot may be a bit blown out as well. I like the subglasses and hat though:-)
