Hi guys,

I need some advice and there’s nobody awake here so I immediately thought of all my bubble friends..

I wanted to come up with an ‘alternate’ self portrait for a comp in a magazine. I’d like to know what you guys think of this? Can you even tell I’m in a dryer??

Any input would be really appreciated. Please tell me if you think it sucks….I might cry at first, but I’ll get over it….eventually. Promise I won’t hold a grudge if you don’t like it.. =-)

Thanks in advance everyone.

EDIT: I ended up winning the comp with this image and got a Sony A200 twin lens kit. Thanks for the advice everyone ;0)

    Haha! Will you come out with a big afro if we set it to “Fluff & Fold”? Have to say that this is pretty damn good.. a great comedic self portrait.. I take it a bit of comedy was what you were after… if not, then I’m sorry! Love the pressed up against glass look.
    If you want criticism then I would just say that there are 2 white smudges on the left that bug me a little.. could they be removed? Patch Tool?
    Nice to see you by the way!

  • Thanks, Paul. Yeah…intended to be funny – didn’t think I could pull off a serious one so I went for the comedic one instead! Yep, the smudges are annoying me too so I’m getting rid of them.
    I was just thinking about cropping the top off to the top of the door and just having me stuck inside…do you think that would work or do the buttons give more context?

    Wow! At first I was afraid, then went on to read your description. Yes you can definitely tell that you are in a dryer and it is a really cool image however the pic of you probably doesn’t do you any justice. It definitely does suit the idea though. Well done!!!
