    I was surprised this ranked so high, not an 'attractive' shot. Thank goodness there is no rule that says an entry has to be attractive or pretty. It was my first pick from the start. Congrats!

    Thank you all for the lovely comments, congrats and votes :-) . I thought this would be a 'Marmite' photo and not be everyone's cup of tea, but I felt it was better to provoke some emotion in people, good or bad, rather than no emotion at all. It's good to have a bit of fun sometimes :-) .

The 'Main' in this challenge was one of those strange times where nobody thought the winning photo should win or the second photo should come second. The next photo only got one third place too!

    Phew! Creatively graphic and very effective!

    In addition to the smell coming through, I get the feeling that the subject is a bit perturbed by what he is smelling! Focus, lighting and the filled frame really bring out the appropriateness for the theme. In my favs.

    This just reeks of bad odour. Well taken.

    Excellent! - Well composed, well photographed and well presented in B&W. You gave me a good laugh.

    Eeuk, what a way to capture a theme, but you've done it very well.
B+W was a good choice too. In my TT.

    Clever concept that that definitely communicates the theme, albeit somewhat unpleasantly. Extra 'bad pun' points for the title.

    A truly scary photo - b&w a great choice. There is no escaping the subject. Great title.

I'm glad I made you LOL cookiejar. That was the aim :-) .

forkcandles - My underarm was just wetted with water on a tissue. The shine on my face is real as we were having a heatwave at the time!

    Not the most appealing image; however, it certainly conveys the theme.

    Terrific subject and expression. Made me lol. Absolutely says smell! I like the choice of black and white.

    Thanks for the comments both....I think ;-) .

Sorry to gross you out jomari!

I've never seen the film I'm afraid but I'll keep my eye out for a good reaction if I ever do :-) .

    I can scarcely bear to look at this, but it does meet the challenge well and is technically well done. So into my tt it goes.

    if this had been more like the reaction of kevin kline in 'a fish called wanda', you would have got my vote. not sure where i'm going to place this one. but it sure does capture the theme.
