My clamebute fail to HungarianMoustache. Well, actually a 1/2 clamebute to Adam's remarkable photo of May 18. In a nutshell, the ultimate in hubris is trying to do a photo like the talented and original H.M. I attempted to do what he did, only thinking I'd use a "chalkdog" instead of a cuckoo clock to give it my own personal stamp. However, try as I might I coudn't figure out how he did the photo. I had ideas about it, but none of them worked. Frustratedly I turned to photoshopping, but in the midst of that I thought, no, this isn't how I should be doing this. So, here's my initial from the camera half-shot, and here's to Adam, and his perpetually beautiful photo surprises. It was due to HungarianMoustache that I was talked into my very first Moustache May participation and it's probably due to him that I still have a moustache this very day. Thanks, Adam! (and looking forward to seeing you and Annie soon as you head through St. Louis.)

Clame below for my ultimate photoshopped pic.
And Clame below for Adam's amazing photo.

I love both of your images, but you are correct. Even to attempt a hungarianmoustache image is brave. He is a master, but you are as well. You've produced nothing but quality images since your first days here, and I feel fortunate to have seen them. Thanks for being awesome.

Works wonderfully in both versions- your moustaches and the chalkdog's cheeks make a truly delicious line of beauty

Yeah, I can imagine how clamebuting HungarianMoustache would indeed be a daunting task. However, I think you got the spirit right on.

I, too, attempted a HungarianMoustache tribute on the first clamebute day. It's harder than it looks! He makes those shots look simple but they are anything but that! This looks great, Chalkdog. Great work!

This is such a good looking shot for so many reasons. Color, composition, your excellent moustache, etc etc etc

You're awesome!
