I wonder how many tinfoil hat entries there will be for this challenge. I really should not have done this to my father. I am spending the week with dad at a cottage in Maine that he used to stay at with my mother. Being at the cottage meant I was restricted in equipment, settings, and a subject to shoot. Without access to my usual models (i.e., my kids) I asked dad if he would help me out. As usual, he was a good sport. I am not sure he knew what he was going to be subjected to. I think I like the way it turned out. I'm pretty sure dad was a bit shocked by the end product -- I hope he does not regret doing it. I like the textures in the foil, skin and afghan. But I think the main reason I like it is because my dad lovingly agreed to do it. So I will be anxious to see how voters react. Thanks, dad.

Looks like it was really fun to set up and take especially since it was with your dad. A wonderfully humerous representation of "Paranoia". Congrats on the Yellow!

I thought I saw the similarity, what an awesome dad you have, he should get an Oscar for this portrayal - I gave you an 8.

nice tone mapping and skin tone, good balance. fashionable 2013 version of hat. blur or lighting in background is a bit distracting as is the pattern of the material being held. main story is in the face, everything else should support the story (the hat) or not distract from it (the complex foreground).
