Bah, I knew I was looking at the blue when I saw this! Grats Bear!

I'm going to assume you slightly cropped off your knuckle because there was a rubber band in your eye. I hate when that happens.

Superbly toned and structured. Great self portrait Robert.

Extra points for the rubber band, but the big props go to the processing. As always, you're a true artist with your pixeled brushes!

Wtg Bear. The picture was great, and each viewer, upon first sight, has no choice but to shake their and head and empathize.

The brilliance of your pp'g, Bear, is that your images are both dark AND bright, at the same time. It's magic. Congrats on the blue!

11/08/2013 12:28:34 AM
Stunning image. I suspect you could out shoot me with scales on your eyes. Congrat on the blue.

Amazing portrait with some great textures and processing. Very strong title (voted earlier)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

oh Robert! is this a rubber band by any chance?
Joke aside, this is unbearably frightening ; sheer terror
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2013 02:09:09 PM
that's scarey.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2013 11:37:01 PM
A frightening thought and well executed shot.

Robt, I am very fond of self-portraits, and think this one is staggeringly good! Superb lighting, and always, you've processed this like a champ. Just don't connect as a viewer with any real sense of fear for your phobia though. It's not that i don't have your fear (for obvious reasons), but it's not conveyed well. If I didn't know the challenge, I could easily look at this image and see a man deep in thought, not a man with a sever fear of something. Sorry for the diatribe, Bear....not intentional. Anyway, undoubtedly I'll see this on the front page, stellar shot. I'm jealous! 9.

Scarey thought - for some even more than others.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2013 03:09:28 PM
Interesting effect with the in focus/out of focus areas appearing to be PP as a circular vignette around your face Robert. Almost like Vaseline in days of old. Not drastic, subtle. The weathered look suits you you old sea dog :)

Well Robert, this is a very moving photo and title. Well done! 10
May you never loose sight.

I think your sight would be fine if ya didn't stick things in your eyes!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2013 04:55:19 AM
Damn, that's good. Front page material, well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Keep putting rubber bands in your eyes and we'll get an answer. ;)

Awesome photo btw, and I like your watch.
