As always from you, an incredible image. A little over focused but NOT bad. It blows me away in many ways.

I like the PP, adds to mystery,could you list your steps on you you did this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2007 02:44:30 AM
I think the photo would've been a lot better without all that postprocessing. it's no photo anymore. A shame really, it doesn't need all that pp.

Congrats on 6th. Curious, did you resize using bicubic sharper? I wonder if bicubic smoother would have help control some of that pixelation from that backlighting.

very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2007 08:34:41 PM
Very interesting, unfortunately looks like a drawing rather than a photo due to the processing. 6

Great picture. Well performed (a little weird pp, but works here though...)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2007 11:28:02 PM
Great work! I vote a perfect 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2007 05:42:03 PM
this looks like a painting. How did you get that effect??? nice - 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2007 11:06:38 AM
An eye catching perfect shot, but IMO the face has looks to have been edited to a point of making the image look unreal and more like a poster than a photograph. I am having a hard time scoring it.......
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2007 12:27:44 PM
ooo, how did you do this PP? it's really nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2007 12:20:30 AM
processed within an inch of it's life - looks like Joey's work to me - so if you're not him - WTG on learning a cool style. Too much of an illustrated look for a photo contest for my taste however. 6

I find the bright spot to be very distracting to an otherwise well executed and processed picture. Would have rated it higher with out the glare.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/20/2007 07:20:25 PM
It is really too dark to see the colors. Turning up the brightness, it shows a little bit that this is good. I hope this is doing well. Good luck.

03/20/2007 05:10:04 PM
very good. A great composition and clever use of edge lighting.10

03/20/2007 12:40:22 PM
Fantastic! So mysterious, with great tones. The light with the outline of the arms is a great touch. Very well done.

High impact. Big coolness factor. Heavy processing, but not blaringly overdone. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 07:10:28 PM
dramatic lighting. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 07:09:21 PM
Totally awesome image. Love the feel of it and that bit of light adds so much. Great job, hope to see this on the front page.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 05:38:01 PM
looks like an album cover. I like the backlighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The guy looks plastic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 03:32:57 PM
Nice creative animated look. the light flare effect is interesting but a bit overdone, imo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 02:43:40 PM
Powerful shot, but a little 'dark' in style for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 01:30:10 PM
great job with the processing here ... this will probably ribbon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 01:27:54 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 12:24:56 PM

Like this a lot, i would be interested to hear about the lighting and post processing here as the result is brilliant.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 09:45:42 AM
I hope this scores well for you, some of the voters don't care for the digital art-like look or use of filters. Lets not think outside the box or anything geesh. Hope you wrote in comments how you achieved this. Good luck.10
