Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Secret Self Portrait (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
Location: My shower.
Date: Oct 16, 2012
Aperture: 11.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/50
Date Uploaded: Oct 17, 2012

Wrapped my head in saran wrap and hopped in the shower.
After seeing that it was basic editing, had to do it all over again with a snoot on the flash. Made it on the fly, so the shadow (vignetting) isn't very refined, but I'll live with it.

I had other ideas, but I imagine this along with the title will resonate well with the general DPC voters, so I'm sticking with it. [/sarcasm off]

Wow. Really neat shot though I'm not crazy about the rotation. I can't see the whole page at once on my computer so I was expecting some dramatic title but was surprised to find a joke... or... irony? Hehe. I like the lighting, and the water obscuring your features is pretty creepy!

Interesting and strong image especially with the title. Somewhat disturbing and dark but I like the overall impact it's got, the strong vertical light in the background really gives this tension and adds to the mood.

This is a very interesting photo. I will admit I looked at it for about 10 mins trying to figure out up from down. :) Nice work.
