While the rock has an interesting profile, and you made humorous use of the formation, the low contrast of the rock makes it difficult to get involved with the interesting detail of the rock. The obvious manipulation of the sky bothers me, as does the out-of-focus 'lollipop'.

I think you would have had a nicer file to work with if you'd closed the aperture for a longer depth of field and used a slower shutter speed, possibly opening up the combination a full stop to add sparkle to the highlights.

This is all personal preference of course, and I see from the comments others disagree with me. I see a greater potential for this image, however, and applaud the eye that saw the figure.

It sure is a face, but not too attractive of an image...

Great find and there is no doubt of the face. Seems a little dark on my monitor so it losses depth but overall good job.

Hi, this is an excellent capture and I gave it a 9. The one point missing (to make it a 10) is because around the face there is a strange glow that might be the result of just dodging the face to make it more visable, you gotta be careful with that tool ;)
Other than that this was one of my favourite pictures. :)

Nice find. A little on the darkside, but perhaps mother nature wasn't cooperating.

heh -- I think some people may see the 'lollipop' looking thing and think that's the hidden face. I did until I looked closer -- that rock is awesome.
