I think this will be a love it or hate it shot. Personally, I love it.
For those that must know, this is a mask on a scarecrow that has seen lots of years. Weather will do strange things to rubber...

__________________________________
This challenge was so amusing! I started out with a 10 - Thanks Joey! went all the way down to a 4.9 and climbed my way back up. My favorite comment has to be GraphicFunk's. It amused me more than the image did and I laughed for at least 10 minutes. It still makes me smile. All the comments do. I set out to do what I wanted - evoke an emotional response on the most base level. Too many of my images are esoteric - I'm going to work on simplicity now.

Thanks to all that voted and commented!

This is great. I hope Ophelia gets some dry skin cream soon. LOL

The crop is a tad tight. Very interesting though.
