For some reason you remind me of George Carlin!

This was one of the most well posed and creatively processed shots in the challenge. The expression alone was worth top 20. Reminds me of some of the expressions I see on Salvador Dali shots.

I don't know if you continue to use these post challenge--but perhaps think about a crop at the top to 1/4" above your right eyebrow (actually, cut point would be just below that one downward pointing hair mid upper right. I think that might bring more prominance to your fantastic expression.

Pretty cool effect. Be interested to see how you obtained it.

I don't know if you've read the brilliant novel "Industry of Souls" by Martin Booth, but this powerful, disturbing image would make a perfect cover photograph. Such an original take on the concept of 'grain' too, and it's certainly no gimmick ... it's contextually totally credible. 9

Very interesting picture. Love the actual use of wood grain in here. Not too much to distract but he almost materializes from it. Good job!

A good subject for grain, I think the vertical filter is too bad.

Wood grain is not image grain.
