On this one, I used myself as a model, painted the poster and my face. Of course I had my friend to help me align where the paint should go when I had to connect my face with the poster. Got the camera all set up and asked my friend to press the shutter. I'm not sure how to explain to my friend to focus, since she's not used to my dad's camera. This was the kind of the best of the bunch. This definitely was a challenge!

Very interesting composition. Shows creativity and the ability to translate an idea to image very nicely. My only criticism would be the division between your face and the posterboard. If that was a little less discernable this would have been a much stronger contender. Well done!

woah, had to get all the way down to 32nd place to find the first photo I had given a 10. Surprised this didn't break 6 at least.

Very nice treatment and worthy of another bump. And yet another bump.

good idea, unfortunately the face seems to be coming out from a hole (perhaps you could get rid of little shadows that suggest the hole), and there is a little curvature on the painting above the forehead

Very cool and well done. Did a double take on the shot there. I love the concept and you almost pulled it off completely. The edges around the face are a bit harsh and stand out, breaking the seam between the face and the wall. Maybe if you had put a cloth around the edge or even some tape to blend it all together so there wasn't as noticable a seam there. The eyes looking off is nice but looking directly at the camera, making the the type of eyes that follow you around the room would have really added some impact for me personally. And the glare on the forehead is the only other nitpicky thing I see. But again, great concept, great composition an 8
