Hoping I don't bring shame to my tribute choice.
Not real experienced with draganizing things, but after I edited this, I thought it was unusual enough to be compared to his work, mostly because of the facial distortion from close-ups with wide angle lenses. I tried to use the draganizer gently, and I even left out some of the options to try and make it look like a filter wasn't used.

I came real close to yanking this. The more I looked at it, the less I liked it. Oh well What the heck.

He sure looks blotchy!

Interesting expression, angle, texture, proportions of hand to face with wide-angle lens. Background in upper right is a little distracting, but the image is so strong, it is not really an issue. Fascinating.

shows all character lines on hand and face, makes you wonder what this subjects life has been, the good times, the bad times and everything in between.

So moody! And sharp. And and and.. a niner.

This guy just looks sad and the dragan effect further accentuates this fact. I'm almost certain this looks like Joey's dad but if I am mistaken I apologize. The eyes are sharp as a tack. Great job!

Yes, this is a good tribute to Dragan. I just commented on another one, which didn't quite make it, in my opinion, but this one I like a lot.

Greate dragan tribute. I think the editing, post, composition used are really good. Best dragan tribute of the challenge imo.

This image reaches out like a cork screw into one's heart. Its expressive power can not be contained. Bumping up.

One fine image that captures this man's gritty life. The slight oversharpness fits the composition well.

What an excellent portrait. Lots of detail in the skin, and the color is amazing.

background and unsharp hand distract a bit, some parts are too hot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 04:05:27 AM
like the photo treatment and the crispness of the shot...something bothers me about the shape of the hand or where it is located on the face...great eye contact with the lens...you should do very well with this...a top 10 spot???

Great tribute to Andrzej! I note in his work that even though the images are very processed, they still possess a humanistic tonality to them (particularly in the skin tones). You image almost comes across more as a painting, slightly over-sharpened and contrasty. However, no points off for that! Some great PS work here!!
