This is not a double exposure. I inserted the eyes into the mask and gave them a twirl, lol. I then printed it on acetate and played opaquing the rear to let flesh tones show at the right places. Slight amount of cloning to make the perfect fit.

Don't know which photographer this is a tribute to, but this is a very fascinating photo. Very good tones. I am very curious to read the photographers comments on this one. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the image portrayed in this, I'm just not sure it meets the advanced editing rules with the addition of a major piece created? If so, brilliant!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 08:38:47 AM
This can only be Graphicfunk. No one else has such a good sense for the surreal and presents it so matter of factly. An excellent tribute. 10

WOW! This is cool! Love this. One of my top picks ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 07:34:41 PM
Damn that's a great shot Graphicfunk!
I had a similar idea a while back with different electronic components exposed under the skin and stuff, but never thought I could pull it off. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 04:20:17 PM
Iteresting Idea that is well exicuted. Great toning and exposure! Tack sharp..Great job! I do wonder if the button in the middle would be considered a distractive element. Im on the fence with that one...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 10:39:44 AM
Definitely looks graphic-funk-ish! Very impressive, as always.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 10:09:45 AM
Great picture. Love the execution. Will not count off for it, but i believe a more definite edge around the "face" would be more effective. but this does not take away from this wonderful image. great job. 8
