My first try on the draganizer filter. Never used it before, but for now I'm satisfied with the result. For the background I used a book with photos of New York. I hope this title fits well. It was difficult for me to choose a right one.

Adjustments:

Crop
Unsharp Mask
Draganizer filter
Nik filter - Indian Summer ( for the orange/yellow color )
Dodging

After the challenge

WOOOOHOOOOO!!! I'm so happy with this! Thanks so much everyone for your votes and comments!

Some of you were totally right about the title. Psychotic would have been better.

Well I loved it during the challenge and am feeling the same way if not more now. Incredibly clever to use a book's photo as your background...wonderfully done. You did a great job for using that filter for the first time. The eyes nail it in though...captivating. Great work...great image.

This is very nice. Draganizer effect is neat. I should myself try it. I expected this to be in top 10.

This is such a spooky shot! Fantastic job at creating mood with processing. Outstanding work and congratulations on the high scoring finish. (Surprised it actually didn't finish a bit higher.)

title's a bit off but the shot is wonderfully creepy - the eyes are a standout (without the grime -- good idea) -- one of my favorites

The image is well done... post processing well done too... the composition is very good.. Personally I would use psychotic rather than Psychedelic - I am an old hippy :)

Nice portrait, very "movieish". Now how can a city be dark AND psychadelic at the same time? Good pic though.

05/12/2006 02:07:06 PM
Hmmmm... maybe more like psychotic! Creepy! 9

I'm not usually a fan of heavily edited, grunge look images, but in this case I love it - it is VERY appropriate!! This photo has an unreal feel to it that makes it perfect for a movie poster.

nice and moody. the hair blends into the top right which kinda takes away from it. I don't think psychedelic works for the poster because most people think hippie with that word. maybe pyschotic would work better.

Great photo and very artistic PP. The eyes definately make this photo. Well done!

I don't think you mean psychedelic. Then again, his smile is awfully friendly. Maybe he just drank some Tequila. It's a good poster-like image, but the smile deflates the drama. He just seems like he's posing, rather than involved in some dramatic situation.

I like the title. The expression/eyes of the guy is just creepy enough to work. Nice perspective with the urban setting behind him. 8

Looks similar to Gerhard Schröder :)

what I am looking for in this challenge is for a creative 'wow' shot that would go on a movie poster. I think that's what the challenge is all about...I could see this fitting in that catergory very well! well done...I can imagine Mel Gibson in this pose...love the editing and the eyes 9

That creeps me out. But it's a good photo, just...creepy.
