This skull has been hanging in our barn for quite some time. If you look closely, you can see where there's a star on the forehead. At one time the I had started painting the skull and finally my wife made me move it out to the barn. I was struggling for an idea on this challenge and decided to try putting the lens cap in the skull's eye. I took the skull down to an old rock waterfall behind our place. It was shady, early evening light when I took this.

Very creative and artistic. Great job on the lighting. The contrast of the dark background and the subject makes this one of my top picks. I pridict a top 10 for sure.

Well, if you insist on pronouncing it that way, but if you came to Japan, they wouldn't understand what you're talking about. ;>)

I think a different orientaton of the skull might have been better. Just a suggestion.

j/k, its a good photo. I like the rough texture and tones, but there seems to be a slight blue cast to it as a whole
