Well, strangly enough I didn\'t even know about the challenge when I shot this image, but it really fits.

I had some other shots with more chemstry products but they ware simply way to boring with this white background. Well, I planned the whole time ti stick another background to them because this was just personal work.

Same goes for the glasses here, I planned on just fixing them in Photoshop, which worked perfectly, but was not allowed for this competition.

Well, It\'s fun finally entering a challenge once again, and I hope that you guys don\'t treat me too hard for the little amount of effort put into this.

All thanks must go to the model, me :)

Thanks for all the comments, funny how many people told me not to touch my face with the gloves without seeing anything hazardous or even a hint to it.

Well, I kind of put my hopes a little bit higher, at least 85% but I guess this just tells me to work harder and do better next time.

Well what's the problem, start blowing something up... haha this is chemistry after all! Nice composition and I like the over all lighting around the subject but the shot just doesn't due much for me overall, maybe not in this chemistry context. But I love the the glasses, hope you didn't take them from Bubbles - Trailer Park Boys ... hahah

No Worries,Mate! Look for another pair of glasses with tape in the middle, no beard, and alot longer hair. I am quite sure that a chemical reaction is in the offing! ;)

It's never a good idea to put your gloves on your face - and chemistry is fun! Nice sharpness, composition, and contrast.

Nice job on the expression! Maybe it'll strengthen the theme of the challenge better if there are some OOF apparatus or maybe a piece of formula in front of the guy ...

Lost some detail in the whites, could be aided by some props, a book, a beaker, something! It just needs that one more element to make it really stand out.

There's something missing in this photo, like a pile of chemistry textbooks or a bunsen burner... but I like it.
