This is a total classic. I've always found something extremely freakish about these gas masks... and you've captured that 'freakish-ness' perfectly. Awesome job!

Funny and alarming to move the viewer without notice. Bump.

Wow! Striking

is this a reflection on her or her husband? haha?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2006 08:10:44 PM
that background really is amazing!!! Gas masks are always cool!

Im not sure if some of the red smoke type stuff moving over the model would help the background seem more three dimensional, or ruin how nicely the model pops out.

Bizarre. But effective. 8.

This does not seem to be faceless to me. There is a distinct face, but the face of the model. I like the photo a lot, but don't think it fits the challenge.

10/14/2006 09:43:29 AM
very funny and cool. I love the background but the hat, mask combo makes it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2006 02:39:35 AM
You look like that cartoon Spy vs Spy!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2006 03:08:30 PM
ok, i hope I don't have nitemares now. pretty sweet though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/12/2006 10:47:11 PM
This image actually makes me laugh because it reminds me so much of those Mad Magazine Spy vs. Spy cartoons! Love the background!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/12/2006 07:10:43 PM
Oh gosh! This looks like a huge bug! Great job on the lighting and setup. My only nit-pick is that it is not completely centered and I think it has to be with your composition. Crop a little off the right and it will be perfect. 8

Well of course you got an amazing photo. I think it is freaky, but executed like a true pro. GL mate.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/12/2006 12:08:44 PM
This is just too cool. The tone are subtle but interesting and the lighting is perfect. Subject matter is...well too cool. 9

Too funny! Well executed, well titled, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2006 09:07:23 AM
Weird, but very cool! When I first saw the title, I thought it was misspelled......but I see it's not!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2006 07:47:34 AM
Sensational in a ghastly way!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2006 07:23:24 PM
Nice play on words with the title. The background looks a bit extreme (due to post editing?) but I do like the idea and dark comedy of this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2006 05:09:14 PM
spy vs. spy -ish. nice colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

10/10/2006 01:14:41 AM
Very clever this one, kind of eerie, and very unusual, but I like it.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a sweet girl!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 04:12:47 PM
Yes it is, but very creative, clear and well lit. I like it, even if I wouldn't want it on my wall. :) 7

Unforgettable combination of elements. Strong color works perfectly with Boschian subject. The stuff of nightmares but in a good way. Now I know what to do with that old surplus gas mask.
