Wooohooooo!!!! 5th place!!!!

Sorry I didn`t write any details before, this was totally last minute and I was afraid to loose the challenge if I write details...

So, black turtle neck, black background, my brothers arm and hand.. Adjust levels to make blacks real black... Some heal and clon for the face and some dodge and burn in some spots...

Sharpening and neat image.

Thank you all for your nice comments! I really apreciate it :D

OK, you're gonna' have to tell everyone how you did this. Amazing!

Cool idea! The only thing to criticize here is that there is too little negative space in you composition. Overall a great image, good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/10/2006 10:46:27 PM
well done, and strangely poignant, in a disturbing way. 8ish bump to 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/10/2006 09:19:11 PM
Very unique! Good lighting and composition. My only nic pic would be that little bit of your right ear. Too bad we couldn't see more of it or none at all. Pretty minor though. bumping up.
