Post-Challenge: Thank you for all the comments! It's interesting to me how some liked the crazy processing and some didn't. I'm going to guess that the processing is what put it into my personal top three, so maybe I'll stick with a little extra processing, here at dpc?

Happy New Year!

I like the idea and the actual image itself with it's great eye contact and close crop is interesting but I don't like the processing at all. Too polarised and smoothed out for my preferences.

Too "NeatImaged" for me, personally, even as an artistic statement - kind of gives me the creeps.

Funny shot. Way over edited and flat on the coloring.
