I like the texture the paint adds to this picture and the facial expression is great. Getting tired of looking at bland facial expressions in this challenge.

12/08/2007 09:26:58 AM
Very strong. I find myself wishing the whites of the eyes were as bright as the brightest teeth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2007 09:16:16 AM
Wow I was wondering if at first this was inspired by that TinMan movie on Sci-Fi. Awesome expression it really grabs your attention.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2007 01:33:46 AM
Wow, that'll cause some nightmares. But worth a 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2007 12:58:04 AM
This is crazy wild. That expression is priceless. I can't wait to see who you are. I keep coming back to this shot. I don't think I will ever get this image out of my head. Way to go.

America, The Tin Man

You are just so imaginative. Love the metallic face paint and your expression.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2007 12:19:25 AM
Excellent! i love the whiskers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2007 10:07:11 PM
its a good composition and lighting, my only problem is that there is no mid-tons what so ever. But it could be with what you have on yourself...or a over-sharpning stuff.

One thing for sure, that i would had added was a catch light in your eye.

Ha, was going to make a comment about the tin man, then saw your title. You might want to look into some anger management classes. Nice capture.

That's the one where he gets a dark black heart? :) Creepy and extreme! I believe a top ten, but this is a tough playing field. One of my top ten anyway.

A bit too dark for me, and I am sooo distracted by your photog. equipment reflection in your eyes, at least that's what I think I'm seeing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 01:02:14 PM
Yikes!. . . but I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 11:27:40 AM
This made me stop and stare for 3 mintues. That's long I think. You have very nice teeth ;) This is a great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 10:32:31 AM
Well I am really struggling with this shot. I get the feeling that it will be an image that people either love or hate. Technically I have to say that it looks far superior than anything I could do but the image itself seems to be caught in between two stools of a) being 'in your face' but b)not being in your face enough (almost as if it has been slightly tempered so as not to 'shock' the viewer and as a result is a little cold and clinical rather than emotional)

I have no doubt it will beat my own effort in the challenge and its a shot I really WANT to like but somehow cant.

Apologies if this seems somewhat incoherant, I guess I am just thinking out loud

12/05/2007 08:35:07 AM
