Certainly has your magical PP touch. Congratulations on the top10. This was one of my faves from the challenge. And, it's 25min after rollover and you have the most faves(5) than any shot in the top20.

What an eclectic mix of textures! I missed this one while voting (only got 42% through this week), but it would have placed high in my vote. It's a great portrait, but is really brought to life by the DOF and the changing textures. Rough, smooth, lines, soft, hard.. gorgeous.

Gorgeous portrait! It's so clear in spots that I get an illustration feel almost. The tones are perfect, as are the catchlights in his eyes. I hope you will ribbon with this entry.
