That's me behind the frosted glass. I focused on the glass and sprayed some water on it to form a stain, took many shots and ran back and forth to adjust my position in the frame. After shooting, I adjusted the levels, brightness/contrast, Hue/Saturation, burned for eyes and mouth, used Topaz filter(psychedilic set) in Photoshop.


This is my first ribbon! Thanks to the voters!

Horrible photo. Really well done, again I really wish folks who don't like a photo could recognize when it is well executed and a good challenge fit and if they can't bring themselves to give it a decent score then not to score at all - I fail to see why this photo should score anything below 5

Great choice of subject. The lack of focus adds to the concept.

That bright spot on the nose seals the deal on this shot. Nice use of natural textures.
