The idea here was to bring all the textures together, bark and cap, face and leaves, sort of a camouflage. The processing was integral to the concept.

The Freddy Kreuger resemblance is intentional :-)

As a former victim, I feel safe in saying..."just say No"!

Not a very favourable pp for the man's face.

I love how the tree ties the hat into the background, and the texture of the foliage ties the background into the face. A wonderful circular trip for the eyes, it both starts and ends with the eyes. Also, perfect use of over-processing, this wouldn't work without it. I would like to see this cropped square, with about 1/3 off the top and 1/3 off the left. It wouldn't score as well, but I believe it would be a stronger photo and would help to define the movement. As is, this deserves a high mark. -9

They all share the same texture. Cool.

Real men tonemap the crap out of their photos and they don't apologize for it.

Hmmm. I feel like you had plenty of texture going for you in this picture (and it would have scored higher on my vote) without the "baking". Everything else about the exposure, I like. Sorta seems like you're making the salt the main course, instead of the seasoning. (Still voted above average)

i'm a huge supporter of post processing. in fact i get my share of comments about it, a few not so supportive. for me personally, i think its over processed. so much that it takes the attention away from the concept or assignment given. the technique is cool and you have done a great job with the skill, but i'm not sure it works here. jmho of course.

The texture of the tweed seems to have gotten lost in the name of overprocessing. It's just too much all competing with all the rest. Nothing sets the headwear apart from the rest of the frame.

a very different and wonderful photo - the way it all blends in....but yet the subject is still very identifiable

Well done, but a bit too much advanced editing (imo)

I think you went way overboard with the post-processing here. It's a shame as the photo has impact in a quirky, non-conformist way.

Over Done. Sorry 3
