Was visiting my cousin today, and she asked me if I would do her a portrait for the challenge, I had with me the 400d with 18-55mm as she wanted to borrow it. So I agreed, having to make the best of the situation. The original wasnt good at all, but the "expert? editing" went crazy, lots of stuff done that I barely can recall, from levels, curves, layer modes, color balance, copy and paste (from/to same image), liquify, face retouching (cloning), etc..

When voting is over, I will put a link to the original image (if its allowed to link)

She looks a bit like you too ;) Getting ripped first up makes ya angry and hungry for more. Be the wild beast and shred. I really liked this one as well, especially the way you captured and processed the lips.

I love this. Good enough for a ribbon in my opinion :)

What great big eyes! I like the dark, gritty tones to this. I think I would prefer the composition of the subject to be in the top third of the photo, but that is more personal taste than something that is technically wrong.

I can't explain why, but I really like it. Painterly almost.
