Great job, dogman. :D Very nice silhouette with clean lines and I love the(gradient)background colors. My top choice!

Thanks for all the comments and votes folks.

This shot has finally put me over the 5.9+ Average Vote Received barrier.

I had fun with this shot. It's another last minute idea. My original plan was to create a nose extension using some sort of clay or Halloween facial putty (that's why I went for a silhouette image), but I just didn't have the time. I think a bigger shnoz would have made the image place a bit higher.

Thanks again.

Yeah, this works. I don't drink, but I still understand what's going on here with your clear storytelling and wonderful use of sillhouette and color. Wonderful cropping, too. 9

Wonderfully lit, and good choice of background lighting, as well... Love the rimming on the face... Composition... Nice work.

Excellent setup and lighting. Perfect colors and sihlouette. A minor point - since the nose was the main "subject" - it would have been great if the rim lighting were around the nose as well as the chin. One of the top images in this cahllenge.

Fantastic lighting!! I love it.

this is a great image. i'm a little on the fence about whether or not it fits the challenge... it's a defining characteristic of a person (what they can do) but I think this was calling for more of a phsyical trait. I could be wrong.. either way I'm giving you an 8.

Excellent lighting and good use of color.

Great lighting, but it's a touch much on the surface of the wine and super neon of his silhouette...? Maybe? Regardless, love the tones of red, I give it a ten!

very nice idea and composition

I really like the gradient in the background, and the way there is a hint of detail on the silhouette. The composition is great too. 10
