Thanks for all your comments everyone. I cannot take credit for this, as I was just copying one of my favourite photographers, Erwin Blumenfeld, who is best known for his 1950s iconic Vogue cover of Jean Patchett (the eye, beauty spot and red lips).

I originally thought i could do a double exposure by whiting out a silhouette and exposing a front face shot in the black area ... digital and film are not the same :( So i ended up cutting out my profile on a white sheet of paper and hiding half of my face behind it. Lotta fun, but very frustrating with so many misses.

This is a more refined version with the help of photoshop. Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_890052.jpg

Its amazing what a little time will do. I sit here now, looking at your photo, and marveling at its brilliance. Borrowed idea or not, your execution was perfect. I also look at the date, and I wonder, "why havent I seen this before?", only to notice that I did vote on this during the challenge. I gave you a 7 at the time, which means I liked it back when I was voting, but I wish I could give you a retroactive bump in score.

Excellent shot.

If you put on a pair of round glasses, you'd look just like Ben from Lost!

Very effective optical illusion; only the eyes miss in the merger.
