wow what a ride! I was in the 8ís at around 75votes and then it slowly went down, but I honestly wasnít expecting such a big score! Thanks everyone for the GREAT comments.

This is a self-portrait with my off camera flash above. I was playing around in photoshop when this idea came to mind, I really liked how the red line created more impact yet still kept it simple plus its always fun to try something new =).

The eyes being so over-whitened spoils it for me a bit but otherwise, I love this. Would've loved to see it without the extra eye-processing. Cool idea, great model. :-)

8-nice portrait, good high key
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very simple idea and nicely executed. This is a nice use of expert editing and fits well into the "portrait" aspect of the challenge.

The tones in this are pretty perfect. I love the texture of his hair. I also like that the band on his face isn't smooth like the one on the background. Simple, yet incredibly effective. My favorite in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2011 09:18:17 PM
Great concept. Well executed. Top pick for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2011 02:22:37 PM
I was immediately drawn to this photo. It deserves to be on a billboard somewhere. Definitely a 10 and the best I've seen thus far. Good luck hope you ribbon.

09/02/2011 12:12:17 PM
Gorgeous and Well Executed. Simple, but splashy. Brilliant!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

More face, less torso in the crop. The eyes/stripe brought me in and the rest diminished my initial reaction.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2011 09:09:36 AM
You've done it again! This is just too excellent. Straight out of a TIME magazine cover, or an album cover. 10 without hesitation.
