Location: My spare room

Decided to take an entry by "closer03" titled "No Strength" and potray this in a personal way to myself.

The idea is from the fact that this week I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, which at these beginning stages certainly leaves me weak and tired and a general feeling of having no strength ro get on with life. I am hoping now that I have started my medication that all this changes, with the help of a healthier diet and exercise.

So yes its me in the photo, camera on a tripod. Shot completely setup by myself using one constant light to one side with a white umbrella and grey backdrop behind me. My fianceť just pressed the shutter for me instead of using a timer. Shot in b/w also.

Editing: in PSP X4: Topaz denoize 5, brightness and contrast adjusted using levels, Topaz detail used to highten and sharpen small details, color efex pro 3 used to adjust brightness and contrast levels on face, resized for challange and high pass sharpen again.

like the way you not only gave us a better photo but also think it was smart to use it to raise awareness....(bumping)

Nothing at all like the original... except for the title.

I hope the voters "buy it"... or don't look it up.

It's a wonderful portrait.
