Thanks everyone for the comments and votes!

A friend of mine was kind enough to let me paint her face black and pose for a bunch of shots. This take was actually at the end when we were done and she just thought it would be interesting to move her head around in different positions. This particular one, she quickly tilted her head back which created that cool ghostly eye.

Here's a more standard pose...I asked her to look like she wanted to kill someone. Scarily she had an easy time with that.

I like this one but I thought the one I went with was much more interesting.

Top shot! I love mystery and drama and the lost-and-found forms and details. 10

Definitely a top pick. The exceptional tone management, composition and framing come together to create what may be the best response to the challenge of the bunch!

The single illuminated eye is a nice and spooky touch, but the skin looks odd.

Great concept - My only nitpick is the left eye/sunglasses gives off a eerie looking glare
