Challenge: Self Portrait With Your Childhood Self (Expert Editing*)

"Flashback"

The original is here:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/75000-79999/76335/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_924211.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/75000-79999/76335/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_924211.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I shot this on a whim -- just like the original. For challenge purposes, I wanted to see if the idea was even worth pursuing. When I decided it was, and tried to improve on it, I couldn't get it right again; the photograph was either out of focus or blown out by the flash. Or both. Or the framing was off. Never try to improve on a snapshot.

i liked this one quite a lot. probably didn't need the light on your mid-lower section though. flagging aside this is expert - i'll assume you wanted that there and so we've gota little disconnect.

It lacks charts, graphs and formulas. ;-)

Brilliant - literally! Though you should have been wearing a white long sleeved shirt in this one, too.

Still can't remember to turn off the flash for those selfies! Good one.

It doesn't fit what the inspiration for the challenge had in mind, but it's too clever to not reward it with a decent vote. Giving this a nine.

Too funny. Normally I would beg you to delete this dreadful photographic accident, but in this case, for THIS challenge, it is brilliant!!! 8
