Challenge: New Year's Resolution III (Advanced Editing III)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Location: Home
Date: Jan 1, 2005
Aperture: 22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 2 seconds
Galleries: Humorous
Date Uploaded: Jan 1, 2005

A double exposure. Skull printed on paper, cut out, double sided tape to stick on face. 2 second exposure: one second with mask on face and one second with mask removed.

Use clone to even out hard edges. Reduced hue and um. Dodged and burn on shadows and highlights.

I was going to name this, "To morph better in 2005," To do so would have rendered this image valueless but in accordance to the challenge. To do it justice I chose the unpopular road knowing that many voters will miss the ironic humor. No regrets.

Dear Dan,
I think you have been done in, this is a masterpiece. I knew when I saw it that this is yours. I'm starting to believe that you, we, should not submit any pic that requires people to think. In any event, a great pic.

You got robbed GP, this one should at least have ended in the first 10,
the message involved in this photograph (for me its that we're all slowy dying) is very deep, but maybe its a tabu for many....

Somehow I just knew this had to be yours.
It had the "Creative Mark of Dan" written all over it.
I'm amazed this did not place higher.
Kudos to the technical effort.

Oh man, you've done this. This multiple exposure was fantastic to come across in this challenge and somehow very fitting and poignant. I've done a lot of similar stuff so I know how hard it can be to get this sort of shot the way you want it. I think you did an excellent job here and I can feel your stare looking at me across cyberspace. I must remember to add this to my favorites (it's full now and I've got to clear it out first...but no worries).. 10

what is the resolution??

I can't wait to see the backstory on this one, LOL. The neck section lower left comes across as a chin bulge when it is combined with the skull, and this is a flaw for me. The clothing appears to be Camo, even if it's just shadows, and that's a bit chilling. All in all it's eerie, and well done.

Daniel - your inventiveness and originality never fail to impress! Of course if this is not Daniel then I'll look pretty dumb! But whoever this is, is in a "graphic funk!" :)

Great one Graphicfunk 8 :-)

its you again dan?, hehe it surprising how easy its to identify a person by its eyes! .The skull and the face fits perfectly, only some shadows in the eyes (specially the left one), the overall effect is impressive.

is this you Dan? good photo anyhow. the alignment seem to be a little out of sync.
How did you do this within the rules? There will prolly be a DQ request soon. I had some problem connecting this to the Challenge itself, but I get it now. Good luck.

hah, cool. Cooler white balance would have given it +1

I really like it. Puts a whole new spin on the topic.

One of the scariest images I have seen on DPC :) I am finding it hard to even look at it. Because of the overlay of the skull, even the eyes look all creepy and it goes down deep into your system and finds a fear that I would not like to address soon.
I think it's a very powerful image. Well done.

Looking a bit gaunt today. Nice exposure work. It all blends well, I wish there wasn't a cast over the corner in your right eye. I like how the image tells us life is short enough. Everything in moderation and enjoy. Good luck and HNY.

hi dan!
yet another excellent multiple exposure.
maybe a little burn on your right eye to help fill in the light part of the eye, also a little dodge on the skull near the teeth might help to mask the lips some.
overall good shot!

Wow, is this creepy! Great image though. The eye on the left looks a little strange. The line across it is a little distracting. I look forward to your details. Very original.

Okay. What?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't know how you did it, but I sure hope you left comments on how! This is such a unique shot!
