Taken as a follow-up to the Going Grunge series. Self portrait.

This image means a lot to me on a lot of levels, but hopefully it's strong enough to stand on its own merit.

Awesome.

One of the things that I enjoy most about your portfolio is that, for the most part, you have commentary on most of the images. I love looking at people's work, but the stories, comments, PP steps add SO much to the enjoyment of the work. Thanks for being so very willing to share not only how you process some of your work, but for sharing your life, your thoughts and your feelings.

Thanks for adding so much to dpc.

Once again, just incredible editing and awesome SP. You can get a full story out of those eyes, and the expression. Powerful shot.

Was just thinking...a triptych (sp?) with this shot in the center and the recent SP shot (Inner child) on one side and Blue in the face or Cheese on the other...the three sides of Jimmy.

I like the lighting here,the way the left eye is darker brings more dispair here. Great work You inspire!

I seem to come a crossed this photo often. Even though itís raw and eerie to me itís one of the photos that come immediately to mind when I think of DPC.

lovely pic indeed. very emotive, yet understated. the emotion isn't obvious or cheap, but restrained, and all the more powerful for it. i'm not entirely sure about the 'graininess' i tend to look at it a bit more than hte actual image, but that's the only quibble.

super work!

Wow! Talk about getting a grasp on a new technique. The emotive force here is undeniably strong. Very well done!

i love this photo. the color tones work well, and i like what the grain is doing to your eyes. there's a fragility conveyed in this image that's really appealing, and a great contrast to that urban grunge thing going on. no criticisms here, it works for me.

I like this shot, its very thought provoking, love the grungy look, good PhotoShop work

Really like this shot. The eyes are the big standout to me. I see a lot of emotion in them and it works well with the "grunge" effect of the photo as a whole. Very well done!

I LOVE this!! Is there a tute on grunge here as I have been hearing a lot about it and not sure what it is, brushes?

Blue Ribbon cropping. Nicely done.

this is my fav of them- I think it has to do with the eyes, very luminous.

Excellent excellent work. I'll agree with Joey, amazing. This (my fave of grunge series) is beyond wow. That is something that can hang in any gallery anywhere.

Oh I simply adore this. The hands/eyes make the shot. You are quite photogenic, dirty and all. LOL

Keep up the good work.

This is stunning...I love images that make you really FEEL, not just go "oh cool." Wonderful treatment, the colors are perfect. :)

Holy moly Jimmy! This is great and so unlike you :) I would sharpen your eyes to make them really pop! The colors re great. I'm not a big fan of grunge but it's a bit refreshing to see people like you who don't use it much experiment with it :)
