Interestinf DOF but I think it would be more interesting if the eyes were in focus rather than the nose.

Red-eye might be a more impressive effect if it didn't come with cyan-speckled nose, cheeks, and ears. As it is, it looks like you have a bizarre rash.

Not really the most appealing of effects, but definately different. I can't really find a sharp focus in here. Looks like maybe on your nose, but the effect kills any focus that might be here. I think the angle and framing/cropping are ok. Just doesn't really appeal much to me. You're forhead looks like it's trying to direct airplane traffic or something. really way too bright.

LOVE the creative use of color in this photo! It's very interesting! Not sure how much impact the photo would have without it, though.

The idea is great...the framin as well. Unfortunately, I feel like the wrong part was in focus in your picture. I would have liked to see clearly defined eyes instead of the tip of the nose. I gave you a 6.

I think a portrait should reveal some character, or emotion of the model, by showing expression in eyes or other facial features. Did your picture accomplish that? yes

Hmm. This one look a little too freaky to me. Interesting Idea though. Lots of Hue/Saturation adjustments I am guessing. Nice use of shallow DoF, but I think your forhead is a little too satruated. And the blue into the stubble, under your nose, distracts a little. Maybe that was unavodable.

Dude! You need some sunshine! Step away from that computer and go outside!
