The greens here really do a great deal to give this interest. Nice shot.

Can not think of an image where the green tint is so aptly employed to create a mood. Very well done. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Great photo, but the message I'm getting loud and clear is totally different from the title: Migraine!

I can't help but think of some Star Trek alien. I like how sharp it is. Very cool shot. Well done.

Love this shot... It reminds me of the seventies movie Scanners! I'm not a real big fan of green, but you make it work well in this shot.

troubling but extremely effective shot.

I like this picture. What sticks out most is the way the blue eyes stick out from all the green around it. Literal take on "Color Studio Portrait." 8

freaky stare. but i like the effects. good work

Great image, I'd have cropped even tighter as the shoulders don't really add anything to the photo. Brilliant clarity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Ewwww evil. Great intense portrait, the eyes are amazing.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2006 07:58:03 AM
Well... that IS a "colored" studio portrait. lol Love the expression.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2006 07:44:40 AM
Haha, you look kindof scary Arngrimur! Friggin love this shot, so totally different from most of the shots in this challenge and it´s really intense. Love the lighting, especially on the eyes and I think the green hue was a good choice! 8 from me :)

OMG - it's the Incredible Hulk! Good composition and detail but, at least as I'm seeing this, green skin just doesn't work for me, sorry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2006 12:43:48 AM
I like the idea of the color wash, but I think it's too green. All I can think of is the Incredible Hulk. I'd like to see the color introduced more subtly.

Quite a Matrix Green. Good shot. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2006 11:07:38 PM
Perhaps you'll call me boring or unartistic, but green skin just doesn't float my boat (unless it's a frog). Nice detail, though.

I like this shot alot, it should do well in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2006 07:10:55 PM
Detail amazing! Not oversharpened at all, a very well composed image which will be up there amongst the best at turnover. For me however the green tone is not as fitting as it could be, I would maybe have desaturated it just a touch, he looks a little like Shreck :) I like the processing you have done, but like I said the green is a touch overwhelming.

04/17/2006 09:49:47 AM
very nice. Can feel the intensity on this!(8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2006 08:50:26 AM
Very effective photo. Actually reminds me far more of Hugo Weaving from The Matrix than Big Brother...Either way I like it and it's fresh. Well done.
