To langdon: Just messed with the levels. I'd taken the picture with a satin black backdrop behind me and stood a ways in front of it. Then very bright lights on my face very close to me and a fast shutter speed. It took me a few shots to get the metering right, but eventually got it so my face was lit up normal-looking but the background faded to solid black. You could still see a TINY amount of detail, but a quick level adjust in photoshop fixed it.

Title doesn't fit the unamused look on your face. I'm still not sure how you achieved the amazingly black background.

Excellent photo and title! Hard to tell how you incorporated the mirror for the challenge, and the out stretched arm.

incredible consistancy of background. How did you pull that off?

I love the picture, and the emotion in your face, but it's the wrong emotion for the title.

Hey, you! To be honest...I feel you could have put up a better picture than this. Hoever, it's still a better picture, with the title fitting the image, though you could have tried to appear more afraid!
