Great pic Leroy, different from what we are use to.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 12:45:24 PM
Gosh, yer head fell off and landed upside down on the floor. Great idea and execution.

The hard line on your chine to the black where you erased you neck looks to be a bit hard. I know, minor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 07:38:20 PM
Funny. Nice lighting and pose. Maybe crop a bit of the dead space off the top (just a little)?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

11/06/2006 05:53:36 PM
I'm impressed whether or not you were doing a head stand! Upside down heads are really wierd things to look at, aren't they?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent photo and creativity!

Masterful execution that is certain to please all voters. Bump.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 06:38:08 AM
Oh man, that's just cheesy... hahaha. I get the games reference to the tiles but I think it would have been more appropriate on, say, a butcher's block. Great creative stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 10:40:07 PM
Great effect. How'd you do it?!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this shot, it is different, and the colors work well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 05:35:35 PM
Very different! And very cool! What's kinda neat is if you look at it long enough the eyes can be seen as right side up, which is eerie. You pulled this off well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 04:20:51 PM
Nice idea, excellent shot. clear and concise.

Leroy?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 04:53:16 AM
Judging on the tiles, this is not a mere 180 flip, but they could be either wall or floor? Setup afterwards, pleeeeze :-) Real nice ...

If you wanted to freak more people out you should have glued cheese sticks to your head and recreate that scene in The Thing. :P
