Man, you have gorgeous eyes!!! Love the texture and monocolour of the face. Might have been even better with a bit less of black space beside the face, just maybe a third off. But well done!

Great texture and idea for a self portrait. The grey mud really makes your eyes pop right off the screen, congrats on your 4th place finish!

Great shot. The color of your eyes are beautiful together with the grey mud on your face. Nice compo too.

the texture of the mud looks great in your portrait. blue eye are cool. maybe I'd crop your shoulder off of the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very Creative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 02:09:58 PM
I like the abstractness of this photo. The only thing I would have liked to be done different, would be more intenseness in the eyes....that is DEFINITELY just my opinion, but I think it would have added a little something more to the photo. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 12:37:50 PM
Wicked! Great eye color, catchlight and great contrast to show that lovely skin texture!
One complaint is that the light at the top of the head is brighter than at bottom. Would have liked to see that more even.

BUT, this is a great shot nonetheless. One of my favs so far.

Nice lighting. One of the few times selective coloring works. Maybe a bit too much dead space on the left?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 06:27:54 PM
I hope your camera is still clean!! I like the desaturation and the piercing blue on your eyes! Awesome job- 9

10 all the waayyyyyyyyy. The ribbons going to match your eyes! Congrats on a FANTASTIC image.

11/07/2006 11:01:58 AM
Ah, the old "Mud on the face with eyes in high contrast"... I still like it though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 03:26:05 AM
Wow very creative! crisp, sharp image, great eyes, epic lighting and positioning, sharp shooting 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, that is just awesome. Fantastic contrast with the eyes and the mud caked face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 07:57:36 PM
really diggin' the texture detail here.. your eyes are almost too blue for me I cant tell if the mud is grey or if you did the desat thing.. (thinking you did) either way.. I still love the texture... good score from me :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 06:18:28 PM
Really intense. I love the eyes. Great use of ight and negative space. Clear and emotive. NOt at all expected.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 04:30:08 PM
Excellent, excellent shot. My only 10 of the challenge at the moment. Anyone who is willing to do this to themselves deserves a high vote! I would expect to see this at the top of the heap.

He, he, you're missing the tea bags on the eyes and you'd have the perfect mud bath :)

whoa trippy
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 04:47:06 AM
Face mask or photoshop? I think face mask, with some PS aid ... or did you get cement in your eyes? Great idea, lighting fits it, and ... are your eyes this blue? Small pupils tells me it is not a flash but fixed light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 04:00:34 AM
winner.

<a bit later>

have been through all the images now and this still deserves its ten, but now I am thinking you might have a bit of competition for that blue ribbon. defintely 2nd or 3rd though..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 02:47:23 AM
"Awesome".....Just Awesome..... I think this is another "ribbon" winner.....
This is only my second "10" that I have given this challange.....
