This is an image overlay in camera. First shot the beer sign and then the eye, overlaid in camera. Took allot of shots of the eye to get them to line up.

I hope you do a "How'd they do that" on this photo. Brilliant. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2006 09:17:13 AM
creative idea, but for me, the bottom eye lid is too close for comfort. i think if you backed it up a bit and got the focus more consistent, it would be better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2006 10:23:02 PM
omg! that's me!!
what an honor it is for you to take a picture just for me! lol.

This is very cool. I'm not quite sure how you did this so well, but kudos! Going in my favs (obviously)

Wow, if this is a real photograph its awseome. I dont know if its psp's or not, but voting as if it were not.

This is both interesting and unsettling at the same time. Very good job of catching this reflection, however, in it's current context it is kind of hard to tell it's a neon sign. Will be interesting to see where this one ends up. Good luck.

This is awesome. Please post the details after the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/10/2006 02:54:28 AM
I suspect you will do quite well in this challenge! Certainly creative thinking. HOw would it look with the eyelids desaturated? Not sure if you could do this in basic but maybe???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2006 06:05:10 PM
That is an excellent capture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2006 09:21:14 AM
Good luck
The most original BY FAR!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2006 01:15:34 AM
Fantastic - need to mark as a favorite, for I want to know 'how'. Hoping it's legal! ;) (I'm guessing double exp inside your camera)

not sure how this is legit for basic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 07:47:02 AM
Interesting idea....... like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 06:33:35 AM
if this fits in the rules, then its a clear winner to my mind.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 03:31:52 AM
is this legal? cause if it is it deserves the blue ribbon...you should get it validated ... will give you the benefit of the doubt with my score
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 02:37:29 AM
I am not sure but that certainly doesn't seem like basic editing to me maybe you should get some concensus judging here! It looks a lot like you masked your image then layed the neon sign over your eye imagine with a slight opacity so that your actual eye would shine through but then that is just me.
