Challenge: Best of 2006 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Nikon
Location: Appalachian State Studio
Date: Apr 11, 2006
Aperture: f14
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Portraiture, Diptych / Triptych
Date Uploaded: Jan 11, 2007

Shot in the studio with white backdrop and beauty dish off camera left. Held the camera in my hands and made some faces. Then experimented with the draganizer filter, dodging and burning, selecting my eyes, sharpening and enhancing color. A teacher of mine printed this out in a poster size for one of our class rooms. Its kind of weird with my watching over everyone.

I was going to give you a 6, which would have lowered your score, so I'm glad I didn't. As I said, I love the composition - excellent sharpness, POV, DOF. The processing just threw me off.

Awesome.

Fantastic expression! The post processing has me thinking of a caricature or cartoon character!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Still never quite got over this one - in a good way of course - brings a smile to my face.
Amazing at how much the thumbnail looks like a caricature drawing like one would get at an amusement park.
:)

I don't really care for the processing done on this shot.

Great texture! 9

Too over processed for my personal taste.
I can appreciate it though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2007 05:09:04 PM
You need to get a lens that is a little less sharp, what excruciating details! Great textures and tones in the face. Is that foundation make-up you are using?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2007 02:08:26 PM
I usually don't like way over-photoshopped images, but this one grabs hold of me. Kind of like a modern art painting. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It's sort of cartoon-like, but captivating at the same time. Incredible eyes. I'm impressed. 10

YOu have a knack for interesting processing. A good knack i'll add.

Funny capture, but not sure if I like it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 06:20:48 PM
Great job and I really like how you have processed it into the final product (Mad magazine flare to it). Excellent result. Good Luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 10:43:23 AM
Nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 10:00:25 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 08:05:15 PM
Super funny... Great capture. I'm assuming you used an HRD technique on this? The color is great! Good luck with the challenge!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 06:52:48 PM

seen this in your profile!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 03:57:05 PM
If only it wasn't for that utterly bizarre processing, this could surely have been a delightfully self-deprecatory image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 12:03:44 PM
great seld-portrait, lots of character. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 09:17:52 AM
In my opinion, you have used too much post processing, but like I said, this is just my personal taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 08:40:29 AM
Not my kind of post processing I'm afraid
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 08:29:30 AM
interesting processing. like the composition but going to pass on voting as not my style - don't want to lower what may be a decent score due to my bias.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 07:44:23 AM
I like it realy to much
Would you please reveal the type of processing you did?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 10:05:37 PM
Quite a bit of post processing here. Make for a cartoonish portrait. I'm not complaining because it is very funny.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 07:06:14 PM
Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 06:01:45 PM
interesting perspective....eye catching for sure

This is one of the best applications I’ve seen for the “pushed” HDR/dragonized looking processing. In general I’m not a big fan of the look. Mostly because the photos I’ve seen it used on would have looked better or more natural, without it. I have seen this techniques done well here on DPC where the HDR adjustments were barely detectable and not pushed to the cartoon stage on landscapes and such. I have seen the dragon filter used only a few times where I have actually liked the effect. You have managed to successfully pair the “pushed” HDR/dragon filter look (for lack of a better word) up with an animated expression. Top-notch work in every way and to date this is my favorite “animated looking” processing here at DPC. High marks from me. Good luck in the challenge

IMO,this is very overprocessed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 09:25:17 AM
Dont know exactly, how to think about this one. But it is technically well done and funny too. Thanks for sharing and good luck in the challenge! voted 8

great editing...I love the tones you ended up with and the creativity of the shot in general...amazing crisp focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 12:19:56 AM
What's up with your left eye? The pupil seems blue? Otherwise, I like that you kept the imperfections, nice. (I mean that in the kindest way possible)
