Black and White overexposure of myself on a self timer. The saw represents the tool used for the "Tonsillectomy" and the overexposure makes me, the patient, look like a ghost.
I have mixed feelings on this shot, so I entered it to get an idea of what others think.

8 for the daring processing. needs a better title. the tonsillectomy hasn't "gone wrong". That implies something accidental.

I had one of those many many moons ago. It took me a second to figure out what is going on here, notice the hacksaw and all. Its a fun idea, but Personally I don't think it works well. I think the sheet really flattens everything out to much and you lose the horror type appeal this image should carry. Maybe try it with higher contrasts and should work out better for ya.

How is this alternative? Horror yes, alternative no! OK that being said and done, you do have an interesting artistic flair to this image, it was just entered in the wrong contest! :)

At first I had no clue what was going on, now I see the person but I'm still not quite sure what to make of it.
