Regardless, it's great PP.

Nice job despite the DQ.

Well crap. Didn't realize the action I used broke the basic editing rules :( Probably would have been my best image too. I got extremely close to the same effect without using any actions, wish I woulda done that beforehand.

Where's the lemon and salt????? *smile* Nice contrast, but how did you capture that without dodging and burning????? Has a real different look to the effect.

If you saw this pic in a postcard stand in the street would you even think about Alternative Medicine?
