I did my roommate in a nice dress and painted her with a flashlight. I and my teammates feared the DNMC trolls would give it a low score so I came up with this since I had thought about doing something similiar to this anyway a couple days ago. Now its 23 minutes to rollover and I'm just now getting it in. I hope it does well. I spent a lot of time in my bathroom where it was darkest trying to get this right.

I used two different flashlights. One for the dnmc writing then another to paint the trolls and the photo. I put a black foam piece in front of the lense during change of the lights to keep from getting the lines going to and from.

pp was unsharp mask, straighten, crop, contrast bumped just a bit, resize, bumped the desat down just a tad then saved for dpc.

Well, it made me smile. But, since it is not in the spirit of the challenge, I will have to give it a DNMC.... just joking:)

interesting... don't really understand the signifigance of the small photo... bitterness over a past entry or just a random addition to the scene? The light isn't very well done and barely legible.
