yes, that's my sign. I was proofing for the painting with light challenge, when i looked for this new open challenge, and found this pic appropriate. Not perfect, but ....the rules are the rules, no spot editing.
Tech: studio in the dark, shutter bulb mode, myself shooting a flash lamp in my face , two times,with each attitude, one with red gel on the flash, another with blue. then closing the shutter.
Canon D60 with Canon 50mm 1.4@f22
Post process: convert from RAW with PS CS, crop,slight saturation adjust, some rotation, frame, resize, mode 8 bits/channels,USM, save for web.
Much fun to do this !

Very creative idea! Only thing I'm not too fond about is the necklace (sort of a distraction). Good expression on "their" faces. =-)

Would have been better without the necklace.

Cool shot! How did you do it?

Nice cropping - I like the apparent dominance of one and submissiveness of the other.
It's a shame that on the second part of the illumination the head was not put a little farther away - to give the head a bit more "thickness" did that make sense!
I also think the blue "face" seems a littlehigher on the "head" than the red one-
The only real problem I have with this is the 3 chains - it gives away what it is. When I did a similar picture some years ago - we taped a piece of chain from the neck to the chest - first on the left then on the right for the second exposure. It then looked like one loop of chain.
We were working with film and double exposure - so it was easire to do it that way.
No of course you would do that in software - but the tape and single chain means
a: you are definately within the editing rules
b: it leaves a better pic than editing

Very impressive double exposure! Details please.

Nice placement of the double exposure. The lighting has a sinister look about it. Nice job.

This would be a cool painting with light pic. Actually... I think I saw something similar there too. Good luck - nice shot!

Some noise in the shot, but it's a good idea and well done.

Excellent Pic, would love to see the specs on this one? 2 lights (red and blue?) turned on and off on shooting time bulb? or 30 sec?

This one is quite amazing. Expressing different moods by the look of faces and colors at the same time. It has taken me a long time trying to figure out how this was done. I think I have got it now. Technically very good.

This is very awesome! Very neat way to incorporate a double exposure. Love the color change and composition. Exposure and focus very good. (One slight distraction is that red spot between the two images) - Excellent job!

Interesting to look at - necklace is distracting to me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2004 10:15:46 PM
does this fall wihin basic editing? (no combining miltiple images?)
01/28/2004 08:45:51 PM
Gotta be a winner, assuming it's legal :) Awesome job. Simply awesome. - 10 from me.

Cool... excellent use of lighting. This must have taken a few tries. I also like the tilt to it. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is great. I think I know how did you do this, but the use of different colours is very clever. My favourite!
