The dragon sign. Tatooed with an ink pen :)

Photo was shot in complete dark, lit only by a flash light (a big one). Photo was smudged in Photoshop, the eye was dodged a little bit and the green was accentuated.

That's about it. Hope you like it.

Great mood lighting. Does the symbol on his face represent the dragon???

Nice shot and lighting. Good job! - Personally, I would have preferred to see the shot composed with the nose in the center, leaving an a larger void at right which I think would have added a touch more mystery.

like the concept, I'm sure you'll hear this tons, but it's a little too dark around the dragon symbol which I would think is the subject. That doesn't mean I don't like it..because I do.

I wonder if this is going to be one of those pictures that gets the "does it fit into the category" comment. I like it though - very much. The only crit is the burned out area above the eye. It may not be like that on the original so apologies if it isnt. Therefore 7 not an 8. I think it is an interesting use of the symbol (assume it is the symbol for dragon). Shame the face is not a tad more oriental looking.

Very cool and unique shot for this challenge. I'll assume the symbol stands for dragon based on your title (since I haven't masterd the chinese language yet) :-)
I really like this, the lighting is good as well as the composition.

great idea. Love the color of that eye. The lighting works perfecly, very dramatic and transforming. Seems like the picture could be a bit sharper tho. 8

Strongest entry by far for me - superb use of light and, just as importantly, shadow. Very enigmatic.

Well done... my #1 (10) pic, very imaginative! while I was running around trying to find a bloddy animal... you were thinking out side the square. Great image.
