hey, thanks for voting! I shouldn't have given LoST 8 points.... ;-)

the picture was taken in a room of "Le Meridièn" in Vienna. Cedric and the light are both standing in the bathroom, the front and the door where out of frosted glass. it also reflected lots of light to his face, that's why I had to decide if I want to have more light in the face or to remove that "alien arm" ;-) so I decided for the arm, kind of looks cool, I think. and another (small) light source was the window, the curtain was a little bit open, but only to have very few light on cedric's left side/front. post processing wasn't much: cropping, turning around, unsharp mask and curves, and a bit more saturation. actually, I hardly got such pictures straight from out of the camera, so I was really lucky. :-)))

Great artistic shot and I like the way he disappears behind the glass, the sunglasses adds to the mystery of your subject.

interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2007 03:54:23 PM
this has a very sci-fi look to it, especially the right side (thin long fingers). although i feel that the shades (sunglasses) were not needed for this shot to be effective. i like the shot nonetheless. nice work!

I love frosted glass.. Kinda secretive, but still not quite.. Hard to put it to words.
Very nice image in any case.

The left third of this shot is stunning. I have to say the other 2/3rds, while an interesting approach, sort of spoils the shot - chiefly because the arm behind the glass is distorted and looks like some sort of skinny alien tentacle.
