self porty. This was fun! I hope it does pretty good...I worked really hard on it. ;)

***WOW!!! My first ribbon! I'm so excited! Thank you so much, everyone...for all your wonderful comments and votes. I would never have been able to do something like this without being a part of the DPC community for the past year and a half. Thank you, THANK YOU!

And a big thanks to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/5112.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/5112.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Ursula for being my mentor. :)

To answer ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Posthumous's question, I took the picture in my house with one light coming down at an angle to create the same shadows as the picture. The butterfly was the same moth from the poster, I just printed one out and taped it over my mouth. I overexposed it a bit. In processing, I clipped out the eyes and butterfly. I turned it to grayscale, then duotone. I used a lot of curves, added some grain...did some burning, cloning of specks on the face, some hair in the way... I added the eyes and butterfly back in, and increased saturation- used some selective color...sharpened... I may be forgetting some steps...but that was basically it. ;)

Congratulations on your first ribbon and a new pb. This is really a great picture. The texture really makes the picture that much spookier.

11/12/2007 09:17:50 AM
Magen, congrats on your first ribbon! Here is to many more to come! Unlike my shot, I like your version better than the original.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2007 09:15:30 AM
I'm one of your fours. This looks nothing at all like a photo to me...or a scene from a movie...although I didn't vote it down for that. It makes a great poster, though, and you did a great job in post processing. Just way too much pp for me.
Adding: Just way too much pp for me for a photo contest.

The winner!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2007 07:32:43 PM
This is quite fun and fairly well put together. I would have liked to see a bit more balance, the image seems to fall moreso on one side than the other. but a very nice job all the same.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2007 07:11:43 PM
Beautiful representation/duplication of this infamous poster/marketing program. Very well done. The noise is just right and the tones are terrific. The bug looks a tad bit on the "papery" side (cut/paste), but it's a very minor distraction. Excellent work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2007 08:09:21 AM
This is good, but is a title and not a scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2007 11:58:03 PM
The composition just isn't compelling or in any way pleasant.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2007 04:32:03 PM
Wow! Beautiful copy of the movie poster! 10 for me! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow great job reminds me of the actual poster well done psart 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2007 06:30:16 AM
this is my pick for the blue, it's amazing. the editing is spot on. it looks just like the cover. i really hope voters don't get trollish on this since it's not a 'scene' from a movie but rather a cover. i gave it a 10. great job!

Excellent. A very accurate reproduction of the poster.

Hate the dang movie :) Good eyes, bug looks fake. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2007 10:22:30 AM
Wow .. that is fairly accurate. I went to imdb.com to compare. The eyes of the person used are a bit wider, but in a way bring more to the photo than the original. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2007 07:43:07 AM
Nice

11/07/2007 07:57:27 PM
Perfect! you didnt even have to put a title to it.
the grain is awesome
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2007 07:35:27 PM
Excellent, one of my favourite films as well. Imagine you might get shot down by the DNMC parade as this technically doesn't recreate a scene but you get high marks from me.

This one is pretty cool....

11/07/2007 01:53:37 PM
Excellent reproduction of the poster it self. I don't particularly remember the image in the movie though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2007 11:56:11 AM
well done shot, but this is no scene from the movie , it's the poster
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2007 09:27:08 AM
I just googled the original image, and this is about as close as you can get. It must have taken ages and lots of work to get this just right. Great post-processing as well. I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2007 09:14:36 AM
Man - that is perfect. I thought of how would you do that and you did nail it. It really isn't a scene from the movie, but the poster they used for advertising, but you sure got that right.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2007 12:41:17 PM
This is almost TOO well done - I've spent the last 10 minutes look to see if you just entered a photo of the poster! Anyways, I don't think you did but your attention to detail is outstanding - the shadows, grain, catch-lights, colour, expression... unbelievable!

I hope the DMNC police don't get upset because its a poster and not a scene as such. Its amazing - 10 from me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2007 11:37:35 AM
I think you nailed this one. I mean its identical to the poster. Nice work.

WOW this is a good replica from what I remember it. If I look at the actual I might vote lower so letís just go from my mind.
Excellent job. 9

Incredibly true to the original. In act, I had to find the original to see if it was stolen :P I like that this version has her eyes a bit more frightened. I hope this ribbons, you did a fantastic job with this.

11/05/2007 01:28:22 AM
this seems like it was just a little too easy for you, i'm guessing you cut and pasted the moth?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2007 12:55:10 AM
Excellent composition and good capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2007 12:25:05 AM
well, what to do here. It's not a scene, but a poster, but you did a pretty good job. I'm going to assume the moth is the only cutout here. I'll give it a neutral 6.
