I gave this a 7, and would have scored it a little higher if it were more precisely symmetrical (e.g. rotated about 2 degrees clockwise). Excellent lighting, and I like the noise. Underrated, IMHO.

Thanks, Jutilda. I thought it would score higher, too. It certainly garnered more comments than any of my other photos. I'll keep working on my processing technique.

What a crock. I do not get this group of voters. I loved this.

not keen on the amount of noise, but like this image's look overall.

With this POV your head almost creates a triangle with your chin. It feels like a high ISO image, yet not too high. BB

VERY Dr. Caligui-esque.

I know the look (!) and you will know why after the challenge is over ;)
Technically very good. Post process is also very good. I like the duo colors and composition. Good job :)

This is a scary look. They eyes are amazing.

Umm, the stare looks penetrating and pointed, rather than icy! Anyway, who cares for the title! I like the bluish effect

Great look. The lighting really is great, and composition is right on. Love the pose and editing is spot on for the look your going for. Nice work.

I LIKE it!!! It's strong. ..in-your-face. . .and has a very cool texture to it! Good Luck!

This is great. I like the sinister approach. I like the perspective and lighting and how it shadows certain areas of your face. GREAT eyes. If I were to change anything, I might have you less close to the background. Well done. 7
