I think that with all that gold on your face it would be hard not to get a glare from the lighting. If it wasn't there and the image was a tad brighter I think this would be an outstanding shot. Good luck with the image.

Gold is good. Your hands make it feel more like a 'play' or 'drama'. The light might be a little bright but not enough to ruin a great shot. Nicely done. BB

I love the gold with dark background.

This is an excellent concept. Execution is good, but the hotspots are a little too hot in comparison to the darker right side of the photo.

Yaa I heard old is gold. You must be aging.

The things people put themselves through... :)

Good job on this. I suspect after all the trouble of painting yourself, you took lots of different ones, so I will be anxious to see the outtakes and/or a series or collage when the challenge is over. In this one, the hands don't work for me. Still an easy 6 though.

Did you paint yourelf ? I cannot imagine the clean-up needed after this.

Nice work on this shot. I can't imagine how long it took to get all the paint done, and how difficult the lighting was. It had to have been reflecting like crazy, but you toned it down very nicely. Well composed and lit. Nice work.
