Challenge: Self Portrait VI (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Kitchen
Date: Dec 4, 2007
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250s
Galleries: Portraiture, Water
Date Uploaded: Dec 4, 2007

Had a vision, took two hours to execute it; I'll post the result. Then took a couple of quick alternatives, which turned out much easier and more attractive, so that is what you see.
My standard beam breaker set up, minimal processing, cloned out some rogue drops and cleaned up the glass a fair bit. Clipped the black to clean the backdrop - bit of smartsharpen, crop a bit, resize etc.
I am pleased with the result but the droplet haters will no doubt be out in force. . . .
A portrait should say something about the subjetc - I think it does!

It looks like a still from the BBC's Horizon.

Congratulation on a fantastic shot, I expected it to be placed much higher. Way under-rated

Nice idea and timing with the water, not sure why but the eyes seem a little soft to me.

Great expression and take on the challenge. Very nicely lit, and I think that the drip is awesome right on the top of the glass. Well done.
