Jeb, I'm back with a more serious comment. Both as a self-portrait and also as a general portrait, this photo actually has a lot to say. Whether you meant it or not, it tells a story about anonymity, about not feeling comfortable in one's own skin, about being invisible to the throngs around you.

Jeb, this is one terrific photo. Carries a tone of interest and good use of textures!

Jeb - this is pretty darn cool! What works especially well for me is the busy pattern of the wallpaper behind contrasted with the plainness of the wrap on your face.

Hey, I gave this a 7. Good job! Also, you helped me reach one of my goals just in the nick of time!

Hmmm, a new face-firming technique? Actually, Jeb, this is a very interesting picture.

Return of the Mummy?! I don't recognize the hat or the wallpaper enough to have a guess at who this is. The whole situation here seems humourous enough, cool photo. BB

Add some motion panning by moving the camera, or just take a long exposure shot so to add blur, and your idea will be finalized. As it is, its a half baked good idea.

After 4567 years, you still afraid to show your face mummy? LOL Nice background, I like b&w and shadows. I only wish you would show some more face... actually any part of your face, instead of covering it all. Is the whole thing out of focus?

funny idea but it seems a bit blurry or oof.

You have some interesting textures here.

Really cool concept...I feel like you should had made the right side of your face (left in the photo), a bit darker to make your nose stand out a bit more.

This is a very interesting 1... Not sure of the face is in focus, BUT I think this shot still works, the fact that you covered your face and aded the hat with that patterned background reminds me alot of a surrealist approach and I really like that 8

I like your idea, but fear that a lot will not like it due to no facial features. However it is still a SP, so nice work.

Cheater! But it does make for an interesting shot!

Clever idea. Needs a better background and sharper focus on the face instead of the background. But then, I suppose it was hard for you to see to focus... :-)

That is just too funny, good for you, you made me smile.

I didn't know the Invisible Man was on DPC! But I think it would have been better w/ the hat in better focus rather than the cutain.

Oh...I used to LOVE the Invisible Man series on TV (hmmm, I'm maybe older that I thought ;-)

Looks like posthumous. Just a guess... =)

And therefore a bad portrait. Blurry too.
