Thank you very much for your comments. My intention was to obtain a picture that can show something more intense than a simple face, emphasizing the character. Obtain that somebody look the picture, and return to look it again, to understand why he like it if he hate it. The challenge description say to be creative.

I understand this shot, and two thumbs up to you for posting it. I'm happy to see that you got a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous comment on it.

Not a very dpc-style of photography, but a creative, therefore artistic, approach.

The fist comment your received from Rebecca anticipated it:
"Gorgeous. Kudos for choosing artistry over pandering to the popular tastes."

This is fun. I like the burst of light and the processing.

I really dont know what to comment on this. Typically i dont like it but then i do like it as it holds my eye. Sometimes to find whats happening and sometimes to verify if what i am thinking is right :). I can say it is 'interesting'

Over processed.

I'm not sure what the title has to do with the image, but I like the image itself. The splatter of light in the center is almost the signpost for a narrative that is imploding in on itself.

I hate it when I burst into flames too. Is it my drugs or yours that makes this photo interesting?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think this shot over a metal surface? or just digitally post processed too much? But... I love it. Nice idea, nice lighting (with flash), unique photo.

this is very very different so far. great effect
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You've added enough texture effects that you've almost lost all detail to th image. The flash is fairly bright but not enough to totally harm the photo. I'm not a big fan of this type of image but that's not to say that others don't love it! Nice shooting. BB

I never have and probably never will appreciate shots that are so processed that they no longer resemble photographs. Sorry, call me old school...

Cool grainy effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 01:41:54 PM
Nice idea A little too much for me. Is that the flash going off into a mirror?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 01:03:01 PM
A bit too experimental for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 11:44:46 AM
Very interesting effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 06:22:52 AM
Strange, when I saw this shot my immeiate thought was 'oh no' but as I looked at it I realised that whilst it wasnt to my taste that in its own way it was a very strong image. I will be interested to read about the techniques you used in this. Good Luck

I love this, not the classic dpc shot but this is really well composed and the texture is really cool
