Convert from RAW. Then in PSP X2, crop, levels, curves, USM, heavy-duty noise removal, resize, JPG.

This was a guy sitting next to me in a hotel lobby playing with his cell phone. His reflection was pretty interesting in the piano in front of me. I sat the camera in my lap, set the timer and stood real still, as the ambient lighting required a quarter second exposure.

Very cool looking. The "out of the box" crowd ought to really like this one.

Really like this, with the long face (plus, it reminds me of a joke :-). Only thing that might improve it for me is a bit more texture. It seems quite neat-imaged, especially around the face.

Not bad... you do seem to have captured a mood, a feel, a moment, beyond the usual visual contact. However, the image is a bit hard to "read" and somehow feels a bit "incomplete" to me... 7 points.

I'm sorry, but I just don't get it. I do like the contrasting colors.

lol good thinking. You'd have got lots of bewildered comments, but for your title.
