despite the fact that i have about 20 african masks, we went with the cutout from my son's kiddie magazine. very bravely, he posed in the cold for me. that's no why he has a cold, really. really, i tell you!

I absolutely LOVE this, and it could belong in the children's story book, or even a fantasy film....

This is the coolest photo! I love the magic and mystery of it. The green really pops out. The bug eyes take center stage but I love how it's obvious that your little one is definitely looking at you. Congrats on your new PB!

Yay! Congrats on the PB! I was one of your 10's and meant to come back and comment, but I have one of those memories that work like a sieve, lol. Wonderfully whimsical, so artistic! I adore this!!

Excellent, Christian. I love the midnight fantasy effect you created with the deep blue, and the wild setting in the trees. The mask works really well -- I would never have known it was a paper cutout if you hadn't said so. Congratulations on the top 10 placement, on the new PB, and on a great imagination!

My "best in show" despite (what I think is) mask glare you had to work with. Really otherwordly.
- Back to bump this up to a 10. :-)

Adorable. A tad bit noisy... but the composition, the idea, the model, and the colors are all wonderful.

The mask, setting, colors -- really cool shot.

I like the dark scary mood, and the 3D effect created by the forground and background bokeh. The noise and the highlights resulting from the reflected flash let the picture down a bit.

Excellent choice of background to support the overall concept. Good use of color - very strong shot here.

IT is a great image. The noise on the skin is a bit distracting. Looks like a bit to much shadows and highlights used. However, I really like the setting and expression.

I really like this one. He really looks like he could be some bug watching a house at night plotting on how to get in

This makes me smile - crazy colours and a crazy mask - but overall I think it works surprisingly well.
