An excellent effect. Round the side of the head is good, perhaps getting it to light the mouth would improve it a bit.

Like the concept, maybe some light on the eyes is missing. Good job!

Unusual abstraction. As art, it's pretty cool. As a photograph, I don't honestly care for it a whole lot. good luck anyway, I'm only one vote. - Inspzil

Very hard to see the face. Wouldn't have known it was a face if hadn't seen the eyes as was getting ready to close it. Don't like it at all.

Hey, nice shot. I saw this one on your site. I like the laser thingy. Jubei
10/21/2002 09:23:00 PM
Quite interesting and really neat. I like how there are yellow lights in the pink lighting. It outlines your face well. Realy nice angle and framing/cropping. I like the focus. Very nice. Focus was my main set back in this challenge, so I have to admire the in focus shots. Nice job with this one. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

I don't know what you used for a light source, but it made an awesome outline. Excelent shot. 10 wingy

I love the way the subtle hint of the eyes appear.

Definately this photo took some practice to get the light uniform and framing the face the way it did. Nice effect

slow shutter speed and someone projecting a laser over your face?? good idea, well implemented.. I bet you'll get some people asking for this to be Disqualified as they wont take the time to think about how it was done... well done.. 8
