Ok, I know this one is lousy and shouldn't be shown to anyone, anywhere, ever, I know it's boring and unattractive and yes, I know I'm gonna be in the bottom 3 entries, very possibly wielding the brown....but come on, a screaming-faced stone! I may be a bit daft but this struck me as being pretty damn nifty, hehe. I do so love humerous shots, unpopular though they may be. I found this little guy on the beach while I was out getting a shot for another challenge.

Editing included cropping, resizing, cloning out a small imperfection, sharpen and then burning just a tad in the hollows of the 'eyes' to emphasise them a little.

I rather like this shot ... indeed who could resist a screaming face stone? I think cropping it more on the left, taking it right up to the side of the 'face' would have made it more dramatic.

Interesting but seems dull. I might have not made the flash go off... (the reflecting light seems to make it unnatural.

That looked like poo at first glance. I see it now!

the image seems to be very dark with little contrast in shades or tones to really emphasize the O created out of nature - but it is a very cool rock
