got this idea from Leo Vicari, he posted his photo on the street photo challenge, I decided to use the same concept on my self + add Dave Hill efect.
so it's kind of self portrait.
I have asked his permition and he said go ahead.
I hope he will like it.

To get that Dave Hill affect you need to use a lot of strong lighting. If you have ever seen how he sets up you will notice that he uses a lot of lights and just about full strength. He then stops down the camera and applies a PWL and USM affects to achieve that look.

In this I would say that you had the right idea but you lack the lights needed for the correct effect. On my screen your image is too dark and doesn't really have that Dave hill look but keep working on it and you will get it.

Congrats on 159 out of 413.

This falls a little flat to me - but in a way that I kind of like. The artist seems almost like he's painted on to the wall.

Nice, feels a little dark. I love the purple colors in the back ground.

I like the pov and the lighting in this as well as the fact the can is actually spraying ... hope you didn't get any on your camera!

Seems like I've seen this before. Nice capture anyway. Like the low angle.
