Thanks to those that liked this.

Despite how it looks, there wasn't that much processing on this, especially 'dodging and burning' - it is mostly "shadows and dust" (well, dirt really, but I am very fond of that line).

I like the genetic side of this and the likewise 'human eyes'.

This 'close to human gene' couple were being sold at a market for... oh, probably companions.. yeah.. something like that. Partly how the title came to be.

Well, I was one of your three 10's, so you KNOW I liked it. Matter of fact, I like it so much it makes my heart hurt :) Wish it were me handing out the awards for this challenge :)

I like the composition, the tight framing, and the colour palette. A little over-sharpened for my taste.

I kind of like pigs, but don't find them particularly endearing. Yet I must say, the expression and pose really make this quite beautiful in its own way. Nice capture and fun title.

The composition is excellent here, I love the line of the three eyes and the dark curve where their faces meet :)

Ironic (and funny) that this came up for me in voting right after a similarly posed image of a just-married couple. I like it. Very endearing.
