This is my wife Wendy with a paper moth (cut out from the original movie poster) balanced on her lips while she was laying on the floor. Light source is one single 500W halogen worklight - home depot style.

I shot this for the Silence II challenge but it was impossible for me to pull it off within the basic rules. The result was pretty good I thought so I hate to 'waste' it and entered it for January FS instead.
I realized after I completed the picture that this had already been done in DPC a bit over a year ago in the Scene it II challenge so I hope that doesn't deduct too much from the score. My fingers are crossed that this doesn't tank...

Hey this reminds me of that movie... silence... um... oh! Silence of the Lambs! That's it. Outstanding job - wrong challenge if you cared about your score. ;-)
