' bear_music: Given that I'm a fan of pod-people movies, living dead stuff, this actually has a pretty strong appeal for me: but I can't escape the nagging suspicion that this isn't how you intended it to be seen. If it *is* what you were after, then props to you for achieving it. This has a sort of demented-genius feel to me, even to the point of the very odd sharplines (what else to call them, dark halos?) that define the subjects.

' digifotojo: The softness is a bit over the line to the point of interfering with the elements. I think the message conveyed here would have been stronger had the PP been less invasive.

' Les_feck: I like the composition, but, other than covering flaws, or perhaps more likely to qualify for this particular challenge, I don't see what was gained by your processing choice(s).

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' chromeydome: I have mixed feelings about this: I really like the basic composition and concept here. The processing works for and against me here, though. I like the look of it on the hat, the clothes, but it really doesn't work for me on the skin. If there is a way to selectively apply the processing to everything but the skin, this might really sing.

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' BAMartin: There is something very intimate about this photo, but I have to agree that the processing distracts from an otherwise gorgeous photo.

Really prominent manufactured processing.

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' tnun: I am quite taken with the sweetness of this. In the matter of processing effects my inner jury seems to have abandoned me, and I can only think that this wouldn't be what it is without whatever it is you did. I do however think this would be a stronger composition if you cropped off the top of the guys head to where the top of the window or ceiling meets it.
