I reviewed this photo in last 10 minutes and felt that my face skin is not smooth. It's too late to retouch it now. XD

[Jun. 2nd, 2010 01:19:14 AM]

I reviewed this photo again. This time I felt the color of my face is strange. At the same time, my free study entry is getting hammered so that I am losing the confidence of my photography skills and creativity. Ah~ I'm going to be crazy, what's the matter with me? XD

After the challenge:
The score is nice. Thanks the voters. :)
The idea is "Break the limit! Realise the energy and creativity!"
I wanted to simulate the car front light projecting on me, so I kept the sharp shadow on the pillar, but it seems too sharp for some people. :P

I used a bare speed light from left to simulate the car front light and another speed light with soft box from right.

Congrats on the finish! There is a little oddness about the color of your face, I see it too. Another bummer this wasn't during the season for us lol.

Great light and good timing.

I think it will look better without that shadow on the column. Second flash lighting the wall might work.

When I was much younger we played that game but we called it run before you get caught. Cool image.

That's neat. The HDR isn't my cup of tea, and the light's a tad harsh at the shadow, but it works elsewhere. Different self-portrait, nicely done. 7

I like HDR when over done - but not this over done. Still it's a great shot and gets a 6 from me.
