Went for a cinematic look using a couple of speedlights and gels. It's about quarter to five here and I'm shaving the shadow off my face..but you'll notice the shadow above me.. he never goes away (and he's rather menacing looking too).

Editing.. layers, some saturation, some dodging, burning, etc

I think this was under appreciated. I love the lighting and the tilt on this shot. It really grabs your eye.

Excellent lighting. Cool angle. Nice and sharp and good colors/tones. Good one.

Excuse me, but perhaps Ghostbusters ought to have a look at your sink. I think the tilt to the photo add a good deal to its interest.
