Not expecting a whole lot from this. Might do better in another kind of challenge, but it's what I have this week. What I am hoping to do is to have the voter think the quarter face was digitally created, when it was actually a bust that does look that way, similar to this one on Amazon. Probably not what was expected, but perhaps it will be visually strong enough to hold it's own.

Post-challenge notes:
Quite pleased with how this one did. A 6+ and the comments tell me it had strong appeal for many folks.

Awesome Spiffy, I gave you an 8, but should of been a 10, grows on you.

8 from me. I like how you messed with it.

It's a very appealing picture, but I'm not quite sure why :-)

Very different from the one on Amazon! Nice effects and processing. I like your version better. :-D

So hard to tell if real or fake but I will guess real. Very cool image. Love the contrasts - I'm kind of assuming this is a reflection - if not, maybe I was fooled after all.

I'm thinking this is photoshopped. Beautiful image.

Forceful and blunt. Real.

This looks blatantly photoshopped, so I'm guessing real, just to be a smart aleck. =P

This stands on its own. Outstanding. A or B? It doesn't really matter.

There's something powerful about this. I'm not a huge fan of the weird and obscure and here's the but; but this piques my curiosity. Is it graffiti? A portrait with texture overlay? Who is it? Why did you do it? And so on. An odd 8 for the 'posthumous' in me...somewhere :)

Oh, I love this. I think it is a photo of a sculpture with a 'scratched' overlay. So, because of the overlay, I'd say NOT REAL. Of course, you could have used a scratched filter or piece of glass to accomplish this, so I'm not at all sure.

A photograph of an art-piece? doesn't look manipulated to me...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Just bizarre enough to be real. Photo of art on a wall or stone facade?

This is a very cool image. Dark and ominous. I'm going to say this is a real statue with some texture overlays. I might be wrong about that, and I'd be glad either way. It's a neat image.

Now that I see it I really like it.

Not real but artistic and interesting.

I really like this! It makes me think of Anselm Kiefer...

Spectacular digital art, but most decidedly in the wrong challenge.

ETA - I interpreted the challenge to be of a "place" (scene), but after looking through more images, it appears "scene" can be anything.

cool image, looks like a rainy night, wouldn't want to meet this person in a dark alley. Like the balance of light and shadow in the image.
