Thank you very much for the nice comments and high scores. I appreciate the ribbon very much. This image wasn't as difficult as some have implied. I simply took close up shots back to back in identical positions of my face, and then my hands covering my face. I then put the two images into one Photoshop document using Layers, then blended them together in multiply mode. Once the images were aligned and merged, I just had to polish it up with dodge and burn to 'cut around' the shape of the hands and adjustments to the contrast until I got the right amount of detail in the two images. Again, thank you so much for your support of my photography.

Congrats on the well-deserved ribbon! Very creative shot and shows yet again how talented you have become in your use of the camera in your photography, understanding of the many uses of the photo-editing software, but more than anything I think it shows how uniquely creative you are in your ideas for how to meet the challenge topic! Awesome job!

Awesome idea, if it was perfectly centered in a tighter crop it would be a little more powerful. Great image though!
