Challenge: Effects of SOPA (Expert Editing*)

I am getting a lot of comments on using the same picture on both sides, so please let me explain why I did so...

The left side represents us as we currently are. The right side represents us as we could be if SOPA is passed and "the man" uses it to censor us to death. We will not change, but SOPA will change who we are. Thus, using the same image represents the change that will be made for us and the ensuing results of that change.

p.s. I am going head to head with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sempermarine in this one.

***post challenge***

Very excited to get a 7 and love all the wonderful comments. Thank you all.

Even more happy that I beat ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sempermarine.

What she meant to say is, "I didn't realize your photoshop skills could make you look so cute."

Would've liked it better as a solo image of the right portrait rather than a diptych, but the stitched lips are effective, as is the rest of the processing on that half.

Great processing! But I think his mouth should have been open on the left...

It's a very good editing except for the mouth. Some shadows would make it more real.

This is a great depiction of a consequence of SOPA.
Without the freedom of speech we might as well be dead. I just wish your before picture was of a different expression from the draganized one.
