    I don't make a great photographic subject, so felt I had to art me up a bit!

    Many don't like this sort of thing, but a least it got me in the comp. Hope some find it of merit.

    Canon G1-X
    ISO: 100
    l: 25mm
    t: 1/250
    f: 6.3
    Remote flash, head on.

    Cheers.

    Really cool effects and dead eye look completes it for me.

    Always meant to, but never got around to ask, how did you process this?
    Looks like it was worth entering :) Personally, I would've liked your straight forward face shot better. Very stark and "in your face " kind of image.
