Works well and I'm happy to accept the blame Smile Maybe next time I win the B&W weekly challenge I'll set self portraits and then you'd have a week to sort something out Smile

I must admit I similarly get inspiration from the 1hr challenges etc. but only have the light bulb come on in my head two days later! Smile Glad I'm not alone in that.

A really well conceived, executed and processed image. Well impressed! As mentioned above ... it is a cracker Smile

Thanks to Sandy & Moira for the skin care advice.....but I do use a moisturiser, but it's applied from the inside !.....I prefer the 'Glenfiddich' brand, as it isn't so greasy; I can recommend it !.Wink

Haven't had time to visit for a while but when I post something new you always seem to take the time to have a look at my latest effort........and for that you at least deserve my visit to see what you've been up to!

And, oh, I really like this! Mad but very creative. Crazy but so well screwed together. Well-done!

You're a talented chappie!
