Was in mono, sorry Hugh I deleted cause I didn't like how the Z looked. I've run out of pictures to upload because it's been raining everyday and really cold. So this is it.

I like this shot. I really liked the mono as well and think others would appreciate that selective coloring. Maybe you could add it to this posting as a variation.

I just caught your previous one Sandy where you mentioned about Zorro wearing earrings.
It is not for us to say how the guy dressed up in the privacy of his villa !!
Good shot.

Would be good to see the mono, but picked up on the nice bit of selective toning work, and that is not easy. A great piece of work Sandy - hope the weather improves for you. Maybe you should be coming down under lol..Jo

I like this Sandy, a most unusual self portrait, though I have no idea what all the above comments are referring to with regards to selective colour!

Striking self portrait , like the "gritty" feel to the mono conversion just a little more than colour, Colin

After long delibearation I go for V2 the mono with the red Z wins the day for me anyway, nice work Sandy, it's always good to review older images and not just shoot fresh.
