It looks like you've heavily HDR'd it, which works brilliantly with the title, & creates an almost dream-like quality. The irony of which was not lost on me. Smile

If I were being hyper-critical, I'd say a different expression would have worked better, as the one you had is neither one thing nor the other. Perhaps agonised to go with the insomnia, or happy/enthused, if you like vacuuming, but this one really doesn't say anything.

Still deserves the POTW for the effort involved, & the very clever execution, both in camera & PS.

What a thrill it was for me to wake up (I slept a little last night) and to see that I received the POTW. Thank you Pete!

And thank you Paul for the UA. Smile

Thanks again everyone for the comments.

Thanks Dave for the critique. It was my goal to portray insomnia in this image by having my eyes wide open but no expression on my face, because I have felt somewhat like a dazed walking zombie lately. There is not any HDR applied to this image, however, I did cross process most of the yellow tones in the image to blue in order to portray darkness.

For those who are concerned, no neighbours were awakened during the shooting of this image.
