This is the first time I'm posted something that I'm not that sure I like. Went for the burnt out extreme look but I'm not sure if its actually just very scary!

it scared the pants off me... LOL.

I think it's very brave and something I could never do as I much prefer to be behind the lens. I think this is really good too, I like the high-key treatment, it works extremely well and makes it more contemporary. Good shot.

There are no in-bet-weens with this effect. Either it works or it doesn't ! In this case it works well.
