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.

Great shot love the detail I would like to see this in mono
6 Oct 2011 12:41AM
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

All the way south to New Mexico then Sandy.
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.

Like this a lot (V1 for me, although V2 is fun...) As Francesco says, it's the sparkling eye.

Real cool! Love that glint in the eye. Can't pick a favourite because they're both quite different.

Not sure which version I like best. I used to be very indecisive but I'm not sure about anything these days

V1 thinks I. The glint does it better there.
V1 is excellent. Nice shot. Amazing.

Very odd, where you come from when it rains people run out of photos while where I come from people start to capture photos... :\ Good self portrait (?) like the shadow on the right side of the face.
