This is actually part of a series that I'm working on. Two separate themes based on one idea which are the five senses we all possess. This one is based on you Sight. I have already done the other one, but it's posted on my flickr site. Wasn't sure if I should post it here. The other theme is more of a Grunge/Macabre style where as this one is more editorial with one or two accented colours. In this one I wanted the colour to be red.

Only manipulation was making the washed out white background. I was hoping for a really sunny day. Since I don't have a studio I use window light (really brightened up) as a white background. Today was a cloudy day Sad I then used an off camera flash to light up my face.

All comments appreciated. This is going to be an on going series for me. A bit challenging, but I look forward to it Smile

one of your best images since reaching, great strong graphic qualities with the strong colours and simplified tones, good close crop, very effective

Powerful, contemporary, artistic, and vastly underated..
