I really like the composition and inventiveness of the pose. However, for my tastes, this image seems a bit dark and might benefit from an adjustment in Photoshop -- either the "curves" adjustment or the "brightness and contrast" adjustment.

Really great colours and feelings in this shot, catch light in the eyes are perfectly positioned. This is a great new direction.

Thanks folks Smile Don't expect to see many like this - the SPs minus mask etc. are a bit thin on the ground.

I appreciate it might be a bit dark - I did lighten it up to compensate for this laptop being somewhat misleading and doubtless when I view it on a pc tomorrow I'll realise I could have adjusted it a whole lot more. Then again I like hiding in the shadows Smile

It does look a bit dark to me also and the histogram suggests it is rather under exposed. I have therefore had a bash at a mod to brighten up the image although this may not be the result you were after.
Anyway it is a great pose and has a wonderful air of mystery to it.

nicely subdued light and colour give it a look of mystery.

Thanks everyone - I'll leave it up Roy!

Actually the original was fine exposure wise - it wasn't until I started messing about with the texture layers and wotnot that it started to get a bit on the dark side.

Thanks for the mod though Phil - maybe next time I'll upload the original as well for modifying if I'm feeling brave enough!
