you scare me!

By Milla
OK, so I don't expect this one will do any good lol. Planned to use it for a bigger project, it's a long way though and I might as well never finish it. At least lets have some fun then =)
What I like about this one is the eyelashes' shadow and how it crosses the eye. Rare view as my eyelashes are so damn short Tongue

Oh well, have a nice day everyone, hope I can make at least few of you to smile Smile
Thanks for your time.

Large if you dare Smile

Good angle, toning and lighting; has a sinister feel about it and leaves the viewer wondering

Lol cheers people, even tho I had loads of fun working on this one, I thought you might think 'what's that?! did she go completely nuts?' Wink
@ crazycucumber: heh, had similar thoughts about it, tried to give it an ol' movie treatment first, but I was loosing skin texture, dropped it then.

Wow people, it truly does far better than I expected, I would never call it a 'nice' shot though Wink
Of course I don't mind, Bernie, on the contrary, I really like to see the others' visions of my shots. Thanks for it, increasing the contrast brought more drama to it, and more the old movie feel imo, so yes, I do like it Smile
I'm not a football fan I'm afraid, all the best to your team tho!

Your edgy processing has given this strange shot a lot of interest. I like the effect and the image as a whole.

That shadow on the eye is fabulous. You really are developing quite a distinctive style!
