Like it very much, but would like some explanation here. really can't make out what is real or not.
just checked your PF (1st page) and aparently this is not digitally manipulated.
bigger wow even. (sorry if my remarks sound a little stupid... really don't know too much about photography)

Description added - and I should add that the edges have been darkened using PS.

I find this fascinating and I love the tones. It seems to have a 3D look to it. I was wondering what the things were surrounding the skull before you added your description. I like this a lot

Unusual and therefor also very interesting to watch. The structures in this photo, combined with the excellent lighting, makes this a winner for me!

Thank you for the comments.

No-one knows how the bones got in the crypt (there are the remains of about 1,000 people in there, if I remember correctly). The worst thing down there were the heads with the platted hair still attached. Nice. Hardest thing about this shot was the title - original ideas were "Self Portrait, 2090AD" and "BOO!".

Scary stuff - nicely caught and the bw works superbly with this subject. Bruce.
