Glowing Head

By SH87
This glowing head caught my eye and just thought i'd see how it would turn out against a black background.

The only mod done to the image is a crop.

The head looks fine, Simon, it fades nicely into the black background and is eye-catching (excuse the pun), with interesting patterns and texture. However, it needs some sort of manipulation to make it more captivating, and I have done 3 modifications to show you some very simple ideas, which you could work on, improve, and generally be creative with.
If you haven't tried manipulations, simply shoot the head leaving space to the top and right, as this is the area into which the head is looking and, as it stands, it is too cramped and confined. If it is yours, or if you have further access to it, place it on a reflective surface and capture it with a reflection. Or you could place something top right against the background, perhaps a butterfly or something more amusing, showing the head looking up at it. It's a great subject and you could have hours of fun with it.

This one works for me. A balloon? Agree, a bit more space or some context might be good (or might not be?!) If it's a balloon, a couple of people slightly lit in the foreground would be perfect for me...
