    Excellent clever photo and a bit too gross to be able to like it.

    Thank you all very much :-) .

SteveBee - I did consider a closer crop but wanted to show the full 360 degree wrap of my head. By cropping the back of my head off I thought I wasn't showing the technique to it's full potential.

dk - Thank you so much for the 'look too good to be road-kill' comment. It kind of cancels out the 'Grotesque' and 'Difficult to look at' comments below ;-) .

    Very creative and I like your sense of humor. I would suggest cropping in from the sides not quite to the ears would make the effect even better.

    You look to be good to be classified as road-kill. Fun. creative and technically sound

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments (yes even the "kind of grotesque" one ;-) ). I'm delighted that all my hard work was worth it! :-D . I hate using Layers, but this time I couldn't see any other way. I worked on it over three days, that's how bad I am with them, but once I saw the technique I knew I had to give it a go :-) .

If anyone would like to have a go at this technique, please have a look at the link in my PP notes. I'm sorry that the clip isn't very sharp but it's the one I worked off.

    I know how hard it is to get this effect looking so clear. Well done.

    This is technically VERY well done. But it is kind of grotesque and I find it difficult to look at. Still in my TT
