    If this is supposed to tell what sort of person you are, then I am worried!! Very good technically though.

    Thanks Old Finn.....I think! ;-) .

Elliot - I was happy with the way the lighting turned out. I was just standing under our kitchens single strip light.

Thanks to the rest of you too for your honest and generous comments :-)

    Like the idea and the creative impulse that lead to it. Sure that you labored to make the transition on right side of forehead, but think I would have left more of external, non-skull dominate the area. As it is, it's a distraction from an otherwise well-done portrait.

    Thank you all for the wonderful complimentary comments. It did take me quite some time to do as I am very much a beginner when it comes to layers. I hardly ever use them.

    Creepy and beautifully taken. Your melding of the two images is very well done and makes the point about our mortality forcefully.

    Great concept, very well executed. A bit hard to look at, though that was probably your intention.

    Most unusual. Nicely done. I have tried blending layers in the past and it is not easy. You have done a great job.
