Wow, this is amazing! Love your work man! You bring more to the table than just processing and images! You bring a concept! (like you didn't already know that) :0)

Very mysterious...looks like the cover of a detective novel or movie.

I love your work! Good job with creating a mysterious atmosphere with this one. The eyes are very compelling.

You are mysterious Mr. Persel, if that is indeed your real name. Once again great processing.
8 Mar 2007 3:25pm
Wow! Nice to meet you here, just like a character of a black movie!

Interesting, how did you do it?
8 Mar 2007 10:37pm
@Ben: 1. contrast adjustment
2. midnight sepia filter (NIK)
3. dodge a few areas
4. desaturate slightly
5. fog filter (NIK)
Such a smashing London in the smog type image...
Criminally well done..:)..Dear Watson..

@Steve H: Thanks Steve ... especially considering London is my favorite place on the planet. :-)
Looks like the old comic book character "The Shadow": "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men...?"

Brilliant! It did cross my mind that this pic reminds me of Peter Sellers in inspecteur garb

yet another fabulous image - I'd love to know what you do for a day job! No doubt your creativity is a major aspect of whatever you do! Your ability to view the world from outside of the square provides for thought provoking captures of life..

@ginger: Actually, I'm director of research for a traumatic brain injury rehabilitation company in the US. A very analytical job. However, I'm also in charge of our company website, newsletters, publications and educational materials which provides some creative outlet. But ... photography is my primary artistic endeavor. :-) Thanks. Craig
well - you got me there! I love that quirky aspect of life where our preconceptions are inevitably twisted by our own perspective... and how good it is to expose them to another's reality. Your work sounds as though an artistic outlet would be essential.. and you easily could find yourself exploring another profession if you so choose!

@ginger: Thanks for your confidence in my work! :-))
ak ak. You're make me scare, Craig...;-)
