Very nicely done Maryanne! I like the clarity, detail, black and white and the fact that you captured only half of the face. It has a wonderful yet disturbing feel to it. Well done! #202901

Really cool shot Maryanne! Is he looking through a hole in some screen, or did you add some sort of texture in PS? Anyway, it looks really cool!!! :) The b/w really makes his eye stand out b/c it's so light. #1020538

Maryanne C. Gobble 1/7/2005 11:26:20 AM

Thanks everyone, in response to Amanda: It really is a screen(: We were just taking a drive in the snow and found an abandoned shack with torn screens. It was the only screen photo I took, got lucky! #1020727
