I think it's interesting - the flawless inexpressive half-face, the odd shapes and parts of shapes that seem strangely floating over the face. It's n original composition, and it makes me think and wonder, which is an equivalent to success.

Excellent Matt !!! I have seen this style in the past and at first I wasn't very excited about it. However, I have a different opinion now and this image has pushed me into that direction. I would consider this one to be 'thinking outside the box'. I do believe if sometimes we think in those terms it will enhance the skills we seek. Again, nice work.

Thanks, Minnie. I went back to the mall to follow up on your suggestion and posted, back and forth with Linda, one shot of the rafters, finally settling on one that I was originally intending to post but demurred, thinking it was too dark. Go with your first impulse, I guess.

Yes, I thought the face was flawless and vacuous, a statement in itself about glamour and our concern for appearances. The little shapes seemed to float above the image for some curious reason. I liked that. Thanks. Matt

Thanks, Dave. Your comment encourages me to experiment more. If anything pops, I'll post. Matt
