Nicely done. I like the composition in that its not the typical straight shot of the mountain and all the heads. Very good effort, especially as its hand-held

Lincoln's eyes almost look like they're real!

The colour tones of the shot makes the photo seem like a cartoon drawing, and it is clever the way the eyes have been carved for the pupils.

Thank you all for the very kind words. We have seen many pics of all the heads, I wanted to capture different looks. Its amazing how they made this happen.

Oh and sorry Baldeagle, Yes really nice shot and I too was amazed at the detail in the eyes they did for the pupil.
