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. :)

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