OK. Here goes...

rsharp76- Achieved that penny look for sure. I like the bronze/copper look behind lincoln. Plus, you really added depth. I like the dodge and burn look of a contrasty Abe. Subtle straightening is also a nice touch. Thought the competition was over after seeing this...

NigelD- Old, faded, fun textures, B&W and the only entry that illustrated hand symmetry. The spatial relationship between hands on the original image was why i chucked it in the trash. Nice work correcting that.

Krottsky- This is awesome. I like that you have turned "selective color" on its head by having the only color in the image not the subject. Nice lens blur on the flag that simulates real depth of field while showcasing "The Link".

Frenchfx- nice crop. Sharpening looks very appropriate on my monitor. Exposure is much better than the original too.

Gen. Libeb- This is great. very clean layer masking. I like the use of artificial color a lot. Good color choices.. Lincoln has a country to keep unified, he doesn't give a #uc% about breaking fashion rules (wearing black and brown together). :)

Krewreka- Interesting rendition. Definately contrasty (problem with the original) and bold.

-Douglas-- I like this too. Getting rid of the wall was a nice touch. Has that sitting in the shadows, waiting... kind of feel to it. Another clean edit.

Yb98- Professor Charles Xabraham! He has been the missing "Linc" to the X-Men this whole time. :)
Is that an "image>adjustment>invert" (control i)?
Fun edit. I like the classic one too. That is actually how he looked that day.

I believe that it comes down to Rsharp and Nigel in the end. As Msix said, this is tough...
As much as i like Nigel's crop, the pennyesque feel also works along with the American Flag edit. Gen's creativity should also be mentioned.

RSharp you're up.

Great edits. Congrats RSharp.

Just for Historical significance I thought I would point out that the flag in the background is the proper flag (correct # of stars) that would have been flown during Lincoln's presidency.

Also looking forward to #506

Very Cool!! Thanks Dawicka, all these edits were awesome. This game is a blast. I just got in so I'll find a good picture and have it up by tomorrow. Can I use Dropbox to upload the high res file?
