or... 'Burnt to a crisp' Either fit! :lol:

Result was intentional and produce in camera. only pp was levels, LAB curves,and sharpen.

My intention was not necessarly to try some high key, but an extreme emphasis of what is important in a portrait... the eyes. Quite often, beautiful portraits are deemed beautiful even if some of the face is OOF, as long as the eyes are in focus. So, in this case, almost everything is clipped except for the eyes.

Result was obtained by spot measuring the frame of the sunglasses (wich are polarized btw)

Anyway tell me what you think... go or no go ;)
*warning extreme clipping ahead, may want your protect your eyes!:p

I'm sorry, but it just doesn't work for me. This is one of those photos that you either love or hate, and there's no in-between.

No go for me. It just looks like a super overexposed image to me.

I actually see that as a compliment. It's more of an artsy-fartsy shot than a picture perfect portrait.

Thank you for your input, at least you were honest.

Too much. Seems to be more on the graphic art side of the spectrum.
