    CC please. I'm thinking about doing a series of portraits in this format with a few variations. Let me know what you think. How can I make this image and the others more successful?

    Here's the second portrait I just finished.

    That's really creative and fun. My first thought was I'd like to see it without the lines, but then I thought that the lines are what is making this picture unique instead of freakish. I would love to see a series like this. It is very Picasso-ish (is Picassoish a word??)

    the first one works because of the symmetry, but the second one does not.

    Perhaps adding a 1 pixel border around each frame,

    I agree, my problem with the second one is how harsh the difference is between the two photos at the top. Also I agree with RM as the lack of symmetry here is a problem with it. Also, the last thing I'm really noticing is that the top right photo has pretty much nothing in focus, which is really bothering me.
