    Theres some noiseand the image itself looks blown out. You prolly could of done a little better with your selective coloring i think.

    Face is very overexposed.... I hate to say it but when I first saw the picture I though it was Michael Jackson.

    and then you realized it was a real nose?

    ..I'm not a fan of this image. It is blown out and I don't really like the selective coloring. I would have done something else with this and maybe changed up the lighting in the picture.

    I like it.
    I like the starkness.
    I like the shapes and lines created.
    Not a big fan of selective colring myself, but I think it looks ok here.
    Good for you for experimentation and creativity. It doesn't always have to be a perfect exposure.

    Yes but if the exposure was off, it would be nice to nail the focus properly.

    Sorry, just not a fan of this image either. Blown out and grainy.

    Was this by chance a very heavy crop of a larger photo?

    that's what I was thinking. opinions are only subjective, who's to say, when being creative, the correct exposure, composition, etc... its an art. I do wonder what it would look like without the selective coloring though.

    I did crop this picture but only a small amount, I just thought I would experiment!
