    Ha, funny composite, Sw1tchFX, I am sure our bobbly Chris does not really look this symmetrical :D. No one does, which is why mirrored photos of just one half of our faces look so strange.

    Good pic to begin with, Chris! I like the light.

    But here's the thing, doesn't the composite look convincing?

    I love it. That's really funny... I think it's a little to wide but none the less still pretty cool.

    The lighting is interesting, so is the composition. I would like to see a black and white version, as I am a big fan of black and white portraits. Well done.

    Well here's an example

    [​IMG]

    It's pretty close just a little wide... Granted like LaFoto had said our faces aren't completely symetrical but ya... I still like you picture. My dad said that somewhere he heard that if you mirror the left side of you face that you look evil, and if you mirror the right side you look happy... It could have been left evil, right happy or left happy and right evil I can't really remember which way at the moment... I'm might try that with this picture
