    That's it- Thanks!

    Thanks Roger. I'm having some problems with when I lighten up the original too much they come out washed looking on the print. If I lighten up the reduction for the internet I end up going into more processing playing with details. I'm trying to find a happy medium.

    Thanks Beth. I truly hate titling photos, especially my anthropomorphics. I like to see if people can see what I did without giving it away. and try not to mislead by incorrectly naming them. I guess names are a necessity of the web. My clumsy attempt here was to imply that a soul was suffering the fate of a curse by being forced into a rock for all eternity.

    The lighting and vignetting forces you right to the face on this one, no need to look around for the subject. But once there, you must look deeply to see the agony and such a look of dispair.

    Nicely done.
