A collaborative effort, as u can see the snakes are the common images used in 'she saw herself' , i wanted to use a different face & in the process i kinda started liking the filter effect that Tracy used, i tried to control it but i couldnt help myself, With some helpful suggestions from Tracy, & a snake named Frost (thanx to Tim,for kindly letting me take photos of his pet albino corn snake) I managed to churn this one out. what do u folks think?

Medusa never looked this good. Kudos on your choices of frame, composition, palette and light. Excellent.

Liking that alot,I love the contrast in colours between snake head and medusa head it's almost as if the life source has been pushed out of the body and at the snakes head reaches it's final breath. There is a great deal of darkness in the eye, the definitive moment in this picture-for me, it leaves me with no doubts about the visual power in your latest art works ;) Your interpretation leads to only one conclusion, those hours of churning really do yeild a great result.

I think it is very prefessional. That is incredible with the snakes and all... I really like how the snake heads look like they are glowing a little. This would make a truly awesome postcard!

i really like this one. it is similar to she saw herself, but different enough to be unique in its own way. good job.

I know i have been commenting on your work like crazy today, but this one really inspires me. I am assuming you put it together in Photoshop? I have a little knowledge of how to use the program, but nearly enough to create something like this. It's so in depth and interesting. I also really love your photography, with the blurred effects. Keep it up, I'm glad I found ya. :)
