Excedrin Headache #57: There is a knife on my head
Lens: SMC-A 50mm f/17 Camera: K20d Photo Location: Portland, OR

Messing around with my camera and DIY beauty dish at work and got what I think is a pretty cool picture of my friend. Looks like flickr kinda degraded the image a bit but its tack sharp (as this lens always is)

Crisp and clear with good quality lighting - a worrying scene though.

This is an arresting photo - technically perfect but the pose with the knife is not exactly threatening, it's just enough "off center" to keep my attention. Very well done, in my view.

Nothing to worry about her... just shaving his eye brows... you need to do that from time to time with the big bushy ones... just a modern day cowboy!!!

Care to share this homemade dish... it seems to work well...

Lighting and image look good. Wouldn't want his elbow to slip off the arm rest though... Just sayin'
