Ohhhhhh I like it

First thought was it looks like a serious sand sculpture,
sunglasses would not look out of place on the face

Great Shot .... Skippy

The eyes are in the shadow created by the head cover. So increasing the exposure for the eyes would tend to overexpose the other parts.

I guess I could have lightened it in PS, but didn't really want to. I too like the eyes darker and more dramatic/hidden.

Thanks for the comments all. I'm more into Canon's and was looking for a G10 to carry around everyday for snaps but never was into point and shoots and when Circuit city was selling new Olympus E 420 with 14-42mm kit lens for $385, which is cheaper than a G 10 at other places, I couldn't resist any more. So I'll be using my oly as a carry it around point and shoot camera. It's a bit bigger than I'd like for such use, but it is the smallest dslr around and I'm just not into composing with the lcd and prefer the responsiveness and the IQ of the dslr more.
