January 6


Just a stab at high key where the subject is stripped
down to its most fundamental features. Metering off
of the much darker eyes blows the highlights leaving
just traces of form and in this case a hint of color
w/ a touch of masking of the Channel Mixer Adj. Layer.

Number six for the January "Minimalism" challenge.
