Sixth Sense

This is actually only one image. The idea came up in the bathroom, seeing the condensed mirror.
The orange glow is the reflection of the shower curtain.
The "skull"? I don't know. Didn't see it when I took the picture. It came up developing in Lightroom.
Postprocessing: only some (a bit more extreme than usual) shadows and highlights, and crop to square.

This image is made for the Totally Informal Thursday Transglobal Challenge on March 6th 2008 -"Something Sinister".
