I'm losing my head also trying to focus on the image! nice processing it really adds value to this shot
E Etomi: Thanks Mal glad it doent look overprocessed.
Wild and crazy. Someone's lost their head! Was that motion blur in camera (zoom/rack-focus?) or post?
E Etomi: It was post processing. I used radial blur

This is a perfectly valid humorous shot and the angular treatment was exactly the right way to go. Striking colours too. Very well done.
E Etomi: Thanks Chunter

Sure different and i like.
A higher res version of this picture may have been nicer. I also think a higher shutter speed would have reduced the motion blur that is visible around the arms. It is otherwise a nice picture.
