[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my contribution to the theme.

I single image, two different facial expression. This is a self portrait made at arm lenght with a 10-24mm NIkon Zoom lens set at 10mm. Left image has been "Barrel Distorted" in CS5 while the right one was "Pincushion distorted" also in CS5. As you can see, PP can creat some unexpedted result.

Note: As we say in French: If you can't laugh at yourself, then your are not worth a much.

Hi Alain,
A nice funny double portrait of yourself. I like the distortion of the wide angle. Very impressive facial expression exaggerated with perfect PP work.
Well done for this creative contribution to the theme.

This is really a creative SP. And really funny one :d

Hi Alain, definitely a great addition to the theme and in full spirit of experimenting and having fun.. The one on the right is hilarious and actually has more detail showing. Fiona

Ha! Ha!, Hi Alain

'Shocking' image on the right that looks like high voltage! Good dual entry in the facial expressions theme & looks like you had a little fun tweaking perspective just a little! Bon weekend!

This is like a house of mirrors. Nice idea to present two different photos, well done

Salut Alain
Très bonne réponse au friday theme, marrante de surcroît et bien faite techniquement.
Au moins tu ne te prends pas au sérieux et ça aussi c'est sympathique
