thanks Gunawan, unfortunately "Black metal" is not my favorite music genre ;)

One of the best Lensbaby photos I've seen in a long while (maybe because it doesn't seem so obvious that it was a Lensbaby?). Love the way the most accurate focus is on the "ornaments" and I also like the rendering of the OOF parts (subtly kinetic and painterly). The spots of color in the BG help bring the whole image to life. But most of all, I admire this as a portrait full of expression and human emotion that brings me into the world and mind of the subject while leaving me wanting to know even more about him.

yes, the pain is there, and so is the hardship and the will to overcome it! a great documentary!

It might be not about the music genre Mike, but understanding 'pain'.

thanks Elisabeth, always enjoy and appreciate your detailed comments :)

also thanks Dee Vee.

and thanks again Gunawan, guess there is no one on earth not having "pain"
from time to time. some more, others less.
but sure it could be much less "pain in life" if everyone would respect each other.
