Chinese Demon Bust
This piece from 5th Century China would feel at home in a Wes Craven film. The eyes are amazingly powerful. The tattoo illustrations are very faded, but the original detail must have been awesome.
Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 1600, f/4.5 @ 1/40s. RAW file processed in Lightroom 3 Beta 2 and the Nik Suite of tools. I've been reading some negative criticism about the bokeh for this lens, but I think it is actually very good.
