Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Tamron 90mm F2.8 + timer + IR remote. The mini rubix cube was hung with string. GIMP for post editing. Curves for color balancing. Added a blue layer set to Overlay. Darkened highlights.

Additional Comments
Sorry for the bad facial expression :lol: My wrist look weird :XD: Resizing the photo made the mini rubix cube's stickers look somewhat weird :/

Awesome! Just one thing, maybe a little less satuation and more graininess for the rubix cube - then its retro ;D

Feels like a slight difference of colour-scheme between the cube and you, but that's just something with the focus, I guess.

Love it! I adore how much you work with your hands. It's great.

I've never actually finished wunna those. I've seen people do it in less than two minutes and it frustrates me.
Cool concept, good picture.

I think your hands/wrists look slightly odd partly due to the perspective (hands much closer to camera than face) as well as the crop.
Great set up nonetheless!

If both your hands are in the shot...what were you pressing the remote with?!

I used a self timer with the remote. So my remote triggered a two second timer which leaves me enough time to drop the remote and pose ;)

Nice. I need to do a few more self portraits soon - I've just got a camera that allows me to use my remote again! :)
