Cool effect, interesting composition, really like the lenses. Great B&W image, excellent contrasts and tones.

Innovative put the lenses on the subject instead of the camera...Nikon might pay you handsomely for this out-of-the-box idea, Nigel.

It somehow reminds me of another blogger who has a daily picture, smartening himself up with stuff like mops, chamber pots, etc. Anyhow (you know) with the result of a general improvement.

Further line of thinking is that you can't afford two of them thingus, so that is a very good copy and paste job.

Great inspiring (inspired me to some writing) selfportrait grin
Nigel Clack: Copy and paste it isgrin If I could afford 2 D700's then I would be tempted with 2 50mmwink
Hahahaha! Very well done Nigel! I've been wearing glasses for years which explains a lot about my pictures!
Nigel Clack: Maybe but what about your twiddles???

Really nice idea! Somehow this photo reminds me of an album cover by, I think, Peter Gabriel.

It's the rise of the Borg - was resistance futile (or is my Star Trek reference futile).

I like the different view on things.
