I've been doing a bit of tidying up around here recently, promotional wallpaper, new avatar and now a lovely new iD. Probably not as interesting as the old one, but out with the old and in with the new for 2005!
Sorry but this was done quite a while ago and I really can't remember what pics I used. The background was about 7/8 photos blended together though so you might not recognise the bits if you do see them on sxc.
This is really cool, the colors of your face and hair compliment the background nicely and the placement in relation to it is excellent. I'd say what really pushes this into the realm of spectacular is your use of photomanipulation, especially with the circles and faint white lines near the top which werent expected but are very much needed. The curved border is especially interesting. This is probably the best ID I've seen yet.
