It's been a long week, during which I've felt the need to prop my eyes open with matchsticks on several occasions, of which this shot is an example (minus the matchsticks) ;-)

Oh, and in case you're wondering about the post-processing: I used the channel mixer to 'extract' the blue channel (which radically darkens skin tones), added a vignette, and increased the contrast with the Curves tool.
