The fairest of them all

Look at the images to the right and pick the one you find most attractive.

I know, they are all dashing. But many psychological studies have suggested that we find faces with more symmetry (as well as faces closer to the “average” face) to be more attractive. Also, it seems more attractive people get higher student ratings. And men with symmetrical faces produce more orgasms in their female partners. All to say: it’s good to be symmetrical.

The above images are a 5 minute hack job, and I suspect that the uncanny symmetry (particularly lighting effects) leads two of these images to be creepier than the third…
