    Hard to say with this one, as could have been an accidental pic? If not , it could either show disgust/contempt, but I think I’m picking up something in the eyes that’s showing a slight moving on from that, almost like he was disgusted but then he saw a beautiful woman that started pulling him out of his previous feelings? Just my silly observations 🙂

    Disgust or contempt that may have just been interrupted by the sight of a beautiful woman? 🙂 It’s his eyes that say the last bit 😉 but definitely disgust!

    For disgust there needs to be a crease or a deepening of the nasolabial furrow – which this image does have (in FACS terms, this is either a 9 or a 10 – or a combination of both).

    Anger is – in FACS terms – 4 (lowering of the brows), 5 (raising of the eyelids) and 7 (tightening of the eyelids) – this image also has these features (although the nose wrinkling FACS code 9 also lowers the brows).

    What do you think? Disgust, anger, or a blend of both?
