    Good Vic ;-). Although it’s a still image, there’s the possibility of talking (50). If we cancel out the talking, then the lips are parted (25C). There could be a tightening around the eyes (7C perhaps), and it’s suggest that the 10 would be more like an R10C? Be better for us to have a neutral to compare for a baseline 🙂

    Looking at the codes alone, does a particular emotion stand out?

  2. I could not distinguish the tightening around the eyes, or ‘pouching’ of upper media corner of infraorbital triangle … I looked for it but could not convince myself it was there … definitely a neutral and a video would assist. However, there is a slight deepening of the upper portion of nasolabial furrow, so how about we split the difference on a 10B? 🙂
    As to the emotion (with the caveats of a still pix) contempt, with some disgust. Would we call it a blend?
    (And hey, I’m studying the top half of the face now, so go easy. LOL)

    Contempt right there? not sure. Really admire those who can use FACS to measure facial movements. : )

    This truly looks to me like a blend of contempt and disgust. The upper lip raise is a sign of disgust, however it being asymmetrical hints strongly towards contempt.
