Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that fulfils the challenge brief

That looks like some spectacular festival, Iíve just been looking at your other recent entry from there too. Whilst I like the colourful detail of your subject I feel you have missed a great opportunity to really wow the viewer with a much more dynamic image. Had you got the person really animated with a much more aggressive facial and body pose you could have really scared the viewer and probably got a more responsive result. I agree with Georges the cropping is a shame and also unnecessary I would have thought, but I do prefer the off-centre pose. Thanks Erin for showing us an interesting character in his colourful costume.
