Visually this image just isn't working. It appears disorganized, chaotic. There are some areas of nice, luminous color, But everything right of center and above the horizontal frond is just visual "lost space" with nothing good happening. It's not like you have negative space in a dance with positive space, it's like the image just peters out on its own.

Referring to the stunning original on which this is "based", all they have in common is that you have punned on his title, and I'm sure that worked against you.

I wish I had something more positive to say, but this just isn't working at any level for me.

nothing happening for me here; visual confusion is all

The composition doesn't work for me. Maybe the lighting needs a bit of adjustment.

I think you'll get bashed on this one, just for taking a radically different approach from most. A shame, but this shot actually doesn't have anything like the impact of JJ's shot, simply in terms of tonality and composition, if nothing else.
