Ur a Freak :)

I agree that you were robbed. People must have "penalized" you for not showing something cute and fluffy, instead of judging this superb photograph. Ggggrrrrrrrr at them.

I don't know how you missed top 10, but only by one..This shot was superb: the lighting, the subject and the use of the skull make it look like something out of Shakespeare..congratulations! Thanks for the outtakes..I like the one coming in one eye and out the other..looks like a poster for a movie.

Wow. This should have been number 1. This was the only 10 I gave out in the challenge.

You was robbed I tell you, ROBBED! A great shot, should have placed higher, certainly higher than the bathroom dog! Who do I complain to? :)

Very nice, congrats on your finish.

A good image that should have placed much higher. Congratulations on your 11th finish.

This should have placed. This was one of two 10's that I gave....I figured since it didn't have the 'cuddly' effect to it that it might score low....again I'm not a big snake fan...but this is an awesome picture in my opinion! :)

More than just a portrait of a snake. The lighting is perfect and the skull really adds to the image.

Very dramatic lighting. LOving the composition as well. Honestly, i can't find much i don't like about this picture, aside perharps from skulls upper extremity, which appears slightly blurred or simply a tiny bit out of focus. I believe a frame of sort would do some good as well. 9

Astounding... I am keeping a safe distance for fear it will strike. Wonderful background, fantastic use of a prop, and a truly wonderful photo. I have nothing but laudable comments for your submission, as it is truly a work of art.

Good luck with the challenge.... you should do very well

OK, I hate snakes more than anything you can imagine, but yet even I like this shot, very nicely done, love the lighting, only thing I wish the snake was looking a tad more this way. Nice work. 8

Interesting. I hate snakes AND skulls, but the photos so good, I have to give you a 10. People would probably buy a poster of that! :)

Beautiful snake. Love the colors and the textures, and you've framed this very nicely. The skull is a really great prop. That black background just makes all the colors really pop too. I used to own a 13 foot Burmese so I have a soft spot for snakes.
