Great lighting to exude that dream feeling. Bumping up.

I like the composition, but the light on the man's face seems a bit too harsh.

Is this a nightmare?
Never passing that literature exam and still studying when you are already old and grey?
Nice how the light falls. I wonder if that is a real person or a kind of wax dummy, looks like a styled museum room.

Oh my goodness I've seen that look on my face during finals week! Great job capturing the insanity of the studious! Good lighting, great shadows. Well done.

Good idea. The composition and lighting set the mood perfectly. However I think too much noise reduction was applied. The person and his clothing have a very plastic look. 6

Yeek! Are you sure that's not a nightmare instead of a dream??? I still have nightmares that I'm back in university! The professor looks sufficiently deranged in this photo. I like it!

very dream like. A bit over saturated on the face, or too high contrast. Nice moody lighting

I still have nightmares from seeing "Psyco" when I was a kid, I'll probably dream about this guy tonight. Great composition and treatment. I could do without the border entirely, I think the image stands on its own. What'd ya do to the models nose?

The llighting, the costuming, the props, everything is great! Hmmm, is this studious soul interpreting the dream he's in?

I take it he is supposed to a prof. If not he reminds me of the prof. Nice Shot The textured background is a little distracting but other than very sound shot.
