I was going to use another shot, but I accidentally saved over the original. Didn't want to get disqualified if it came to giving the original, so last minute shot, taken on the 21st, Dec, Bangkok Time.

Greetings from the CC. I think your photo shows true fear. The expression of the subject adds to that. Rules of 1/3rds applied pretty well. Now on to the critique part.

The color and lighting seem very flat and maybe even a bit noisy, not sure if that was intentional to try and set the mood but I think it takes away and doesnt add to the photo. The composition is pretty good, however the wall and cabinet? in the background appear to be leaning and take your focus off the subject. I realize that moving the statues may not have been an option, however moving the subject to take away distractions in the background may have helped score better along with the lighting change. Good luck with future challenges.

Casual use of green tint to depict fear. Picture conveys but does not convince.
