You succeeded in creating a strong emotional response from me. Unfortunately it doesn't match my generally positive emotional response of most of the Beatles music.

The dirty grungy feel to the photo really helps to add to the maniacal look on this man's face as he wields that hammer in a menacing way. The whites of the eyes and teeth really pop as well as the top of the hammer - all three are what the eyes zero in on first and foremost. A good capture of Maxwell. The only critique that I can offer on this piece is that perhaps the model should be holding the hammer higher above his head so the menace of the stance better captures the imminent danger of "ang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer Came down upon her head. It would then look like he is about to bring that hammer down on someone's head.
