Fun setup, great centre composition which in this case works. Interesting use of sepia tone. The face in the centre is almost creepy :-))) Well done.

Wow! great image! I like the use of sepia here. the movment confined to the center of the shot also works for me. what might have been even more fun would have been for the model to have moved from the image for the last couple seconds of the shot and have had a fire going to give it even more action. Just the same, I had rated it a 7 but coming through and offering a comment I think more a 9. good luck:)

There is no black tone in the picture. but I like the sharpness of the bricks contrasted with the movement of the person. I can't decide if this last comment is good or bad, the models teeth turned out to be what I keep focusing on and they look so weird.

The only thing to improve this would be to have at least one sharp image among all the movement there to give me a sharper image of what it is. I still like the motion blur, though. That makes this a 7.

Scared me. Save for Halloween.

i like your idea. i would have liked it better if the left elbow was not in front of the brick, making it look more like the person is in the black hole. nice image.

It does look like a nightmare indeed. The sepia is a good choice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I guessing the nightmare is to be sucked into a black hole. Too much motion for my taste, maybe if it was just the hands that were moving and the face was more visible with a look of terror?

how bizzare. quite different. I like the tone of the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful! It definitely has the dream/nightmare quality. I love the contrast between the blurred movement and the sharpness of the brickwork. Gave it an 8

Weird and cool effect. The solid bricks provide a nice contrast with the blurry woman.

Disturbing. Good job!

awesome photo...I like the effect, and the color is exceptional...good job..a 10 in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very original. I wanna see the settings on this one. The brickwork is really clear but not over exposed. The moving person is disturbing... Nicely done Great balance between lighting and exposure! 8

You've done a very good job with this image. She fits pefectly into the hole on all sides, that must have been difficult to do. The sepia is a nice warm tone which really lends itself well to your pic.

Is it hot in there? The blur creates the dreamlike atmosphere, especially in contrast to the solid-looking brick.

Frightening image. Not sure about the title, but reminds me of a edger allen poe story, so pretty frightening indeed. excellent teeth especially makes for the fright factor.
