Neat picture, good idea.

A couple things that possibly work against the image (as far as scores at DPC goes) are: (1) not everyone will make the connection to the Wicked Witch, and you are at least in part relying on the title for people to make the connection - it's gotta hit them in the face, the title needs to complement the photo, not explain it. (2) It's a black outfit melting into grey, and it just doesn't have enough appeal to captivate the audience. (3) The subject (robe/hat) looks a bit like a black blob, no detail.

Please don't get offended, it's hard to make constructive comments.

Maybe try different background and more dynamic lighting for a similar image. Maybe try not cutting off parts of the subject. Maybe in colour. I don't know, I think the idea has a lot of potential, but it would be good to experiment with different executions.

great idea but would be better in colour with nice green slime running out over the floor

Interesting idea, but I don't think the image can stand outside the context of this challenge or without the title (not taking any points for that though).

Great picture of the witches last words, but it's missed the irony that I believe was intended in last words for the challenge.

Like the composition. Needs more detail in shadows.
