Well done. The grain works very well for this image. One of my top 3

like the (what appears to be ) high iso setting for a good overall "noise" to the pic. nice work.

A good idea for the challenge, well executed and I like the black and white with only the color red. At first glance I wasn't a big fan of the grain - but it does add to the overall feeling of the image. Well done!

Hmmm.. if this is a self-portrait, I'd better grade high!
Seriously, I like the grainy effect. Reminds me of Hitchcock.
Nice idea and good execution.

A bit grainy but I like the drama of the shot. 6

Is that a child in the shot? The hand looks so small! The idea is well done but the shot really leaves me wanting, the grain really takes away from teh overall shot, maybe if the knife was smoother and more focused this would work much better. A 5

This would be the cutting edge! The black and white grainy look make this a truly scar picture. The red on the tip of the blade and the girl's eyes make this a very scary picture.

This is creepy! I like it. The eyes are great. I don't care much for the blood. It's kind of bright and glittery. Also, if someone was actually stabbed with it there would be much more blood. I think it would be a cool shot without the blood, actually. Nice job.

Interesting idea. I like the color vs. black and white. It looks a little grainy. Good lighting and shadow effect. Nice composition. 5.

Don't care for the long double title. Althoug it appears the noise in this shot was intentional I think it would be better without it. 6

The grainy effect works perfectly with the B&W shot. The good lighting gives the shot good contrast. Especially in the blade. It helps to show the sharpness of it. Love the red blood color on the end of the knife. Brings your eyes right toward it.

Love the menacing eyes and the whole expression on the face. Very nice shot.

The lighting is great, especially the shadows. The blood is a good touch. :)

Nice grain efect, and concet. May be a little dark but there is not other way to do. 8
