This is by far the most editing I have ever done on a photo. The makeup I use was all cracked and... well, looked like crap. I ran it through Neat Image, did some cloning, did some burning... and here we are. A soft image of a clown that looks pretty sad... Sad Lonely Clown

Not sure how this will do, so...

My guess: 5.7

I love the lighting you used on this to highlight only the face and let everything else fall to black. The one thing I notice on a technical point is the eyes - I wish they were sharper. Looks like the focal point ended up on the tip of the nose and a little softness fell into the area of the eyes.

Nice score and another great finish. Well done! :D

Great photo. 2 minor suggestions. I would have probably used a little fill reflector on the cheek/chin area so it doesn't just disappear into the black. Also, in your post processing, just a slight whitening if the eyes would really make them pop more. Overall I think this is a great picture. Well done.

I am not buying slc as an acronym...If I was a client, you would not get the job...
You would however get a sale, because this is gorgeous...

Not sure what SLC stands for, but technically this photo is sound. Especially love the lighting, the way his faces drifts off to black. Great expression too. 8

Sad lonely clown? I have no idea what your acronym is but I am voting on the photo, not the title.

sad little clown? I've never heard the acronym, but you did a good enough job with the photo that most people could deduce, I think. Wonderful lighting!

Great effects with the black backgound, white face, and red nose. But what is "SLC"? (sad lonely clown?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh this is wonderful. Terrific lighting. The eyes couldn't be better. I'm trying to figure out the acronym. Sad Little Clown??? Well, the photo is brilliant.
