great lighting and color contrasts. I don't care too much for the green stripe in the border, but that is neither here nor there, I suppose.

Nice colors. And silhouetting saved you from needing facial makeup. :-) Actually the silhouetting makes it more foreboding since the "we" are more mysterious.

Nice composition & colors (almost feels oversaturated, but I'm no expert) and I like your decision to leave it up to the imagination.
