beautiful photo, the way the model blends into the composition, as though caught in the horns of a dilemma.

I like the concept. The man blends into the rest of the image; I think the idea would come across better if he stood out more. It might be possible to do that by brightening the image enough to get some detail on his legs.

I like the balance to this and at the same time its lack of symmetry. Of course black and white is a natural choice for this and I appreciate that the contrast isn't too blown out.

Needs more contrast. Your person almost fades into the dark side, or is that intentional? This might be more effective if taken from behind the subjects shoulder and just include the head and the 2 backgrounds. 7

Too dark - the clouds in the background are brighter than your bright "stone," so your opposite objects don't seem to contrast enough.

1. good contrast
2. good light
3. Like it in b&w
4. I like the way it fits the challenge

1. A little too overexposed
2. The person is not center
3. would want to see more sky, and the person lower

Still good work!

interesting image. i think it might be better with most of the sky cropped out.

interesting...could use some fill flash on his legs..the knind of blend into the scent too much, a black hole type effect. also, the back of his head does not seem to be in focus. not cropped evenly (left to right) and seems tilted (the stone tablet tops are not level). Could have been outstanding..
