Very evocative image. Nice b/w treatment.

Nice perspective and well lit. The darker patches around the eye are a little too severe IMO but it does not detract from a clever take. Well done.

The more I comment on monochrome pictures and that I am not a fan, the more it wins. This one is particularly effective and a colour picture would definitly not convey the same anxiety as seen in this picture. Well done

Incredibly effective - very Hitchcockian which could very easily been a cut scene from any of his movies. Very effective and very noir. The lighting angle with the rich dramatic black and abrupt facial shadows give a feeling of intensity not often seen in images like that. Simply outstanding from both a technical and artistic standpoint. One more comment - this image would have worked framed smaller with the dark cut off right at the ear. While the partially lighted ear gives the scene some depth and dimension and transitions the light angle from the face to the wall, it just seems a little out of place. A crop just to the right edge would have helped and a total clone out would provide a two step technique to the lighting which might improve it very slightly. That being said, this is perfect as it is and the ear comment was only something to experiment with. This would work really well as an entry into a print competition. Well done - congratulations. By rights a ribbon winner hands down.

Fantastic impact - well done! Great detail and contrast too.

I'm wondering whether this would benefit from slightly less contrast.
It does have appeal though, and it's original enough that I kind of like it.
