Will this be your new profile photo? This is a wonderful (albeit, disturbed) image. I think it is a perfect example of off center positioning of the subject. Congratulations on your ribbon.

This ia a 10, Lighting, shadows, right down to the yellow teeth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2005 05:53:25 PM
This is one of my personal favs and one of my phobias as well. Great work on the subjects expression and use of light to express evilness.... :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2005 12:14:22 PM
That is EVIL--I like it! I little blown out from the flash, but a good shot overall. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2005 04:23:59 AM
What a sad phobia, but this one is a bit spooky.......
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/26/2005 11:15:50 PM
I am very scared otf those teeth!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/26/2005 02:07:17 PM
Thats just creepy. I may have considered having the lighting uniform in that one side of his face and coat would have the light shining on it instead of how it is now. But still, very convincing. 9

12/25/2005 01:52:21 AM
Ok so I'm a little biast as clowns have always scared the bajeebas out of me! But the colouring alone in this pic just adds to that curdled blood feeling that chills my spine. This is one scarey clown!! Excellent depitction!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/24/2005 11:58:24 PM

12/23/2005 03:34:51 PM
I was thinking one of these might show up... nicely done. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/23/2005 03:28:24 PM
Nice job. I would have lighted it from the bottom instead of from the side. The green light coming from the right shoulder is disturbing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/23/2005 02:26:38 PM
This photo is one the scariest most technically well done entries of this challenge. Well done! nitpicks, just a few... the bright spot in the bottom left hand corner distracts a bit and perhaps a little crop off the top so the stare really hits one in the face ;)3

Very well done, he looks evil. Just like Stephen King's IT!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2005 11:30:34 AM
A very sinister clown! Good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2005 04:45:51 AM
Beautiful représentationdu clown, it has the unpleasant air like all. For the photograph I think that one sees the places too enlightened and a bad management of the light (7)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2005 12:15:35 AM
OK - This guy scares me too! ;^) Self-portrait? He-he. Anyway, nice lighting and composition with this. I like the way you've come tight in on the face (losing the chin and hair) to emphasize the nose and eyes. Good luck in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 09:12:07 PM
Wow amazing capture, great composition and very evil clown
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 09:07:48 PM
If you were afraid of clowns before you are now, I woulda just kept the phobia naem in the title, the picture says a thousand words
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 03:31:58 PM

Great! Now I won't be able to sleep for a week. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 02:38:43 PM
Instead of just making me feel someone else's fear, you are actually INSTILLING it in me. I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with coulrophobia myself after looking at this pic. Well done!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 02:04:34 PM
Well, I gave only 1 ten in the challenge...and this is it. congrats on a very disturbing picture. It's blue to me...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 12:13:25 PM
Ok this is probably one of the freakiest clown pics i've seen! it's what nightmares are made out of. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 11:38:48 AM
I would be afraid of this one 2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 10:31:13 AM
Man I can relate to this. I hate clowns. Creepy guy behind the makeup (shudder). But this is a great image. Thanks for the nightmare. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 10:04:36 AM
yup. i'm afraid! the only thing i don't like is the harsh light, which is strange because it kind of fits. it's not supposed to be smooth and appealing, but the details in the glare just add clutter that distracts form the expression that you've hit dead on! and the composition is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 02:33:28 AM
Yikes! Iit's John Wayne Gacy!

Great job!!

12/21/2005 01:34:57 AM
Terrifying! I feel like the teeth should be whiter. Other than that, very scary.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 12:44:11 AM
Yikes! This is a shot that definitely creeps me out. Good job!
