Amazing finish and I'm really thrilled to be amongst such an excellent group. Thanks for all the great comments... :)
Very simple lighting setup with a single flash from immediate left. Like to desat to enhance mood and with this one it worked really well. Added a bit of sepia for a more gritty look. Brought out the highlites... perhaps a bit much for some but thought it too gave a bit more intensity to the image and darkened the shadows to gradually blend the model into the background.

I haven't read the comics, but did see the movie and your photo captures the style of it pretty well. Some selective coloring might tie in even closer, but its not really necessary. I like the focus and composition as well.

This shot blew me away when I first saw it. (no pun intended) You couldn't of picked a better POV in my opinion. The dramtic lighting, his expression and the post processing really give it that extra bada bing bada boom. Well done!

Nice use of the lighting to capture a nice picture.
I personally feel that the contrast could be higher to acuratly give the sense of the film.

I like the 'coldness'? of this black and white study. Rather than having the gun pointing at the viewer (me) I seem to be drawn to wondering who/what its being aimed at. Please tell us it was lit with a couple of table lamps, the lighting is excellent. (bumping 1)

I like that the lighting is coming from the right side, but it is just a bit harsh on the forehead and thumb. Still, well thought out and executed shot.
