Very nicely done, and one of the favorite songs at our house, I might add.

Compositionally, I like how you have used the white frame to emphasize the individual body parts. This adds an element of interest to the shot. Also, I like how that it is not obvious that it is three separate pictures, but rather he looks stacked "on top of himself"

Technically, it is also well done. There are details visible, no obvious 'blowouts,' and the lighting is nice and even. While it may not be incredibly dramatic, it is clean and helps to convey your message clearly. It does seem a bit flat to me though, even though you seem to have clear blacks and whites and tones in between. I'm not sure that bw works best for this shot (having not seen the color version, I definitely don't know) but I could see how this shot could be interesting with a bright background and complimentary colored shorts or something.

Nicely done, and a good showing.

If I need to further clarify or explain myself, please feel free to contact me.

AWESOME! Absolutely love it! Maybe lighten up the frames to pure white so they stand out a little more but I'd give it a 10 if they would let me vote! haha
