Finally had some time to sit - saw the thread earlier coming back to comment now. Congrats on a top twenty finish and new PB! Pretty soon you will be hitting the six's:-) I wanted to comment that your processing from the original in the forum thread was well done. The shadows and highlights and processing really play up the threatening feel from that glaring look. I do have two suggestions that might help make the composition even stronger. Before applying the processing you could try making your lips a blood red color and then see what it looks like when you apply all your processing. I think it could look more menacing if she appears that she has blood on the lips making it seem that she is staring at us because we are her next prey. The other suggestion is a small one that has to do with crop. I think that there is just a wee bit too much empty space on the left side. I think cropping off 1/6 off on the left would leave enough 'shadows' for the main subject to emerge from while keeping the focus strongly on the main subject.

i think about an inch to the right for the camera would benefit this image. Nonetheless, i really like the overall effect.

great concept, a composition with more space at the bottom would have garnered a higher mark... love it anyway.
