A cave for one of the holes at the local indoor minature golf course creates the strange land.
Black material and a headband created the stranger. There was no crop and just a slight color adjustment.

I think that this photo might need more of an explanation as I'm pretty sure that a lot of people look at this and think "what the...??". I don't really understand what you were trying to create.
I think that the person shouldn't be so close to the edge of the frame. It feels like he(?) is sort of squished in. Also, having just that little bit of rock along the right side is bothersome - needs to have either more or less. The colors are really bright. Did you increase saturation any? It adds to the "weird" mood of the shot. Really a tough lighting situation that you seem to have handled fairly well.

This reminds me of a "display" at Dollywood in Tn (used to be Silver Dollar city). The focus seems kinda fuzzy in spots (were you using a tripod?) and the lights are almost a bit blown out. A very interesting image, none the less

Fun photo, a tad silly, but fun. What is the subject doing? I might have liked him better further forward into the photo. Still, cool shot. 8 Swash

Interesting photo. I might have burned the lower left corner a bit.....

Colors, shapes and light are very unique in this photo. Not sure what the figure is doing, but all in all an overall appealing composition.
