Nice portrait, perhaps a little too dark (but it may just read that way because of all the dark lines). The jigsaw filter is always cool, however, I don't see any concept of "falling apart" Yes, there is a drop shadow and a little motion blur on the lower pieces (that is distracting). You could have, for example, had the complete puzzle "falling apart" into various chunks at different angles and still used the filter. So I would give this a 7, but since it did not meet the challenge a -3 brings this to a 4.
