With only 20 minutes to both take and edit this image, I wouldn't say i'm pleased but i'm not disappointed either.

nice twist on a popular style, makes it such a perspective dilemma

It doesn't really work as well as the original.

I remember the original and without looking at it I think he did a better job with the masking.

without the optical illusion, but nicely done retake.

A fun concept, but poorly executed.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

You have great detail on the man's face, nice catch-light in the visible eye, and good, dynamic B&W tones on the portrait. It is a good emulation of the original but I feel there are a few things that could have been done to make the shot better. The original had the backdrop dark and the shoulder almost non-existent. This redux could have used those two elements to help make the subject pop more visually. The white shirt and the backdrop do not allow the face(s) to shine as the main focus - they call focus away from what you want your audience to stay focused on. The face cut out while good could have been even better had the features been more pronounced and detailed like the original. Not sure that either the original or the redux benefit from the flat grey of the cut out face as maybe white or black would have more contrast pop.
