I set my camera on a 5 second shutter timer. This was with another flash that was acting as a result of the first one. Hope you like it. :)

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A reasonable attempt that meets the challenge well.

You've achieved the desired effect on your subject but he just feels rather static and uninteresting. The lighting is uneven with the right of your 'ghost' much lighter than the left with a clear dividing line just right of centre top to bottom.

I'm not sure if you intended to have a ghost of the door too but the double exposure on the door for me spoils the effect in a way that is detrimental to the end result as a whole. Also spoiling the image is the lean to the right, it would benefit from straightening. A crop excluding all of the right up to the darker doorway would also help. I don't want to appear too negative, your commenters and voters have obviously appreciated it more than I but my suggestions are the things that I would have done to improve it.

Thanks for your submission, Sid

Great ghost. I found the image maybe a bit boring except for the ghost, maybe if I could have seen the ghost's expression a bit clearer or there was some movement like he was going in or out of the door rather than facing straight at the camera?? But overall still one of my top picks.

excellent concept - wish you had cloned out the orange handle in closet. gl. 8.

Not bad, but I think it would have been better if the shot would have been stabilized better and the door wasn't double exposed. Other than that, good job on the ghosting effect.
