I really like this photo and find it a very interesting image. The black face is perfect and I think adds to the impact of the image nicely. I especially like the hint of the eye. I wasn't a member when this challenge was run, but I would have given you at least an 8 on the first round of voting and quite possibly bumped you up on subsequent views. Nice work!

I actually had a scratch on my arm, no spot editting, so there wasn't much i could do about it.
I would have prefered better lighting also, but fo some reason the sun doesn't set when i want it to ;)

hmmmmm... why is the girl's face balcked out? it looks very odd....

Cool. Good idea to paint the face black, looks like the mask was the real face. I don't like the lighting though, it's not very interesting. A bit too dark overall, although the mask's blown out already. 6.

I'd like her face totally black and her eye closed to give the impression of no face, and the mask's eye also black. there are some paint on her arm and the mask's chin. I'd like her left arm lighter although I really love the shadows on her hand an on the mask. Great photo. Well framed.

Creative. I can see you could have made this pic a lot more appealing if it were an advanced editing challenge. What Ithink is that a little more light on the face and eyes seen more than what they are at this time would make it amazing. coloring the face black is really great and contrasts with the 'face' that is put up by the person so may be show the world

wow, another beautifully emotive photo. i can empathize with the girl's need to put on her face for the outside world, (such a superficial place). i've found that greyscale really makes a photo's emotional content that much more noticeable, and this is no exception. i love that stark mask on a muted background.

So excellent...what I love most about this is there's a mask beneath the mask. Only problem with that is all we see is her hairline...so it's a touch funny looking. This is too serious for the movie, but it's just such a great shot. 10

Effective use of black and white to create a striking image

Very well done, and the blacking out of the face is a nice touch.
