Imaginative, fits the them for me, and good exposure with good shadow detail and separateion between foreground and background.

interesting set up. We are unsure of the meaning. Some of our group are bothered by the faceless man but I see your point and I like it.

The composition is good and balanced by the cross. My only minor criticism is that the cross is a little too burnt out for my taste.

This is a lot closer to surrealism than most of the photos in this competition got. I like that a graveyard is the backdrop. And I notice that you've placed a brightly lit cross on one of the four 'power spots' of the photo to echo or balance the placement of the subject' s 'face.' I'm afraid that I find the extraeneous elements of the phot really distracting: the chain lin fence, the metal rail fece, and the two giant black stone obelisks sprouting from the phantasm's shoulder. Finally, this is such a cheery and brightly lit day that the whole 'phantasm' idea seems, IMO, ridiculous.
