I'd make this a 10 plus if I could. Really, really good one.

This is striking and would have been suitably titled "flame". I would like to see this re-edited as to soften the lighting on certain parts and bring out more texture. Good luck!

Very nicely composed. I like the artistry of this shot. The lighting seems a bit harsh to me. The shadow that the shaving is casting on itself is very nice, but it's a little burnt out in spots. One of the nicer shots of this challenge, though. Good job!

In this challenge, "Creativity is the Key" is what I am using to score images. Excellent use of technique. Very creative, lighting well done. There is some static-ness about the image but I cannot put my finger on why. I think it may the be the composition/crop. But I love the tones used. 7- good luck in the challenge! Thinking about it some more, I think it is the lack of balance in the image - both the subject and lighting are bottom weighted, pulling the image down. Maybe if the shaving had ended at the first complete circle or maybe if the top was cropped a little more I wouldn't feel that. Excellent out of the box image for this challenge.

Interesting. I like the curled aspect. The light is a tad too yellow. This might be cool in black and white.
