Creative take on the assignment. To bad the picture wasn't a little clear. I love sharp focus.

Nice interpretation :) I believe the exposure is slightly 'warm' on this photo. I would also like it better if the background was a little more out of focus with a smaller depth of field. The crop across the top cutting the top of the hat out of the frame could go either way... I'm not sure which works best, but overall, this may have worked better in a vertical orientation? Good shot! - jmsetzler

Good interpretation. I think a better composition would have been just on the chin & cheek, maybe with another shadow on part of the image. Here, "Maui" is quite dominant.

Please re-read the Challenge. Cute twist/play on words, but I'm not buying.....The shadow on the eyes kinda works, but the underside of his eyes make him look like a ghool. Photo 6 Creativity 5 Shadows 4 total 5

Nice double-inclusion of the theme, and good composition as well. B/W was a good choice.

kinda sorta an interesting idea but overall composition is just boring. It doesn't do anything for me. Try something different, more dramatic angle, i hate to say differnet lighting because your lighting was specific but it just doesn't do anything for me.

Okay, good tie-in with the challenge. Now, the problem is with the photo. Harsh lighting and busy background. Since the shadow is the stuff on his face, you might want to get rid of the shadow covering the eyes, or, maybe do a very close up framed as a portrait of just the chin and up almost to the eyes.

5 o'clock shadow is very clever, but without the title, this picture would lose all of its effectiveness. I think a much closer shot to emphasize this would have been much more effective. If you kept the current framing, at least center it horizontally.

good FOV

Bonus point for alternate interpretation I didn't think of...
