I'm surprised that this didn't get a ribbon. But 4th is good too. But regardless of placement, this is an outstanding shot and actually one of my favorites in any category.

Finally.. a shot that actually captures fear. Excellent.. a little grainy for my taste, but I think that's more the wall than anything. Very well done! :)

Great capture of (melodramatic) emotion!

Good idea, execution, and composition. Looks a bit overprocessed, but it still works and I like it.

Very nice! Love the image and the response on his face and with his body, it really projects the phobia perfectly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cool! I tried this idea but just was too late to re-shoot as the first on went terribly wrong. Nice capture bra.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2005 07:10:47 PM
it would have been nice to see the whole shadow, but otherwise good job...

Creative photography! Evokes the feeling of fear and not lacking a sense of humour at the same time. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very good indeed!

The effect made works well for this shot, instead of degrading the shot, I believe it enhanced its integrity. The phobia is shown very well. Body language is great. Although, I think I see the dark bit of the eye,iris, it would have probably been better if the eyes were looking at the shadows rather than away. I could be wrong though. Very good use on the shadow, well choreographed in my opinion. I know it's hard, but I took a point off for the excessive whiteness on the shadow's bum. Another for not entirely portraying the fear through the eyes. I gave an 8.

Well executed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It would have made more sense to pick some innocent shadow - like that of a tree - because a phobia is an irrational fear, not sensible concern over a real threat.
However, you DID depict fear, give a proper title, and generally made an effort. 7

This is one of the best representations of fear, one of the best shots so far, 10

Beautiful representation, misses only the name of the phobia

Nice execution.

Great idea ...

Okay. That conveys fear. Crop the left side. the bright column distracts from the shadow.
