This is a very interesting photograph. I like the B&W conversion, it works very well. Also, this is completely out of the box and works well. From the perspective, it seems almost like Chaplin is holding the camera.

My only complaint is that the bulb is very, very white and draws most of the attention.

Once again, love the shot.

Keep shooting.

this is pretty cool stuff; i love how you've set this up, and how the painted screaming bloke looks like it's you. this is so creatively clever! the bulb is a little off putting and doesn't really fit into the style of the shot (for me, anyway) but that aside i think this really rocks. will also add that the greyscale is brilliantly well done; how (bulb excluded) everything is white free is really effective and compliments the painting/poster in the background. good level of noise too! 9.

Love the artistic feel of this. Bumping up!

I love the dark edgy treatment! The composition is wonderful. B&W works well. Artistic. Emotional. This is certainly the most out-of-the-box entry in the challenge! I therefore fear it will be trashed in the voting. But I gave it a 10 and it's obviously among my top picks in this challenge.
