Hey there. Just came back to this while poking around your portfolio. I'm a victim of my darkish home monitor. When I voted on this at home, about all I saw were your eyes and some smudges. Looking at it now on a brighter screen, it's really powerful. Well done!

Interesting, I keep staring at it trying to figure out what it is, but then it starts to scare me since I'm home alone and I stop!

Nice use of shadows. You photo may just be slightly too dark. But I like how you bring out the eyes.

I can only imagine the comments from those without calibrated monitors, as this is really on the border of very little visible.
A bit too obscure and sinister in appearance for my taste.

This is really cool... but I daresay that most people's monitors won't allow them to see what's going on here. I can only just make it out on a laptop (which I find is generally brighter than most computer screens). 8.

Creepy - I like it, but I'm not crazy about the filter on this one - seems to overpower the image. I have a feeling I would have loved it without the filtered look.

Nice concept but much too dark

a bit too dark!

This was so intriguing, yet so very dark that I had to download it to brighten it. Once I saw the actual image lighter, I saw the beauty of it. Any photo that causes me to download it and edit it to see what it is deserves a higher score than what I would ordinarily give it when viewed as is on my monitor. 8

Appreciate the originality but it's way too dark. Had to look really hard to try and decipher what it is.

This looks like it have very good potential but is simply too dark to see what you're after (I've checked on two monitors.)
