I know you tried for a misty look, but the whole image lacks contrast which makes it harder to look at. The lady also looks like half laughing - her eyes give her away. She doesn't look scared. Are you using too much compression? - the image is pixelated and grainy.

the mist effect is fun:) and the model is doing a good job with her expression. I think this shot would have faired better if the charaters were facing one another, and the spook were on the attack as though our heroine were facing impending doom. 5

Interesting shot - when the bad guy gets snuck up on!

The lighting is too bright and the smoke is not very effective. It almost looks like a conversation is going on instead of fear.

Nice smoke effect but honestly, the white masks have lost all their fear factor in my house and the woman's face, while trying to look frightened doesn't quite pull it off. Maybe if there were more face to face, a side view and she was in full scream mode I would have score higher on this.

Nice work! Try putting the woman in front with the ghoul peeking from behind the door. I like your mist effect.

Super idea, and I love the steam too.

He he, I really thought I'd see a whole lot of these masks in this challenge but I was wrong. The mist gives this a kind of flat effect, but I am thinking that's the effect you were after right? Did you take this with shower going?

Interesting effect of mist - or a trick or treater on a foggy Halloween?

Watch your lighting in this one, the light spillage into your lens has effectively ruined the image for me. Sorry. (3)

A good setup but poorly executed

nicely done although a bit blown out in the top left hand corner. She has very nice eye-highlight. Looks almost like a painting with the grains.
