Taken at a local hiking trail, had a few interesting looks as the model with full clown makeup on walked to the location deep within the woods.

strange, twisted and brilliant tones. Well done.

I can't stop lauging. Looks like dracula on vacation... The composition is very interesting, but the front branch across the image somehow doesn't work for me. Maybe just separating the face a bit from the branch. You have good clarity in this image. Everything is sharp. The face shines like a moon :-)) This is one bad dream allright :-))

The smirk on the face is too fun to make this scary. If the eyes were more evil looking or scary I think it would have worked much better. Also if the shot could have been taken so all you saw was the head or even just the eyes peering out. The contrast seems off a bit to me, a tad to bright.

That's a scary looking guy. Nice composition!

Jack Nicholson? ;-)

Haunting, humorous, beautiful, flawless. I hope it does well.

Nice, dark tones contrast well with the lighter face.

Yikes! Wouldn\'t want him lurking outside my house! If his face wasn\'t so bright I think this would have been better. Maybe hanging back in the shadows some.

I like the fact see head but the rest of his body blends in.

Cool! The bright spot to the left of the subject is maybe a bit distracting.

Fabulous shot, full of character. Great textures and composition. Effective range of tones, I like the low key background. Great model, very effective. Reminds me of German expressionist silent films. My only quibble is that the man's forehead looks a bit odd... there's a bit too much tonal contrast there. Shame you can't dodge and burn. Excellent work. 9

I like the way you captured the mood and 'eerie' feeling in this photo...the coloring and lighting are wonderful for this shot...good job

Nice job. Despite losing the effect of the make-up, having more of the face obscrured by the branch (with eyes and top of head pearing above) may have given a more stalking impression.
