Love the shadows cast by the low lighting. I think it increases a sense of anxiety and as graphicfunk mentions, panic. Your expression is priceless! :D Tried pulling a face like the one in your bio? That would be a hoot!

I think removing the dead space would have more impact. The lighting is great.

An image we can all identify with. The low key helps it attain that state of sweet panic. Bump.
