This was deliberately taken to back light the subject to put emphasis on the fire colors and the blowing hair, such as Drew Barrymore's hair was blowing in the movie.Might be over the realm on this one, but you never know.

Reminds me very much of a video still. What an excellent and scary submission! Even the dab of compression simply adds to its quality as a spooky video capture. The girl's expression is menacingly unconcerned.

I think this was a very good attempt to illustrate the book. But you set your JPEG compression ratio too high, and that has degraded the photo. Also, while the effect is nice, the close up, just off center composition isn't as interesting as I think other versions might be. (Actually, it works well as a thumbnail).

I like the feel of this shot. Surely fitting for a Stephen King novel. 8 -danny

Nice. The colors are perfect as is the idea and execution. If there was just a little more detail of the little one, it would be awesome. Still a very inspired photo!
