Interesting. Lighting is ok, but first two (from left to right) face looks like overexposed. Middle face looks like want to bite the ear of your face on right. If you had your face, without the three head thing, with the same lighting, I would say it would get better voting. My humble opinion of course :)

I like B&W's but this one seems a little busy for me, jmho. BB

This is a fun idea, but it lost something in the execution. Toward the center, where all three images collide, it starts looking almost grotesque, as if you're eating your own ear.

Nice idea and setup. I think if the 3 were apart you would see a bit more of your features. However very nice creativity and composition.
