My boyfriend again. I cajole him into being my model. My original idea involved full makeup, but then I saw him while he was washing the paint off, and I felt that he was even scarier that way.

It's photographers like you that make photographers like me scared of clowns. Great perspective and lighting. I also like the "flatter" look in the background. Makes for a nice contrast.

Wow that is kind of disturbing! That is why i don't really like clowns! I really like your picture though. I like how the make up on your "clown" is chipping of and how his eyes are scary. Very good job!

The detail in this shot is amazing. It really adds to it. Nicely done.

OMG, I've never been scared of clowns, but THIS ONE!!! Dear god! Nicely done!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a really good idea. Unfortunately either there is too much light on the hand or not enough light on the face depending on what your were trying to achieve. Either way the hand has too much focus because of the wrong light distribution.

Nice angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2008 12:07:16 AM
omg...not sure how much more I can take! Scary and well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There are an awful lot of evil clowns out there! Must be hard work to end up with the makeup in such disarray. Model's expression is appropriately unpleasant.

wow...most of the clowns in this challenge are scary and freaky! this one is too...great image, love the square crop
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oooo -- I like it a lot! Great, unique interpretation of the theme, colours are suitably muted and creepy, nice tight shot is truly frightening!

Very scary. but the shot is very well done.

01/10/2008 01:00:53 AM
I cant sleep. Why do you have to mess up something so innocent as a clown?? ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 12:10:17 AM
Seriously unappealing. I can see what you're trying to achieve, but the clean blurry white hand really ruings the 'sinister' image you'r trying to create. The hand needed to be as filthy as the face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 11:33:40 PM
What you trying to do scare the kids, Sorry this doesnt say clown to me! would look better without the out of focus hand 5

Another evil clown! You gotta love it. The harsh light has made this shot more difficult for you (dark shadows upper right, harsh light lower left).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 06:37:25 PM
Very scary but brilliantly composed - 10

Creepy.

Creepy! The shot is really cool. I am sure you have heard it before but the hand took away from the overall effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 02:43:12 PM
This is a great shot but you should have had a glove on the hand. It just doesn't look right. The makeup is fantastic. 7

Jesus, hope I don't dream of this image tonight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 01:21:10 PM
Brilliantly haunting photo. You've really captured the 'maniac clown' and the grin is genuinely freaky. I love the textures from the cracked facepaint and blood on the teeth, plus I like the desaturated look of it to keep it dark and moody. Nice job.
