Greetings from the Critique Club...

I was not able to vote on this challenge, but if I had, I probably would have given you a 6.

I really like clean and simple photographs, so my first impression is that this is great. I like the sharp contrast in black & white tones, and the texture of the wire is interesting to look at. This is a different type of personification that most entries in this challenge. Many people have used inanimate objects and posed them to give them a personality, while you have created (or found) a person made from an inanimate object. While it is a nice photo, there isn't a cleverness as seen in some of the other photos, and therefore it doesn't hold my interest for very long. Perhaps seeing the statue up close and personal in real life would be a little more interesting.

If you need any clarification on any of my comments, please feel free to pm me. It might take some time for me to get back to you.

cool high contrast image - i wish the object were less fashioned into a person and more resembling a person
