Taking a chance this photo won't frighten everyone.

Auto levels, desaturated, topaz adjust to entire image, auto contrast, bumped contrast a tad more, unsharp mask, adjusted image size, added border, unsharp mask again.

heh - yeah...guess it DID scare.
Just to confirm - this was real. I didn't alter or fake any of it other than the editing mentioned above. The desaturation was the main edit.

This is my own personal voting scale. It's merely an huble opinion, based on whatever limited photography knowledge I have. You have all right to agree/disagree with me.

Kind of disturbing.

No faking this one. I've seen this done live. I can't understand why they do it. You have made a very dramatic capture. High marks. I wish you luck with this.

cutting edge I assume, but a bit bothersome...I wonder how you did it.

WTF.There's gotta be a better way to spend your time than hanging from oversized fish hooks with your ass cheeks swaying in the breeze. That's gotta hurt.

Now that is just really gross to me. Sorry. She looks dead.

Ummmm? This is freaky.

An interesting and provocative image but quite limited too - the tight crop, the lack of colour, the ambiguity of certain elements all conspire to ensure we get no more than a highly framed peek into this scene. Was that your intention?

That looks comfortable...
