Don't care for your subject, but your shot is great. Love the light/ shadow emphasizing some of the detail, and the eyes do look absolutely scary. lhall

I don't particularly go for the red in these pictures. Just personal. I do notice there are a lot of them. And I'll be honest this does tend to make me vote lower than I probably would otherwise. Don't know why you cropped so closely and made it all so dark. Would have liked a little more of it and more light. But it does show good texture to the body. I like that. Overall, even with lowering because of the red I still give it a 6.

Cool statue. I think he could've used a little more light. This is pretty darn close though. I might have also not taken the pic quite so close. - Inspzil

Kinda cool, but lack of background is a little annoying with the context of a gargoyle...

Very nice photo. Gargoyles are the protectors, right? My only complaints: It's a little out of focus and I don't care for the red lighting, but it appears that you used that intentionally. 8/10!
