This subject was a bit of a challenge for me, it kind of creeped me out.

I counted on long exposure in the complete dark to set the tone; sort of newspaper print with lots of grain. It was interesting holding breath in water until countdown, then drying off hands, previewing, reset, etc... After previewing this pic, I have to remind myself I'm ok.. I actually feel like I did something wrong! *shudder* It gives me the creeps to know that's me. :)

HI from the C Club

Powerful POV here. The grain is very dominant in this, I think just a tiny bit less would have given a little impact. Also your cropping could be more dramatic in this shot. Crop out the shower curtain and the soap dish, and BAM you are full force on with your 'body'

I do not think there is anything else in post processing that you can do, as this seems perfect for this shot

the noise fits the subject, I would have liked to see more contrast....6

I think the composition of this is just a little off. I am not sure what I would have done to fix it.
