Ah, look at that. You know I liked this and gave it a 7 during voting. First impressions, as best I recall, were: what is going on here.. where, what, how. Nice movement capture and the lighting really took this image to another level.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Reading your Photographer's Comments: "Slight rotate (by that I mean I flipped it over) " - funny - so he was upside down, ahh, it all makes a little more sense now.
Composition wise, I think the composition is strong and well placed, I like that you've flipped it and it does kind of go with your unique title. I really like the profile of his/her face and the lighting on it and the way that has caught the eye. The minor distractions in the rear, perhaps cloning out. Maybe, maybe a slight rotate to get the fore bar 'straight', but depends of course if you had the room to work with.
Comments, Score & Placement Review
199/419, tough one - I'm guessing you know this is a slightly 'out there' image, so would likely have never placed too high. It is disappointing, and I'm making a presumption, that most didn't stop to linger and appreciate what they were looking at. Which you certainly don't see often. A score of 5.69 - hm, a little low perhaps, but again, for a semi out of the box kind of image, that is probably pretty good.
Your commenters: all really liked it, hence your 7.42 score on average from them. No 'improvement' feedback - but it is tough with an image like this.
It's unique - I wonder about a print of this on a wall - but he/she would then need a name. That's just my warped mind. And what is he looking at... (don't answer, that's part of the interest in the image).
