The tight grip in his eyes,
The fear in the fork,
The silent scream of the hand,
All confused. All chaotic.
But one united purpose
- defending yourself in anyway.

I felt for sure this would ribbon. Even if being a set up, I couldn't escape the expression and his devastating vulnerability. Absolutely compelling.

I sure hope this is staged as the exploitive genre makes me sick. 9.

I really can't stand drama, and I am really disturbed by what I see in this picture therefore it must be truly dramatic! So I give it a 10 even though I think it is a little over processed (too smooth skin, lacking texture). I can only imagine what is coming at this person to make him resort to a cornered fork defence.

Congrats to your model, not only is the expression on his face great but the body language in general is one of fear... I do have to admit that, to me, the title seems more to represent paranoia - but none the less, great choice in pp, love the b&w and think you have presented us with a shot that is not the norm but meets the challenge well ... excellent!

Compelling, frightening. B&W makes it cold, harsh and emotive, but in an artistic way.
