Cute idea; your model looks tormented...you aren't harrassing the help since you don't have a monkey, are you???? LOL I wish I could see more of the faces and less negative space on the bottom, but that's just me. Good idea! ;o)

I think it's an excellent photo, so I give you a 10, would you please tell me how you did it?

'negative space' (Gotta use the jargon...) at the bottom of this image dosn't seem to work, a tighter crop woudl have been better. Neat idea though, and well executed.

Very frightening!

I don't really like all that black space at the bottom... and you (or your model) look like you're possessed, but I do compliment you on the idea and the carrying it out. I look forward to seeing how you did it!

nice shot

****"I didn't photoshop the words in.
I used a black backdrop with the words taped on with regular masking tape.
I then set my camera to do 3 strobe flashes in a pitch black room..
the parts of the words that are captured are from those 3 strobes.
I have sent the original photo to the admins so they can validate..
Sorry if it seemed fake, but its really one picture..

I am real sorry about referring your image fo DQ, and so here is the truth!

This is a really interesting image. Can't wait for the tutorial to see how you did it within the rules. I like the large dark space at the bottom but might have cropped it a little differently to move the subject down into it a bit more. Just my opinion.

great delivery !

good idea--needed more cropping and contrast.

It's very busy up top, I would consider putting the evil on your shirt, it might balance it out. Still (10)
