Hi guys, thank you for voting and commenting :)

I lost a chance to get a ribbon. This image had so many flaws, but the idea was good.

This was very hard to do in advanced. The biggest problem was the real person under the jacket (and the shirt). This was quite impossible to hide her (my niece) especially because I ran out of time shooting for this challenge.

No doubt I could do it better than this. This is the score I expected to get. It was quite higher a couple of days before rollover but I really thought I didn't deserve it.

Thank you very much for thinking it was Gyaban's, it'a always a pleasure to be compared to such a skillful guy, and it's not the first time that it happens :)

Shows that you can't photograph an imagination. Well done. Again.

This is polished and well executed - the red, black and white palette is dramatic and sophisticated and the costume and pose are of a piece.

Loved this picture, the only thing I'd have done differently is position the glasses a bit higher, because they look like they'd be about upper-lip level on a real person, so it breaks the illusion somewhat that they aren't where the viewer would expect them to be.

A good attempt in bringing the Invisible Man out and onto the cover:-) Lighting is good and the details and composition is strong. There are a few things that could have been done to make this composition even more stronger. First there is the sunglasses resting on what would be the neck. It would strengthen the illusion if the glasses were floating in mid-air like that of the hat. To have it rest on a solid object ruins the illusion of an 'invisible man'. Very fine fishing wire tied to the back of both temples and one on the bridge of the glasses attached to the hat would give it the stability it needed to float under the hat (and if the line showed up due to the angle of lighting one is allowed to edit it out in Advanced Editing) The other small thing is be careful of the lighting - there are faint shadows on the inside of the underside of the hat that ruins the illusion.

This is so nearly perfect. The light is great, the outfit, the colors, even the floating hat. But what's inside the shirt and how the glasses are placed kills the illusion. Also, next time, spend some time with an iron....
