I feel the Earth should stand still for this one. Gave it an 8 at the time. That was stingy.

This was one of my favorites. Inspiring in a dark sort of way. I gave it a 9.

Visceral image, John. Delighted it's receiving the attention it deserves.

Wow! Wish I had looked at this challenge now. This is sizzlin' good stuff. A panty-sniffer about to stick up a liquor store: now that is magic. I'd have been a 10 for sure and stuck my ugly big thumb on your head. Had I only done so, you could have finished 29th! Just imagine that.

VERY good. And a tad creepy. But creepy in a compelling and look a little longer way.

Marauding Marsmen, more likely. Best of all.

This is probably basic editing for you, right? :) This is kind of spooky! Fits in with your eclectic collection. Someone should write a story to go with this scene.

Thought I would see this on the front page. Just so you know, this is NOT the 30th best image of the challenge. This is magnificent.

Iím sure Iíve had this image as a recurring nightmare when I was young, not so young and now.

Powerful and intriguing!

Inside the habitrails. Marvellous and familiar. Strikes a chord. My favourite of the challenge. 10

the textures and tones work this into a creepy case of who stole the cookie jar.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

My first thought, "could this be the Sign Painter in the World of Goo game?" Then upon study it gives off a surreal, otherworldly feel/look. I makes me think of an Joseph Merrick a.k.a. Elephant Man type of individual or a faceless & nameless being that crosses our path as we walk down the street. The encounter is surreal leaving us disoriented and wondering what to say - perhaps 'Goo' is the what is needed to be said in this situation. Goo perhaps means hello.

Look, if you're going to be that good then I'm going to have to punish you with a 10, oh, and next time have a shave.

Haunting. Having grown up in the 80's, first thing that this reminded me of was images of the Iran hostages. [Not trying to be political, just noting how strong this image is...(at least for me).]

Oh wow - that could be the beginning shot in a VERY sick and creepy movie. I can see this used as the poster (prior to adding the text) YIKES!!!! 9
