What a compelling work of art! Truly, this embodies what art is about- not just a pretty picture, but something that reaches beyond the visual and touches your very soul.

Dramatic? I think not.

This piece is as creepy as you hoped ;) It keeps the viewer in wonderment- what exactly are we looking at? Is the person trapped and trying to get out? Or reaching to another who is trapped?

The grey scale effect just increases the intensity of the picture, in my opinion. The shadows are enhanced, which makes the effect even more eerie. Light and dark are melded together because of this, creating a visually pleasing composition. :)

Speaking of shadowing, I love the darkness under his face and around his hands. It makes it seem like he's about to fall into this deep abyss- whether physically or just mentally.

I really love your focus in this! Overall, the piece is a bit fuzzy, which is absolutely perfect for the design and vision. I love how you can make the individual lines out on the hand- it reminds me of how some can read the lines on a persons hands to tell their fate. I also love how the subjects face is almost completely obscured. This makes the piece a thousand times more creepy- this person could be anybody. It also seems to play with the fear of being completely forgotten by those you used to know and being left behind. (Just an idea)

I honestly can't really think of anything to improve this shot! The picture is so compelling, and there is so much to look at, and nothing I can truly see to improve. Well done!
What do you think?

Ah... I didn't know the actual term for it, but yes. I get it randomly. Most of the time, I'm a fearless guy, but if I watch a very scary movie, those floodgates open.

Something always a bit eerie about the hands in focus, but the body they're attached to being totally obscured.
