    it's very good. i like it a lot. the only critisism i have is that the shadow on (your) left side of your face is kinda weird or awkward.. (from the shovel) but its really just a nitpick. nice job.

    I'm sure that's a pitchfork.

    Nice work LeSueur24. It looks a bit cartoonish and the flash is harsh (left arm), but a great expression.

    I was sort of going for the cartoon-ish effect with the editing, and I didn't really pay attention to the shadow until I started editing it. Same with the flash, but I figured that I took like 6 of these that the expression/composition of this one came out too well to re-shoot. Thanks for the comments.

    Really nice! My only preference would be to have the tips of the pitchfork withn the frame... But that's really minor! I love the style, and the high contrast...

    The expression on your face fits and the pp is is good. Well done.

    Reshoot wearing 'hick' clothes. Do everything else exactly the same. Then you have a money shot.

    (still good as is, of course)
