    To me, this is only just ... underexposed.
    Way too dark. Not even the lit up parts show clearly. I have to squint and wish for my eyes to get adjusted to the darkness, which they won't do, of course, since it is not really dark all around me.

    Light from below, however, is one guarantee for a creepy look! So you chose well there!

    Haha.. Yeah, all I see is a black image with a few seemingly random slightly less than black spots. Not sure what I'm really seeing here.

    What we're meant to see is the same as can be seen (more clearly because of its tiny size) in his avatar. I recognise as much. But to my mind, no matter how clever the idea, this photo cannot stand on its own. Not as dark as it is now.

    The exposure is perfect IMO... I can't see how someone would think that increasing the exposure in this photo would increase the "creepiness." Which is the goal of the photographer.

    is this shot from the exorcist "just.... underexposed" as well?

    Odd... my monitor at work must be lacking in some respects... I couldn't make out ANY details at work, but now that I am at home, I am on my laptop, and I can make the shot out perfectly. I now have a MUCH higher opinion of it, and in going for a creepy shot I think you did a very nice job!
