    I was playing around with some long exposure shot's when I noticed the effect of walking in on one of them, It seemed to give a ghostly effect and thinking about it for a while I tried some shot's, Here's one of them.

    I know the background wrong but It's just the foreground I would like critique on please. Does this work or not, I can't decide on it.

    Many Thank's Tony

    maybe if you made it bw. the photo is way too filled with colour and i'd rather call it arranged noise than subjects and noise apparent. the idea is nice but too complex, it bothers the eye. that's why i think it would maybe be better in bw, it would really ease off the eye... :D

    I agree, there's too much yellow and green. Don't people stereotypically go white when they're scared? I think black and white would be a good thing to try, or at least desaturate the image.

    yeah this one looks better, it's not so distracting, my eyyes rest easy :D although the expression is absolutely ghastly :D but i guess it fits the profile. it's nice anyway but i also suggest trying the crop that furyofnature made, it looks nice.

    What was the reason behind making this shot? Are you working on a school project or something similar?
