    This is with my old Coolpix 5700. I'd like to reshoot with my new 20D, but I do like this one too. What do you guys think?

    I like this, for some reason I feel like someone evil is his shadow, coming to get him while he is offering himself up.

    How does it look in bw?

    Yeah, it's kinda creepy. I quick put it into B&W. It's a different look. Which do you prefer?

    i like this a lot! as for which one i'm not sure. i'm a huge fan of B&W but am leaning towards the color. :? great job! i like the the way multiple light sources gives an eery feeling to the shadow.

    Colour. The shadow looks cartoony in the B&W while in the colour shot provides a great metaphorical context.

    I prefer the color. The shadow makes it very interesting.

    I'm having a really hard time deciding which one I like better...I think I'm leaning juuuust slightly towards the color, though.

    I prefer the color, but I think for my personal tastes I'd clone out the shadow. Just my personal opinion though.

    I'm preferring the colour, as the light off the bronze is great.

    This reminds me about this gallery I went to about cigarettes. The artist made objects out of cigs, one of them being a crucified Jesus. Obviously all insinuating the deaths. Another sculpture made from those mass-produced coffin nails was ironically a coffin!
    Damn I wish I hade a camera then, the lighting was excellent as well, always bringing up the butts of the cigarettes. Just made for a good effect.
