    I like the mood of the pic. Might try to tone down the highlights on the forehead/hair. Could probably bring some detail back with Recovery in PS.

    Pretty damned well done if you ask me. Taking pictures of statuary is pretty hard... you run a big risk of getting an "inventory shot". Not so with your shot here. You have definitely brought out a creepy feel that is probably mostly dormant in normal light. Well done.

    So Im not the only one that finds this cherub possessed. Actually as a general rule cherubs creep me out but yours has captured the perfect creepy factor. Im curious what is in the dark on the left side or right shoulder?

    I really like the close up distortion going on here, it lends a surreal quality to the photo that you just know was taken in a cemetery anyway.

    Good work.

    Creepy! But good! It reminds me of one of the scariest movies I have ever seen.... The original "The Haunting". Freaky!
