    Should this be in the critique forum? What specifically do you want critiqued?
    At first I saw this photo and thought 'Oh no, not another one of these.'
    You seem to have a recurring style... that I personally am not a huge fan of. But then I saw the book, and I think it really makes this shot. I like your idea, but the style of this shot (blurred, creepy figures on a dark background) really annoys me.

    It's just my opinion, there's no need for sarcasm. Plus, you posted it in the critique forum to begin with, so you need to be open to criticism.

    I do enjoy your style, but one thing I think would help alot of these, and this is just my opinion, is having a little bit of base exposure. I know you are going for the black background, with body parts popping out here and there, but for me, a bit of exposure to the entire scene, and I'm not talking much, would set it off, while still retaining the eerie dark feeling.

    Matt I know exactly what you are saying. One of these days I want to get one of those portable studio things. With an actual black background.
    In these pictures.. I have a window to the left covered by a green curttain, A green wall with an offwhite ceiling and an unfolded maroon futon to stand on. These are all long 10 plus exposures up to 25 for this one so i can use iso 100 and I have to adjust it accordingly to make up for the light coloered walls. I take them in B&W then adjust them later so the background doesnt come through. I dont have photoshop available right now as Im not at home. all I use is Irfanview.

    An annoyance that you have to try and explain your photographs … they don’t speak for themselves and often do nothing for me

    Looks like it belongs on a emo/hardcore album cover... something like "Senses Fail" or "From Autumn To Ashes"

    Doesn't really pull at my heart strings but I'm sure there is a whole following that would love it... It does have a genre and place to belong.
