    You captured something special here - I got a real sense of foreboding.

    I love the creativity in this photo. I was so drawn to the clown, I did not see the sleeping girl for a while. In my favs.

    beautifully lit. Definitely evokes a fright mood.

    I never understood clowns. There's nothing funny about these terrifying beings!!!

    Excellent photo. Well done. I'm sure all clowns looked happy when I was a child.

    Great composition. I nearly missed the girl in the foreground, as she is so washed out in comparison the the clown - perhaps a bit more colouring or detail would help.

    The contrast between the weirdly-lit clown in sharp focus and the girl in the darkness are very effective in creating a sense of threat - very well done. (Would prefer the girl's face to be just a tad sharper, as I almost didn't realize what I was seeing at first.) Definite favorite.

    I thinking the lighting and dark shadows help to make this a very scary shot. Great choice for the challenge. Could it be even better with a bit less of the foreground? A fave.

    This one captures the phobia very well. Great idea to have the girl sleeping in the foreground and out of focus. I dislike clowns even more after seeing this :-)

    Appropriate for theme. The foreground reflection(?) is distracting.
