    Thanks for the comments and votes!

DK - It was easy to hold still for 15 seconds because the head was resting on a very dark sofa.

I looked at this on three different monitors and the amount of darkness varied on each. The original idea was to only show eyes in the dark, but didn't have time to figure out how to do it.

    This is a very effective image showing probably one of the most common fears we have.

    Good idea but just a bit too dark I think.

    You've portrayed this phobia really well, a difficult thing to do in such low light conditions

    Great concept, very well executed. Illustrates the phobia without resorting to melodrama. A top favorite. (The face may be a little TOO dark - it practically disappears on one of my monitors.)

    Very good presentation of the phobia. It might be better if the eye was a bit more visible but regardless it's in my picks. Well done.

    wow, subject still enough for 15 sec. Award for that alone! Tells the story well, and one of fear. Gets my attention.

    a fear of the dark here well caught. darkness is difficult to express.

    Great representation of a phobia! My only suggestion would be a slight lightening around the near eye to bring out the white of the eye slightly more while leaving the rest of the face in deep shadow. A high favorite.
