    Superb exposure… did you acheive the black background?

    Talk about the dark twist of Parkin – Agreed that black background with perfectly exposed image is awesome!!!!!

    Incredible control of the light – looks like you’ve been pulling the strings yourself in that department

    now this is one of these images that you wish was your own – i so wished i had done this – it is FANTASTIC – beautifully rich and wonderful strong contrast of black and white, which i adore – on top of that, it is classic and original.

    Very very good work.. It looks great in black and white.. I love how the “puppet master” is barely coming out of the shadows, like one who bids us to do his will, but is never seen. Really a great shot.
