Good props, but I assume you mean this to be a photographic critique in this forum.

I suggest checking into ND filters to compress the latitude of the image. It seems that the latitude of the light exceeds that of your camera. Neutral Density filters compress the latitude. That way you won't have overexposure and underexposure in the same image. I know the idea of the image is to have high contrast, as seen in the films, but perhaps more even light in the shadows, with a few spots of high contrast in the highlights would help?

Fantastic job!

I'd add a little blue.

It seems really contrasty. What are you shooting with?

Agreed. Quite a few "hot spots" on your photo. A number 3 polarizer would do well there.

I agree with previous posters. You're losing detail on the right arm and the top right of the head. However, the props do look good. At first I thought you may just be posting a reference pic.

Question on those goggles you got there. I am looking to get a pair, now would you be possibly interested in making another?

Well,you´re right,the quality of that pic isn´t very good,It was shot with a JVC camcoder.I was just testing props and new locations for my Riddick-based shortfilms and comic-books.
My last teaser based on Butcher Bay:

I´m still editing the long version ,working with new cgi effects but it will take a little more time to finish.
I hope you like it.

This picture was taken inside a natural lava cave and without any photoshop effects.It´s the natural lightning effect that comes from a hole located on the top!

the picture isn't horrible, but if you want a better picture.
you should invest in a dSLR, simple as that =)

so what kind of feedback did you want again?
