I really like the creativity of this one and the thought that went into creating it.

Composition wise the toy is a bit too centrally placed, and I think a crop on the left would help the image considerably.

I ran this one through Lightroom - adjusting the exposure downward and adding a bit more contrast. I do wish we had modification ability.

I think this one is worth working on a bit more, and the idea is definitely worth pursuing further.

It is my opinion that a crop to the left would make the picture unbalanced and destroy the spiral effect. I love the delicate tones in the ducting, which I think may be lost if contrast is increased.

This shot hits the jackpot for me!

Thanks to you both for your comments, this was not my only attempt at this subject but I chose it because of the spiral effect as this was the subject. I did try a plain shot without the figure but felt it needed something to break the uniformity. I wanted the figure to add a comedic effect without dominating the shot and then chose a balance of grey scale to give tone in all areas of the shot.
