This is actually a very difficult picture to critique... It's tricky because it's such a quirky idea, and so well executed. I suspect some montage-ing (some of the cast members are lit from different sides, as well as more minor variations in lighting), but it is amusing, and I am sure that everyone involved loves it.

1,000 pixels don't do it justice, I reckon, and I think it's a brilliant shot. I just can't suggest anything that would make it better! (The lighting won't spoil it for anyone but the most uptight techie perfectionist, i would say. It's interesting to spot the inconsistency, but the power of the idea is so great... The use of monochrome for the print in the picture, and the different grouping of people in the colour and B/W versions are lovely touches.)

Thanks for your kind comments guys, Dudler I wasn't really expecting that good of a critique and I thank you for that - I would love to enter this in a competition but I guess most people would blank it out being manipulated.

Very well done.

Reduce red bias in the colour part (colour balance, cyan +5, Yellow +10); and if you put one or two shadows under the pointing fingers it will help give it a 3D impression. Ive added a couple in the mod.

Good work,

That's the sad thing about competitions.
Do your own thing and don't shoot for judges. Personally I've not seen anything quite like this before so I applaud your idea. Certainly better than a standard boring group!
I'm sure the whole family will love this. It's a great idea and done very well. Not an insignificant amount of work has gone into this.
