I adore this photo, everything is perfect.

Even the title displayed at the top of the page, well thought.

Well done

I think it's a touch flat, I's like to see more modelling on the centre of the book, where the pages come out and on the 'blood' * oozing of the left.

*quotes justified I hope!

that is a right in the eye picture... a play with a light source on one side or both at the back might give it more 'depth' - the idea is excellent..

I think it is a little bit flat, it's needs a touch of depth. Would you be able to experiment with the knife sticking into the book, as if it had been stabbed? You could then also try experimenting with blood running down the blade to the book or make it look like the book is bleeding.

Thank Dan for your comments
I am planning to stab the book with a smaller knife and play around quite a bit with the blood and lighting hopefully in the next day or two look out for a newer version of this picture.

Good to see you back!
Think it's a great idea but perhaps could have a little more atmosphere. Did a mod, hope you like it.
