Much like your work with the horror movie posters and scenes, subtle and suspenseful rear it's frightening head. I do not envy the occupant of this apartment, I enjoy the shading and your lines are all smooth (no jarring differences between stock images). The visual, in a purely aesthetic way, is incredibly arresting. I took half a point only because the theme of a haunted apartment isn't too new (and the hands on the door thing reminded me of the kiefer sutherland film Mirror) but otherwise full marks for your other categories. Another awesome (I need a new word) job.
What do you think?

16 out of 16 deviants thought this was fair.

There are pieces that are instantly visually arresting, through composition or color scheme. This is one of them. I didn't browse past this because of the palette, stopping to look. Then I saw the hands on the door, the rich lighting on the sofa, and I was hooked.

However the only ONLY thing that pulled me away was the girl in the corner. Where the aforementioned sofa and details of the room have lighting in every fold and crevice, and correctly, the lighting across her body looks flat and she looks sort of cut out, and it isn't because of the angle of the light. I think you should really brush some extra lighting details into the wrinkles of her dress at the very side at least. I also don't understand the patch of light on the very back of her arm by her elbow. I understand the need to fudge the lighting slightly so she is more visible, but the light and shadow should imo be exactly inverted there.

Hell, the piece could be even effective when YOU are the target and the girl is removed altogether. But I'd like to keep her.

Anyway. This is excellent and save for my humble opinion a very beautiful deviation.

This photo is lovely. Do you mind if I use it in a book I'm working on (I would give you full credit)?
