Well Cabal...this is not exactly my cup of tea as they say, and I know very little about digital imaging. But I must say I find this disturbing and yet intriguing.

I love the game.
I like the feeling you've captured in the passing figures. I see you've included another "nice" face-reminds me of the face on the train in another one of your pieces. Is there a conscious reason why you've put these tranquil, closed-eye faces on some of the vehicles?

Thanks, everyone. The death masks carry an ongoing theme of acting as automated slaves. I'll elaborate on that in a future pic. Every person's soul can be broken down into various numbers of individual slaves. Taking the death mask from a person removes a fragment of their soul. Some people can have ten death masks removed before their souls are taken completely apart. These ten death masks act as brothers and sisters, related from the same soul.

I think the figures blend in too well to their surroundings when looking at it from a distance. I'll probably push some shadows in to pull the figures out.

Where the Giants stand...I would like to see the alcove lit, with the shadows of those main characters cast..giving them a more permanent fixture rather than floating in some other dimension

I keep looking for some normality in this piece...something to relate to..so I can place myself in this scenerio.. I believe that would make them more powerful instead of allowing the viewer to watch from afar

I think trying to give an atmosphere...a mood of some kind using lighting..that may hold all together giving it a more real scene type feel

I really like this piece. It's evocative and causes one to pause. It reminds me of Joel-Peter Witkin's photo assembages....

I suppose, constructively, I'd say that it doesn't read as hving a lot of depth. the three figures along the back seem kind of static and their pacing distracts from the interesting passages in the foreground.

Great work.

I like it a lot as well, especially that there is so much going on, seems I discover something everytime I look.
