Looks underexposed and oversaturated to me.

Agreed - and that places the color values and tones too close together, causing the subjects to blend into each other, making it difficult to identify the points of interest. I think I see what your trying to do Drake, contrasting the different shapes like that. It may also be a good candidate for b/w conversion.

Interesting b/w Drake.....hmmmm. The high contrast b/w is quite dramatic, but I'd still like to see more middle range/gray tonality from an image with a bit less contrast.

I'm sapearl. The lack of tonal range is holding this pic back.

Phil - if you can post the original JPG at a dimension of around 900x600 pixels I'll show you what I mean as far as b/w tonality. It's difficult to work with a high contrast image these size.

Definately looking better than the high contrast b/w.

I see what you're going for with the original; a real gritty, scary look. I think it's just a smidge overdone though. Tone down the contrast the tiniest bit, and maybe the saturation as well, and I think you'll have a good shot.

Also, maybe crop a tiny bit off the top.
