It's so cool how you've managed to combine this coloring and photographs together!
looks like all has been pre-made for this purpose only, very well composed!!!
I love the skeleton hanging on the tree, reminds me of The Nightmare Before Christmas.

This looks good, but i have a few criticisms as far as the "honesty" of the picture:
1. how is he hanging? wouldn't he/she just rest on the branches? he/she IS strung from the top, meaning other branches would get in the way. in order for this to work, he/she would need to be hanging from the bottom branch, which would have to be much higher off the ground.
2. i'm not sure, but i'm not entirely sure that the left over blood is entirely true to the way that corpses actually decompose.

if i seem nitpicky, just understand that i do actually like the picture, it's just that you've gotta take these things into consideration when you do this kind of stuff; as a viewer i have to be able to believe what i'm seeing, and when there's stuff like this, it hinders that.

Eerie, but wonderful. I love the droplets of blood that remain on John Doe's arm and legs. It's also a nice touch that there's a city in the background; where nobody has noticed a decaying body swinging from the tree. Great work indeed.

Very detailed, dark, terrorizing. Feels kinda like halloween. It's good.

Yah, creepy indeed. But I think the blood is a bit out of place... I don't know how to explain, but it would look more "natural" without it. He has no flesh anymore so.. And maybe you should darken the skeleton's white so that it doesn't strike so much as not part of the picture.
But I like the composition very much anyway. It looks so isolated and yet it's so close from people. Nice work :)

i think you could have reduced the "collage" effect a bit more. the webs are great!

Ooh, creepy. I really like the colours and the contrast between the skeleton and the darkness surrounding it. :)
