Really clever, engaging concept. I think you could have done a better job if you'd given more consideration to the typography however. Still, a great photo!

Thank you. What do you think I should have done with the typography?

I would have gone for a simple black sans-serif font - serif is associated with printed type, not digital.

Something a bit blocky would have been nice, but the main thing is the sans-serif. Center the text on two lines in the middle of the paper and it would have made the paper itself look a little better balanced, I think. That way the text would be replacing - in place - the facial expression.

Don't sweat those details too much though; type is a hard thing to use effectively - particularly when you're the artist not an outside observer. As I said, it's a great photo :)
