obviously you were going for the silhouetted look.. but its not really working.. too much dark empty space and what is silhouetted is not recognizeable enough..

While I agree with dustin that there's just not enough light to give a full silhouette look, it does look like something out of a horror film... the fact that you can't tell for sure that it's a person makes it very creepy, and the blur of the fire only helps the effect. If that's what you were going for it worked.

thanks for the feedback. here's the original shot, same crop (which was just a bit off top and bottom), unprocessed.
