This is a great piece - everything from the cinematic effect to the the positioning of the chains speaks tones, and I love it. You've really given off the effect of a bloodsport circus, and I love it.
My own real problem is that hideous watermark - I actually have to squint to get by it. Do you really have that much of a problem with art-pirates? Must be a total bitch, but it's an absolute paramount piece and it's going into my favourites none-the-less.
