Monsters, Ghouls & Other Horror Stories

Challenge has finished
Hello. This is the 3rd Challenge in the Disturbing Or Intense Series. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE RULES. Especially with regard to the SUBMITTED IMAGE SIZE. This one can be fun & tongue in cheek, or a serious statement about your issues with the Planet & life :) The title speaks for itself. Monsters & Horror Stories, Ghosts that haunt you, Monsters that pursue you. The fears you have experienced, encountered or collected in your travels through time & life. Anything goes, B&W or colour. Any processing. BUT, stick to the theme with regard to the subject matter & composition. Apparitions & Ghouls etc must appear, take shape & be enticed to pose as the main subject in your image. Ideally we must be able to see a story about yourself through the materializing of your Monster. Image quality & composition still counts. Be creative, but make a point. Most of all, have fun :)

I photographed this longicorn beetle which was about 60 mm long and those jaws about 5 mm each side, thinking of this creature biting chunks of flesh is real nightmare territory. Here I have made contrast and colour changes so it looks like its crawling up out of Hell!!!
