Awesome! But.. I would've photoshopped the cliff to look more like the drawing's cliff... :)

Woops, commented on wrong photo LOL But I tried and it didn't look right. Standing on a silver of pointed rock just looks wrong no matter how you look at it.

Well, you wouldn't have to make it as pointy but I think you should've extended the cliff more to give more emphasis.
The original drawing is very powerful because of it's triangle composition. It gives a great "life and death" feeling, which is appropriate because of the "dance with death" theme. The cliff and space under it represent death - cold, sharp, straight.
The characters on top of it represent life with their playful swirls and actions.
Ciel acts as the edge between life and death.
Alois and Claude are stiff in the drawing so that the viewers' eyes skip over them and go to Sebastian and Ciel, and this makes the viewers' eyes go in a triangle.
The nice addition in the drawing is the very long (though unrealistic) eye patch. The picture wouldn't be the same without its length, because it further accentuates the theme, and shows Ciel "hanging on a thread".

I don't really get the same feeling from your photo. I liked the drawing because it was very well planned out, and because the added details the eye could keep going in triangles without be bored. The photo doesn't feel as polished. The eye doesn't really know where to go. I know making the photo like the picture would take a lot of work, but I guess that's why there are professional photographers.

Does that make sense? :)

I wonder how long it took to get the timing just right to where you would get the eye patch and the tailcoats in the right motion. xP
