What an asshole-ish thing to say. Giving actual criticsm to help someone out is a lot nicer then just out-right insulting them and their work.
Anyway op, I think the use of Master chief doesn’t really suit the original image and the background map doesn’t really suit it either (In the movie, it was a dug out hole on the surface of a (the?) moon. Also, the pose is a little off, as it looks someones suprised Master chief as he was in the middle of walking, while the original looks a lot more casual, but tense. You also could of altered the lights to have the same 4 by 3 the oiginal picture did. Also, it’s all a bit to tightly packed in, and you could of used a slightly wider angle to give more distance between the lights and the chief.
The lights look alright, but they definetly need to be more bright in the middle of their source, like the image. Also, since the shot is on a weird angle, it kind of disrupts the flow of the original image, and seems kinda unnesecary. Also, the glowing blue wire really needs to go.
