You were robbed. This should have placed MUCH higher. It just screams stock photo to me... Awesome job!

Yes, this is a strong image with immediate emotional response. Good use of desat.

I'm boosting this one up. On the second pass it jumped out at me. Not sure if it would sell as stock but it is a great shot.

Very captivating image, and looks like a little selective desat on it. Love the B&W and expecially the color of the rope/twine.

Very impressive! Would do well on a page in a magazine protesting something...the frayed rope makes this image stand out, well done!

it's a very poignant shot, but I am not sure what it represents, or what it would mean to the people that would see it were I to buy it as stock art.

Great job on the desaturation - I hope you could accomplish that with just the colour channels, because that doesn't look like it would be much fun to try with the history brush :). 8

Color vs grey works very good with this subject.
I like the photo but I think that stretched fingers, in a frustrated kind of way because the hands are tied, could add a lot more emotion to the photo. Now it is more like 'tied and indifferent about it'.

Depends on what the photo will be used for if it matters of course.

Not sure how you got everything black and white except for the rope but great photo. Very creative. Would love to know how you did that...

I am not a big fan of selective color and I think you color is to saturated, but I really like your concept.

I am a sucker for selective saturation and I think you nailed the colors here. I love it. 10

Idea is very good. But it's a bit confusing to understand if u're given little time to "read" this. Maybe if u used less cord, or if the hands were in better focus.

Beautiful color, I really like this. Would it sell though? I won't detract points because of that, since everything can sell. Just my thought.

A clean, sharp image which is interesting to see.
