This is Daria, my beautiful 16 year old step-daughter. She was the perfect model and didn't complain once about the discomfort the zip must have caused her (and she survived me shouting "open your eyes as wide as you can!" with every shot ;-). Thanks angel.

WOW! I didn't see the zipper mouth at all in the thumbnail, frankly it changed my whole view of this photo. The hair is really well done, along with the hand gesture and facial expression, It makes it look like a speaker is being blown behind her. Zipper mouth makes a great metaphor and its a good oxymoron. I think you cropped it a little close to the head, I would have left much more of a background and had more clarity in the shot.

I like the expression and the framing. The overall effect is gimmicky, though.

Strong idea and prop use. I'd prefer less direct lighting with key light from the side, but this lighting actually seems to work for this title and idea. Even disturbing as intended, it is striking.

This is the best of the bunch I've seen yet for 'Silent Scream' or similar themes. Very good lighting. Nice, sharply focused. Non-obtrusive background. Something interesting to look at (mouthpiece). Should do ok with this. Good luck in the challenge.
