Thanks for all the votes and comments. I had low expectations for this with regards to the vote. For some reason I thought this image was too out there, clearly I was wrong. Thanks again!

Pearl Jam.

Yes, I understand that every life must end, aw-huh,..
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, aw-huh,..
Oh I'm a lucky man, to count on both hands
the ones I love,..

Some folks just have one,
yeah, others, they've got none, huh-uh

Stay with me,..
Let's just breathe.

Practiced are my sins,
never gonna let me win, aw-huh,..
Under everything, just another human being, aw-huh,..
Yeah, I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world
to make me bleed.

Stay with me,..
You're all I see.

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see,..
No one knows this more than me.
As I come clean.

I wonder everyday
as I look upon your face, aw-huh,..
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, aw huh,..
Nothing you would take
Everything you gave...

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see,..
No one knows this more than me.
As I come clean, ah-ah...

Nothing you would take,..
Everything you gave.
Love you till I die,..
Meet you on the other side.

Cool shot. Congrats on your ribbon. This immediately reminded me of a God Lives Underwater album cover from about 15 years back. I'd wager I'm the only one on the planet to make that connection, but it's a really cool image. Well done.

Impact shot that has what it takes. On the tumb it's not impressive, but opening it up it really hits you square in the face with the sun and the clouds. Congrats here.

Way to make a boring sculpture photograph way more interesting

Crisp clouds, the solar star burst, and an interesting angle make this a very nice shot. Hope this ribbons. I would've probably liked better if the sun was behind the head - kind of a halo, but this works pretty well.
