Just some quick thoughts about a thought process you might want to go through when voting on fear. It's almost a decision tree -- I'm not going to go through every single possible combination, but I hope I go through enough. Probably too late to do any good now, though.

Does the subject of the photo frighten me? If so, easy to go from there.
If not, would it often frighten other people? (ie I'm not afraid of spiders, but others often are.) If those don't apply, than maybe it's a photo of someone being afraid -- can I see a person being afraid in the picture. No person in the picture but there's an animal -- is it possible the animal's afraid? Whatever's in the picture doesn't seem to be afraid of anything, is it possible that the picture is supposed to represent a fear? Maybe it's titled "Claustrophobia" and it shows people jam-packed into a subway car?

If you've gone through all those choices and STILL can't find something "fear" related, THEN I'd suggest maybe there isn't anything in it -- however, there's always the off chance that you can go back to the fact that maybe the photographer has an unusual fear -- I'm afraid of pencils, so I can think of nothing more frightening then a coffee mug full of freshly sharpened pencils. (That's an example of somehting unusual, not actually a fear of mine. *grin*)

This is probably useless, but it's late and I feel like rambling.
