Wow. A top 10 with a 6.2....

I knew the lamp would be a love/hate element. I suppose compositionally, it might have worked better without it. But I wanted both a color counterpoint, and an external symbol of hope which the figure refused to see for being so deeply (perhaps stubbornly) oblivious. BTW, the figure is me.

Well done. I love the feel and the composition of this shot. It has a grungy yet finished look to be envied.

I love this one - love the tones and composition. I am probably alone, but I don't like the candle at all. 8 and would surely have been a 10 for me without it. Voted earlier. Top ten.

I like the mood here. I think it would have been more powerful without that lamp.

Nice composition. I am not sure that this pose evokes silence for me though. With the title and the position I tend to hear an occasional sob or too.

Amazing colors! The salt lamp is a great accent/contrast to all the greens. Adding to my favorites. She looks very depressed... and silent. Hope it will ribbon.
