A symbolical approach. I suspect that a lot of voters will only see the obvious band aid while in fact there's much more going.

I've tried to insert multiple signs of an inhibited personality in this photograph

The band aid over the mouth, which is the most obvious sign.
But also the closed eyes, hand on the head to shield of the head, hair in front of the eyes to "avoid" possible contact even more, not looking into the camera, the frame close in front of the face while behind the head there's more open space, and finally rather dark and closed instead of light and open.
A closed personality, isn't she?

I'm curious how this will do next to closed doors, closed windows, closed-signs, closed roads etc. which will show so obviously the theme of this challenge.
My prediction? a 4.6 to 4.8. And I'm optimistic here :)

Much higher than I expected, although I like my entry very much myself. Obviously, otherwise I wouldn't have entered it.
Thank you for both nice comments, Neil :)

I like this image and hope it appears in the top end of this challenge. Not an original idea but has a real feel.
