I know what depression feels like. It feels like this. Banal details intruding sharply from the sides. Important features dark and distorted.

To a depressed person this image looks almost hopeful and marks the end of a dark cycle: the sound of whispering leaves, distant voices and soothing murmurs

My top pick in the challenge. You've chosen to depict depression obliquely, as an irrationally overlapping dichotomy. As involving a daily private battle between two sides of the same coin. Sharp and fuzzy. Light and dark. Anchored and adrift. Found and lost. Congratulations on your artistic insight and on not trivialising this complex and debilitating affliction. Your photograph is all the more eloquent for its subtlety. Plus it's a beautiful, original and interesting photograph in its own right. Please accept a 10 and the poisoned chalice of an Order of the Thumb. Thank you.
