This isn't what I wanted to do. I really wanted to go into a theater and take a shot. And then bring it back and work in expert editing to add fire to the drapes. Someone in the audience would be saying "I wish I could yell fire!!"

Unfortunately, it just didn't work out to go see a movie. Although there are actually some movies I want to see. :)

This was a last minute entry, because I really wanted to do something for the challenge. It seemed to fit in with the discussion in the freedom of expression thread about whether not speaking is ever a form of expression, or whether something needs to actually be spoken.

It also had the double meaning of deciding whether or not to keep silent.

That's actually what it feels like to me. Someone that's afraid, and wants to keep silent because of fear, and yet is unable to do so because of his/her beliefs being too strong.

I'm rambling. But thanks for the comments. I've dropped .11 in the last 4 votes, so with 3 hours I'm not sure how it will end up. I'll guess I'll find out in the morning. :)

Last minute entry? Impressive. It works perfectly: the pose is very inspired, the grungy texture is a nice choice, and you can't go wrong with B&W for such image. Congrats on the nice finish.

Congratulations on your HM Wendy, I can't believe this was last minute! I saw your comment on dropping .11 in the last 4 votes, mine did the same except it was more than that, oh well guess that is just the voters expressing themselves!

That is indeed the dilemma and I like that you have addressed it. Good illustration of the concept.

Astonishing. So well thought out and executed. Love the overlay, or whatever it is that makes the patten too.
