|I gave this a 9. I thought it was a very powerful shot, with a story behind it. Probably got so dinged as it was not a full portrait of a head. But this is so emotive, I can honestly see this hanging in a gallery. I am sorry, I did not know your father was poorly, What a struggle for him and yourself. I think that the score affects you more, as you are pouring your heart into the photo as much as into real life. If you can, please do not stop taking photos of your Dad or life. Try to ignore the low votes and just be so proud of what you are communicating in your photos to some people. That is what counts in the end, that you did touch people, who have no idea about what is going on. All my love to you both.
Edited to add. On the my vote scale, you came in 5th place in the challenge.
