Originally created for the chiaroscuro challenge but I decided to enter another image for that one.

I thought I found the perfect anagram ..... until a further check showed I spelled desperation incorrectly....never mind, I entered it anyway.

Wow, still managed to make it top 3, thanks. The score has been dropping all week with approx. 0.2 points per day....

Great shot, I knew I'd see it on the front page. Well done and congrats on the ribbon!

ETA: love the detailed shoot notes...yep the amount of work that goes into a shot like this is often something only other photogs can really appreciate.

Thanks, I spent quite some time to get the pose as I wanted, since it needed the express the desperation, it needed to show the mask, and I wanted the arms to pick up the light and show this balanced N shape, even though the body is almost perpendicular to the camera. I had to open up the left arm to show the mask, I had to push the right shoulder forward, elbows resting on a chair set at an angle, and then I had to put the hands flat on the head (2 seconds after pushing the remote ;-) ). A more natural "desperation" pose produced a much more messy picture that I did not like, with arms on the head, second arm hardly visible and mask hardly visible. It would not get the link with COVID across.

Great anagram and very emotive image. The negative space really emphasizes that.
