|Hey, I didn't vote in this challenge so I'm coming to leave you a message now. By the way, it also irritates me when a picture of mine does worse than I expected and no one leaves me comments. COMMENTS, PEOPLE.
I had never heard the lyrics quoted in the title before today and when I saw the shot my first impression was that the white was a mistake and that the "damage done" referred to the bending of the spoon. In other words, I bet a lot of people didn't even get the reference. It wasn't until I read in your description that it was a song lyric that I realized the white represented heroin (and, of course, we don't get the description when voting).
Even if I had understood the reference, while I like the symbolism of the white powder, I feel that it detracts from the beauty of the image. For me it ruins the pretty contrast of the red against the blue. Without the white the picture is composed only of two bright primary colors (blue/red). The white muddles that starkness, imo.
If I had voted on the contest and had not understood the reference of your title, I would have given you a 5. If I had understood I would have given you a 7.
