yah, Iím hoping it will do ok. I kind of left the interpretation open a bit because *I feel* this can be taken 1 of 2 ways. Hope it doesnít get trashed 2 much by all of you critics out here. Thanks in advance for all of the comments!

I love this one, Ben; it's really stellar. You pulled the emotion into it really, really well, and the white background just brings out the whole contrast of the picture.

Keep it up, dude!

I love the unique interpretation, the close crop just pulls you right into the picture.

The tears are a bit distracting. The don't look real and it takes away from the photo. Besides that, it really makes me think.

I'd say so tears/sweat are little too dramatic already.
