First I had an idea with "All my troubles seem so far away" but I re-submitted.

I was taken a look at the photos of my dad and saw this one of a graveyard. I decided to use it as background.

From the Critique Club

Very nice focus and lighting on the subject. Also good placement of the subject. As you know the photo is good as reflected by your score. But I feel a little more detail in the background, be it highlights or midtones, would of helped the overall image. And there is one place that keeps drawing my eyes and thats the perceived "V" in the middle of the photo caused by the tilt of the stone and tree. Being in the center it somehow wants to compete with the subject. I really would have really liked to see some detail on the side of the tree (if that is what is is) because it seems flat and splits the picture almost down the middle.

Overall good title with picture choice that a few adjust would of made better. I hope you find this critique helpful.
Thanks,
SDW

Knew this had to be yours... Great shot - very arty (*ahem*) and wonderful! ;-) Congrats on the high score & finish, although I thought it would actually be in the top 10.

I like this a lot for reasons of the two-part picture, the golden tones, and the contrasts. The symbolism of the binding is not accurate and prevents complete suspense of disbelief. Darkness relates to eyes, the only part left unbound - obviously because they are pretty ones! ;-)
