This is my a candid of my grandfather and my sister, laughing over something stupid my Grandmother (my Grandpa's wife) did. My Grandpa is currently dieing of cancer, and has about 2 months left to live. For me this photo truly symbolizes life, as he continues to enjoy the little things, and forgets that his time is ending.

Not sure how the photo will do, probably not great, some slight motion blur on my sister which is really pissing me off!

Inappropriate comments..questioning your ethics if I understand the inuendo. Other than the slight blurring this is just wonderful, full of life and emotion, the coloring is eye-catching.

I love your photo, and after I read about what you said about your Grandpa I really felt the emotion in it.
I hate to have to do this, but I must correct your spelling, dying, not dieing....sorry, but I really do love your photo, you captured a precious moment (which is what photography is all about) and you'll always have this photo to look back on and remember him.

Without the title I would have no idea what this picture is saying, why is he dying?

composition is great, but something in the post processing has caused an incredible loss of texture. I think it would have benefitted from those details being left in, though its still great.

He looks pretty healthy to me! :) Nice contrast... good soft lighting. Use of black and white is appropriate too!

Great photo, very crisp and very good contrasts. I don't get the sense the man is dying though. I still like it!

Great candid. I like the soft focus. The only thing distracting here, is not even in the picture. It's the title. It shoes the picture right in for a sympathy vote. Nonetheless, for the picture's merit alone, I give it an 8.
