I'm just revisiting this shot. I just love it. I'm baffled at the lower scores, especially the 1s and 2s. Thanks for doing good stuff here!

I left this one for last to comment on because I really didn't know what to say. I'm guessing when you titled it sorrow you were talking not only about the expression on the woman's face but also the state of the paper it's on. The glare on the right side is a bit distracting and the quality of the paper really detracts on this one for me.

I have come back to this one several times, it does evoke an image that is hard to put into words. The above is strictly what my first reaction to the image itself is, disrepair, the water stains, the overall image projects just what the title says. And it does project that feeling to me when I look at it, maybe that is why I find it fasinating, yet distrubing at the same time.

A photo of a picture is hard case for dream or nightmare. I like the Image you took and there is no doubt the sorrow felt, just to much of a reach for me. Sorry 4

I'm glad you included the tattered edges here. Nice composition.

Would have wanted to see a subject of your own, rather then a image someone else drew.
