You have captured a very powerful and emotive image here Roz. The desat works very well to emphasise the message it portrays. Well done.

Is that what really happened, or did you just happen across this roadside marker? Bummer either way for the kid.

You capture a lot of feelings in this picture, with an issue that is widely at large. Its just a pitty that these are the last words of so many. I really like this, 10/10

this photo has a strong message...i like photo's that actually impart something to think about. Your intoxicated title adds a bit of uncomfortable humor to the message...i'm curious if that was your intent.

Thanks for finding a way to show this - it was one of my concepts, but I couldn't figure out how to shoot it.
