|Girlfriend, you have the monopoly on shots that you *could* critique technically, but that you won't because the emotive factor is so strong it overrides everything else.
to me, the coloring and pp you have chosen gives it that dreamy, surreal feeling that hangs around when we've lost someone we love. That feeling that we know it has happened, yet we still pick up the phone and start to call them, or expect to see them come around the corner at any time.
Also, whether intentional or not, the road is very powerful in this image. While the one we love is "behind" and is not moving, the road leads up and out of the frame, which is exactly what we have to do. Even though we ahve lost something so dear and important, the world keeps turning, and in our grief, we have to keep moving forward.
I'm hoping you are doing much, much better and on the road to recovery from the little holiday in the hospital (holiday, yea, right), and I hope that each new day helps you to become stronger and more hopeful on your road through life.
