I like this photo....lots of emotion here. I wonder how you accomplished the artsy effects, and I will check back later to read how you did it.

Nice work with this one. The mom looks like she's blurry a bit around the head but the rest of her looks pretty good. Excellent idea and pretty well done. I love long exposure shots myself. 8

I don't know how you did this but it works.

I can see you put a lot of thought into this but it came out too ghostly.

Nice idea. Looks like the "mother" moved a bit during the exposure causing her to blur

This shot really touched me, I must say you certainly accomplished what all photographers go for, and that is to touch your viewer with your shot, great job

Has to be the most emotionally strong photo I've seen in a very long time.

A too-literal interpretation of the title. Personally, I'd rather decide what I'm seeing in a shot like this than be told beforehand. Still nice, though...

Wonderfully dramatic idea. Composition is good. The ghostly daughter works quite nicely.

How do you get a clear ghost with no signs of movement going or coming from crying person?

A good shot here, like the idea of the girl in the background, well timed exposure here. Only thing would have been that I might have liked it a bit sharper. Think you were trying to show this as a soft focus, personally don't think it works though. 8

Powerful shot - like the ghostly cross through the daughter. Tighter cropping would eliminate all but the emotional message of this photo

Wow...what a powerful shot..very moving, as a mother myself..it gives me chills.

The only problem I have with the photo itself, is the cross behind the girl that is right in the middle of her back, although I know it couldn't be helped it is a bit distracting. 8
