omg this was quite disturbing. Had to shake it off. Persuasive. The under-exposure on the upper/left adds to the mystery.

Great visualization of why we always need to use the safety bar everytime we cut with a chain saw! Sadly, a most horrifying end! :(

I like the dreariness and bloodiness of this. It almost seems like an organic process, or rather organ failure.

Wow, great idea and contrast between colour and bw. My favourite so far!

The left part of the image doesn't really add anything, but without it, the shot is unbalanced. A cropping quandry...

This is close to being excellent. It's at least a different sort of chain, and also the "life falling apart" imagery is good. I could do with a touch more contrast, lifting the red and dropping the blacks a bit.

I like the 'story' that this picture tells. For me the vignetting is a bit harsh on the left and there is something not quite bloodlike about the red, which does jar a touch. Composition wise this is great though

I like this shot and it's very creative. I didn't see it at first but then realized it's a heart made from the chain. I do feel that this would have benifited if you could have got the full chain heart in the photograph, but maybe you were going for a more subtle look. Love the perspective and again great idea!
