Despair..yes. Extreme emotion...maybe. Good photo.

Good image overall and a good use of selective desaturation. However, the sadness isn't conveyed as well as some of the other images in this challenge involving pills. Good shot, nonetheless.

color pills tells me the pills are subject matter and not the despair

Spot editing!?!

I find that the blue coloring of the pills distracts from the photo. Nice photo otherwise.

While this does convey emotion and the photo is well taken, it lacks originality. I'd suggest spending more time exploring different ways to convey a meaning.

Like the selected colour of blue but the image is a little too staged

Good idea. Meets the challenge. 6.

Just a thought: I think it might have been more dramatic to have the pills in the foreground, and the person throwing his hand up to his mouth, somewhat blurred in the bkg.

Good use of desaturation. Sad image.

Nice use of a color you could isolate. Clearly shows an extreme emotion, too.
