Thanks a lot everyone. I'm very glad of this ribbon because I knew this was such a particular shot that many people wouldn't have liked it, as the contrasting votes demonstrate.
Ciao :)

I noticed some of the comments were quite fitting and ironically funny.

Although I do not find the holocaust to be funny, I just have a great love of puns.


what makes you think this shot stood in any connection to holocaust (not implying he wasn't but he doesn't mention it anywhere and from my point of view i can't see the connection so i'm just interested understanding your thoughts)?

great shot btw, paolo!


I didn't want to represent the holocaust, not only. I meant to represent the "scream of freedom" of any man behind a wall of a prison.
Ciao, Paolo :)

Beautifully conceived and executed. My challenge favorite and one of only two "10 votes" from me this time.

My favorite of the challenge, love the composition and the tone. The blurring snowflakes and subject matter seem to give this a desperate feel, very cool.

I am a little unsure why you used the photo hanging on the barbed wire (as opposed to using the hands maybe) and I am a little be uncertain of the meaning in this photo

Very dramatic. The falling snow adds a lot to the atmosphere. Just wish the barbed wire was more clearly detached from the background.

Wow, everyone is going for big contrast in this challenge! Interesting shot and really different concept that fits the challenge. Just a little too darkened to really grasp the entire shot and all of its nuances.
