It does leave you with a feeling of sadness but that is reality and you captured it well.

As presented, and especially with the title an intensely depressing photograph. I do hope that the lives of these people are fuller than this moment captures. A really quite outstanding piece of photo journalism, and a photo that I intend to revisit. Powerful work.

This is truly sad. I hate giving a pic like this a high score but I suppose I have to. May we never forget our parents...and may our children always remember us. Not the best processing 9but Im no fundi either) and lighting could be better...but the meaning in this carries it ver strongly fro me at least. Exposure is not there entirely and could do with contrast. maybe ask the experts :) 8

Very original, nice quality image. Those were my thoughts before i even read your title (a sign of a good photo - i.e. doesn't need words to explain it), I like that you chose "Exit" instead of "Death". Very tasteful of you :) well done and hope you ribbon with this.
