This is a location where a teenager died after losing control of his car, to my knowledge high speed and lack of experience were to blame. He was 16 years old, this happened almost a year ago, the flowers and the new tree in the place of the one he hit are fresh. I did not know him, but my heart goes out to his family and friends, hopefully in his death he taught some other teens to be careful and perhaps saved some lives in the proccess

Here we go with the TeddyBears again...LOL....nice lighting, subject too centered

So if the bear is meant to be a child, that means your kids are stringing ropes around their necks at 11pm... yeah, I think I will be too.

If this is a photo of an impromptu memorial of some kind, I think the effect is lost. A wider shot of the entire area would have more of an impact on the viewer. At first glance, this just looks like a picture of a choking teddy bear. muckpond

Very strong photo. I assume this is a memorial. For the first time I say back away a bit to show more

This is an interesting photo and I like the angle of the lighting as well. I'm not sure that I understand the intention though... - setzler

This looks like it might be a shrine or memorial to a child, however, the angle/crop doesn't show that with any certainty. The flowers and ballon suggest this is a small part of a larger scene and it might have been better to pull back a bit to "see the forest for the trees" so to speak. The colors are very nice (especailly the bow). Nice job ~ Myqyl ~

An excellent message, and a well done picture.

IMO the relationship between the title and picture are key elements in this challenge. Are you trying to give us all a guilt complex? God job.

It's a good clean shot, but perhaps pulling back a little so we can see what the bear is attached to would help us understand it a little better.
