Never read the book lol, but had the idea in my head of a broken heart in a cupped hand so searched for book titles with "broken heart" in them. Found this one and printed a 2 colour heart to cut in half and got my girlfreind to hold them for me.

Light is from my flashgun and I lay a black backdrop on the floor for my girlfreind to hold her cupped hands over.. easy setup, simple enough photo but i liked the result.

Lighting is good and the elements of the composition fits very well with the title. But the composition just lacks that something, some 'umph', that would elevate it from just being good to great. Trying to put my finger on it. I think - I think what it is, is that there is little drama/tension. Let me clarify what I mean. The heart is just 'handed to' us - it is held together whole within the confines of cupped hands. There is little tension or wonder if it will be mended. It is almost there. Hmmm, perhaps having one hand emerge from the bottom left corner with the red half of the heart and another hand emerging from the top right corner with the black half of the heart would introduce tension by making the viewer wonder if the two halves will unite as one??? Just a thought which you can take with a grain of salt.
