This is a very good shot considering the message that you're trying to get across. The picture conveys a lot of emotion, and possibly a mixed message. The girl is hiding her face, which shows sadness, maybe even depression. Her hair is damp/wet. She's sitting in a bath tub, maybe she's crying. The picture raises lots of questions. You can tell the girl in the picture is going through something. The vision of the picture is good, the girl hiding her face really adds to it. The originality of the picture is good too, I like how you took the shot. The technique there is basic though. The impact of the picture really hits hard. Wonderful shot, keep it up! :)
(Not really the best critique, forgive me if I was too harsh, or not harsh enough)

I could never give as good a comment as some people already have on this wonderful photograph, but I will try and say what this means to me. :)

As usual, your description goes perfect with your wonderful picture and what I'm feeling right now.

Love is a f***ing pain. Some say breaking a bone hurts more. But thats on the outside, its physical pain.
A broken bone is nothing compared to a broken heart. WHY? Because a broken heart in on the inside, emotional pain, sometimes irreparable. A broken bone, on the outside, physical pain, can always be fixed.
A baby's bones are fragile and its heart is strong to begin with. As we grow older, our bones become stronger as our hearts become the most fragile thing ever. But somehow, they both take the load of our complicated lives.

Love it.. :') <3

you are so welcome! and your expressions in your amazing photography are what make those beautiful words come out! :D

The beauty of art is everywhere and within everyone. :)

I'm making progress on getting better, but there are always bad days just like good days... October tenth 2012 will always be a mixture of both.

I simply love seeing this wonderfully poetic scene. It is so drenched in implied emotion, and your hair tells such a tale of feeling and enduring power, as our eye follows each strand on its winsome way down your back, creating a melody of its own. :heart:

i am speechless,i am very good with words but when i read your comments i feel like i have the vocabulary of a four year old,thank you soooooooo much<3
:laughing: Oh, thanks so much for the kindness. It is truly easy to be inspired by your works and have so many words come to mind. I'm so glad we have such a wonderful affinity. The lovely and distinctive way you express yourself in pictures, echoes so perfectly with my need to describe the beauty and meaning I find in them. It's such a grand, aesthetic balance, and I cherish it very much. I hope you will create your pictures for a long, long time. :heart:
