"Now it seems I've forgotten my purpose in this life.
All the songs have been erased.
Guess I've learned from my mistakes.
Open the past and present.
Now and we are there.
Story to tell and I am listening.
Open the past and present.
And the future too.
It's all I've got and I'm giving it up to you"

powerful! very provocative and very striking. I have done something similar, but in b&w...kind of like a newspaper photo. I think the colouring is great, the muted tones and then the vibrant and violent blood.
Reminds me of Richey Edwards' lyrics. He used to write everything for the Manic Street Preachers until he dissapeared in 1995...one of his lines that stays with me is
'i hurt myself to get pain out'
this is a fantastic piece of art.

This looks as though it could be very photojournalistic, not at all staged. And for that, I like it very much. Great work.

this is the best picture I have seen all day! I love how you don't show her face and only one hand. this reminds me alot of the of old fashion horror movies where the ones killed were always attactive younger ladies. but for some reason, my favorite thing about this is that her bra and underwear don't match, so it seems as though it wasnt posed. this is an A+ in my book.

i like the discoloration - the contrast of her lips and hair with the skin..
how the image was cropped.. i mean, the angle choosen also.
how we dont see her face give a bigger story. everyone can die this way.
it means a lot~

Right when I saw this photo, thats what I thought of, death, violence. It looks like there was some sort of struggle involved in her life before this. I really, really like this picture, the aura of darkness, of pain is so strong. It's an awesome shot, and you really managed to capture the image you were going for.

I believe that this is a great shot. I think the angle, focus and lighting are great...for THIS picture. It looks grungy and more than anything-- realistic.

A bit on the cliche side of photos because of the bathtub scene suicide theme. But overall I think you mastered this shot quite nicely. I loved every bit of it.

Great picture and very realistic. It almost disturbing to look at. And I love the choice in the song to go with the picture. It really makes me look and think about the subject matter of the picture more. Great job.

technical side of things..i don't know if this is a scan but it isn't really well focused. lighting could also be improved as atm there is little tonal contrast between the wall and the subject, the blood could also be made to stand out more with better lighting.

DistortedSmile Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2004  Hobbyist Photographer
The idea was that it was out of focus. And lighting was a bit of a prob; you try 'lighting' a subject in the shower room of the oldest halls the uni owns ;p

Thanks :)

Its this *really* foul smelling mix of ketchup and blackcurrent jam, with nail varnish and other random crap in to thicken it; my models hate it with a passion lol. Thats why i haven't done any 'head wounds' yet, they draw the line at having it plasterd to their faces! :giggle: Im so mean to my flatmates!

Thanks for the comment :hug:
