Agree with Campbell-- somber, an unusual take on the empty nest-- disturbing!
Well done and thought about!

It is not easy sitting still for over a minute Wink

I think you were very brave to do that on location at night. It's a good job you weren't found you could have have frightened someone to death.
Very creative.

Diana - you're braver than me, that's quite something you've achieved here, freaked me out a bit but then I guess that's exactly what it was supposed to do - thought provoking anyway!

The styling really shows that you work with deep and dark secrets...

I think I might have cropped a bit in on the right - while the "Rule of Thirds" is not actually a rule, it's often a good guide. But the composition as it stands definitely adds to the uneasy feeling (so perhaps the Rule is irrelevant in this context!)

Thanks for the extra comments .. John I wanted it central as it lines up with the corner of the barn, it all goes in to a V shape which I am trapped in, emulating the tense and tight part of my life that I am unable to escape from ....

have I ruined it now that I have put words to an image ?

thanks Ollie, Sarah, John and Rende too
