i like the simplicity of the thought and vision to create this image.. this does invite thoughts.. this has the element of the duality of mind, like the previous image.. one part is the defaulter who has caught itself in such a mess.. the other is the regulator which always inspires us to be free of entanglements.. the regulator always pushes the defaulter to be free.. when both are in unison, you are absolutely free, and in a state of harmony and then you can be at your most vibrant and energetic self.. i think people should like to explore these images for their own sake.. it does clear mess of the mind a little..
simple but effective.. good choice of subject.
i think the biggest mistake in this is not the image but the title.. the title makes it too explicit and loses all the subtlety.. maybe 'only you can free me' would have been much better.. a good image should not go un-addressed just because of a title.. so be careful about the titles.. pls appreciate that the viewer is very intelligent.. he / she will get to it anyway.. he will feel better if he does by him / herself.. not led to it directly..
