Someone missed their train?
Someone broke their clock?

I'm sure it's much less prosaic in meaning and it's very interesting, Alda.
Good work.

no it is good Alda.. every work of art says something.. though here, it is difficult to connect the clockwork in the fore and the hazy painful / yawning (but I think you intended pain..).. the title does relate it to time.. then the destroyed pier.. but does time have to do with the painful face behind? one thing is that the time flies away.. time is the destroyer.. then the face - memories, past.. nothing definite but so many things at once..

My life is in a bit of a mess at the moment, and this partly reflects some painful personal stuff. I won't say more than that, but the screaming face and time running out is very pertinent to my life right now.

take care, Alda.. I always thought you had a beautiful life.. time heals everything.. keep the faith.. If I may suggest.. I have told the same to a couple of my friends.. if you think it is too complex.. note down your thoughts.. that helps in avoiding running in circles.. .. take care..

A lot of things to sit and view whilst allowing ones mind explores the stories within this wonderfully imaginative image..

The rock face signifies strength and solidity; even if you don't realise you possess those qualities at the moment.
The clock and the arms reaching out from behind it; time doesn't run out - it is what it is. How you choose to spend that time is what defines your attitude towards it.
The screaming face; when life is unfair sometimes, we all need to let rip and vent our feelings somehow. We're only human, after all.
The jetty; water represents the emotions and the jetty could signify your current uncertain path across those emotions. However, it can also be a bridge to somewhere else as well ...

I obviously don't know what situation you're currently facing, but an image like this one which is created out of adversity is always strong and soulful. On a purely artistic level, whether you think it's what you wanted to achieve or nor, or even if you think it's finished or not, it's an incredible piece of work.

As you've enabled mods, I've taken the liberty of doing one tiny tweak - I added a solid colour adjustment layer in PS, set to a grey-blue colour, a Difference blend mode and 20% opacity. Using a solid colour overlay can often pull all the disparate elements of an image together to give a more cohesive feeling. I really hope you don't mind me doing that, and that your current situation evens itself out soon.

I can't seem to open the mod - when I click on it, it takes me to my own image to download for modifications. Thanks for the UA - much appreciated. Grin

Rather than clicking 'Download Photo' on the modifications tab, are you clicking on my mod first and then clicking on the option underneath it to 'View large version' (which should open in a new tab)?
