End of the world

By leead  
Perhaps a heavy image (or complete bollocks), but I tried to create an image of the human race walking towards the end of the world. The bright light on the horizon symbolic of a thermo-nuclear explosion.
Japan, where I live, is currently toying with idea of developing a small nuclear arsenal-at least the government is- much to the glee of the Bush administration.

For obvious reasons, until now the country has been a staunch objector to nuclear weapons, and given the fact there has been 2 nuclear mishaps in the last 6 years here, I find the idea ludicrous. I guess humans couldn't be accused of being the smartest creatures on the planet.

Whey hey, you're back :o)
...this is excellent, I think you achieved what you set out to, the bleakness of the toning is perfect.
