I am intrigued that entries seem to equate lonely/loneliness with despair.

You can be surrounded by tons of people and still feel as if you are alone.

Ever travelled abroad, not understaning the language and having a bad day? That's feeling all alone.

Ever had a REAL bad day at work and you feel that no one understands or cares? That's feeling all alone too.

A homeless person sleeping in the street with busy people walking by and not even acknowleging his/her existence. That's all alone too.

Being all alone has all sorts of physical, mental, social connotations and I could go on and on...

That's very true... but try conveying some of those ideas in a photo.

Do you really have to "remind" voters of this? Seems pretty obvious to me...

A single object or subject, composed and shot TO GIVE A FEELING of loneliness or solitude.

Itís weird that most of the entries are showing the sad side of being alone. On the contrary the photo of a girl running on a beach with a pink top, really brings a positive happy feeling across.

maybe most ppl were depressed when they made their photos. this could happen in this cold, grey, wet autumn weather :-) (at least here it is so)

From what I understood, viewing the object or subject had to GIVE ME a feeling of loneliness and somebody happy just doesn't make me feel that way. I would at any time take a happy feeling than a sad one, but loneliness is sad for me. I don't say that somebody can't be alone and happy, but seeing him or her, won't make me feel lonely myself.

I don't think we are supposed to talk about specific photos while the voting is still going on. Lighting voting is still open for another 3 days and All Alone goes on for 2 more after that.

Perhaps I missed it, but I don't see any discussion of a particular photo here. This is the "current challenge" forum, so I'd expect people to be talking about the current challenge, but of course, no specific photographs.
