It is amazing how we readily project our feelings and emotions to inanimate objects. Consider the strong attachments that children place on them and then even as we grow up we still feel an affinity. Well, when seen, as this abondoned, it touches something deep within us. Hence the strength of this image. Here you have conveyed and awaken these feelings. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Very nice, really gives off a sense of despair and depression too. I really like how the grainy feel adds to it.

This is an emotional photo. Good job. I look at it and almost see an orphaned child that was forced to grow up too soon.

For me personally, your photo gives a sense of abandonment, lost and lonely. I like the use of black and white.

What makde this shot for me were the missing eyes on the bear. It's like a metaphor for adulthood. Perfect lighting. The texture of the concrete walls and floor is almost mimicked by the bear's fur, using black and white. Smart~~8
