I love how much symbolism is present.

An image with great depth and done with true irony to present the end of an era! Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

The fall of communism, the fall of the Berlin Wall, but the fall of Coke? I guess cola wars were big in the 80's but I wasn't aware that Coke lost. Nice photo.

thanks for the well taken shot. I'm a little confused about the mixed symbolism of blood and coke. I'm seeing the breaking through to capitalism and those that died through Eastern Europe oppression...not sure why in the same shot. I'm interested to find out more.

Very strong message and nicely executed.

I think this is probably the most creative shot in this challenge. It did take me a few seconds to make the connection of all the symbolism and I think that anyone much younger than me may not get it. Only thing that bothers me a little is the white space to each side of the coke sign...I think it would have have benefited from cropping that off.

The best 8 pionts for you

Why the Coca Cola background :| if you had just kept it simple with the other props and blood this image would have had much more impact.

Clever. I really had to look at it! This is pretty darn good. The more I look at it, the more I like it. So original and well thought out. 10

Great concept. I am not sure I like the overblown white in the background, but great detail in the subject.
