i'm surprised people didn't get this one. obviously they haven't been to a funeral. whether this is the deceased or a mourner, doesn't matter to me. the point is there and it's lit and shot well. should have scored higher, IMO.

Had to think about this for a while...more of the body for context, even blurred out would have communicated the theme to me more clearly. I otherwise imagine a live person holding a rosary just like that.

Lovely shot and while it or could say lots of things, "death" doesn't come across to me.

Something seems odd about this - tight framing / arms & buttons coming from mid air / lighting emphasis on the hairs

Simply stunning. Like rest in peace? Love the tone, the symbolism, the colors! Love how this can have so many interpretations. Love it!
