IN YOUR FACE and beautifully lit and fantastically conceived. VERY powerful image that has a serious message that I hope at least one person on the planet perceives. 10 from me.

Seriously gripping and lots of thought is apparent. The premix with blood of the drug in the hypodermic is a powerful touch.

Excellent work by the model. Not sure I would have voted on this though. Nicely done though and well met for the ribbon.

this is a great shot, a wonderful model, lighting, etc.. perfection.. except that if this is meant to be skag aka heroin, that is WAY too much in that needle.. and too dark.. thats a Kill Shot there ;) 9

Powerful photo. Excellent work from your model, too. The single white sleeve really adds visual interest. I detect a bit of "banding" around the backlit head -- could be my monitor or maybe a result of resizing. Anyhow, a high vote from me.

Creepy and intriguing.

Looks like a Toyan image, but I could be wrong. Good idea, very well executed!

I love this picture, the anger, the pain, the addiction. Its beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2007 05:14:16 PM
I think i would like to see this in black & white (possibly with some grain) to bring out a bit more grit on a dark subject area.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2007 10:04:54 AM
This is great, you have more than just a chain. Lots of emotion with your picture. Love the lighting of the whole pic.

The style reminds a lot of the Scorpions "Blackout" album cover from the eighties. Very good photograph!

this should finish top 5...it's troubling, but perfect for the challenge...the lighting and bg colour are perfect...9

Captured the emotion very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2007 06:27:17 AM
very good lighting, props, pose and expression. good color. just wonder why there's something brown in the injection tube - maybe green would have been better

Nice tones - a bit cliché-ish (not that I came up with anything creative - lol) but at least it is well executed -- 8 --

britney spears?? lol, great set up and pose!

Crazzzzy!

04/09/2007 03:07:18 PM
we get the idea but not persuasive - seems exaggerated too much
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2007 12:22:21 PM
greatly done... good set up...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2007 10:32:34 AM
Great idea, but in this case the actual chains don't add much. The sering and expression would have been more powerfull
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2007 07:27:27 AM
& yet it would be hard to inject her self like that. hmm I like te idea & expression but it doesnt jump at me. Perhaps its the flatish lighting or the central comp. Hope it goes well for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2007 04:31:29 AM
one of the stronger shots in the challenge. nice lighting. I expect this will do well, maybe top 3?
