I hope someone likes this image. Not literal and I'm sure I'll get many DNMC- But I'm sure some will take the time to ask some questions and judge it in a non-literal way. Thanks in advance for any comments. btw-its is intended to be a soft image- the details are not necessary- I wanted to envoke a feeling. Did I do it?
The title is a little to direct for me-but I'm going to keep it. I really want to call it "STAY"

post challenge: hummmmm! I really don't get it-how most did not get it.
The plane represents the distance the figure feels from her spouse. The other hand clearly shows the ring finger-thus giving the viewer a pretty good clue.
My only mistake in this image was the wording. Opps on my part. It is a beautiful image and I stand behind it 100% Thanks for looking!
And much Thanks to the two Favs-made my week

I clearly remember seeing this, but I don't know how I managed to miss commenting before now. I did get it, and thought it was a beautiful conceptual piece. Missed voting on the challenge, so sorry to say your 10 row would have been up by 1 voter if I had not done so. :)

I really thought this was a remarkable shot - the feeling and emotion created by the story through the composition, objects, expressions and processing is outstanding - I gave it a 7 but realize that I should have voted higher

Dear bleu, I skipped this challenge or else I would have been another 10 for you. The connection to the challenge is clear, but you go well beyond that, creating an image of mystery and myth.

I really like this picture, the toning and motion blur make a magical image that's really pleasing to look at. I'm not sure I get the message behind the shot though? I look forward to taking a look at this after voting is finished

this one is an Honorable Mention for me - really like the motion in the coat as it's very unique/interesting and adds to the etherial feel, dualtones are wonderful, mix of shiney and smooth is just right, composition is sooo close (a tad more room to the left of the plane would feel better for me). I think the plane is the link to the theme and the gesturing open hand gives the emotional content making this a great shot.

Fantastic photo. It doesn't really convey the notion of distance to me ... but it's arguably the best photo in the challenge.
