I wanted to try a hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil shot. However under basic editing i could not see how to could cover all three. Not sure how I persuaded my wife to pose for this one but I am pleased with the results. Even though I am supposed to make her look good in photos!

Pretty basic editing, levels, saturation, crop, resize etc. Would have loved it to be advanced to get more mood into the picture. This will ever bomb or fly. Either way I hope it evokes a reaction.

I'm not surprised to see how your scores were distributed. I've often said that I want to take more photographs that get a lot of 10's, and a lot of 1's, because it means that I've really affected the viewers. That's what you've done here.

A disturbing photo. really does not appeal to me. It is reasonably well executed, the makeup works well and the lighting is good, but not for me.......

This gets a high score for its powerful impact, even though I recoil each time I view it.

This shot is really amazing and anguishing! I'm sorry but i just don't think it meets the challenge so much. I look at the photo and i don't see comunication or language. I see it representing anguishing and suffer.

Everyone should take a look at the definition of language before voting...I think i was too tough at my vote and comment, i really like this shot, and that's why i felt i couldn't vote on it without seing the concept of language again. By the concept here in my contry, one of the definitions of language is everything that comunicates or represents a feeling. Hope you do well, i'm changing my vote.

This is a really compelling photograph.. Emotive, gritty and dirty; not standard DPC fare. I'm guessing that you'll get a lot of 1's because many voters don't like 'ugly' photos. I hope my 8 offsets those a little.

The tongue is more important to speech than the lips.
