Actually had a shot from the other day that I really liked except there was far too much noise for my taste. It was shot to have some noise because I originally thought I would do the final shot in B/W, but i the end the B/W was terrible and despite liking the look of the lighting head etc it was awful in color. Attempted to do over - but just couldn't get the head right. Those are the times when you need more friends - or a mirror that can moved around.

Personally, I think it's wonderful, despite the fact that you're not completely satisfied with it. It brings over the title perfectly and I love the sad look on the (your) clowns face. Great work. Be happy, here's a ((Hug ;-)))

This is a highly emotive tribute to a great Master still missed. There is grief and sadness in Loss but there is also Learning & a universal unspoken Connection. Superb photograph & hands down my favourite in this challenge. The face is silent but the message is still very clear - honour what has been lost & go on.

Well chosen "model" and perfect mournful expression and tear drops. Shadow under nose annoying. Still an 8.
