great stuff Clive! Is it the statue comes to life, or she is being slowly petrified? congrats on the 4th!

Clive...congrats on the 4th place! Looking at this image is frightening (like some scary stone disease of decaying death and innocence), but I'm glued to it nonetheless in horrified fascination! Well done!

Never seen anything like this here or elsewhere (lucky me). Anyways, I somehow like how half vivid this is.

Morbid. Creepy. Different. Great job!
My only critique is the cropping. I don't like the subject being in the center. But that's just me.

Stunning.

The blob in the lower left corner is utterly distracting. This otherwise is a masterpiece.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2011 01:14:56 PM
I keep looking at this picture and I appreciate the great work and idea.
But there is something that repels me so much. And it has to do with the expression of the statue, with the treatment of its left eye and nose. When I cover the right side of the image it's so much better.
It's a very personal opinion or idiosyncrasy of mine.
Remains though a great image.

I remember a time, filled with laughter and love. How could I know what would come from above? The air filled with fire and I was left to die amoung the dire. I yearn for those bygone days. My life now just a shadow in the haze. To become alive once more, would mean to venture out from beyond this door. I am trapped here with my sin, for God I do not know where to begin. 10
