Very poignant. The toning is also spot-on. Composition and tonality as well.

I agree about the toning, and I like the washed-out exterior. I think the black block to the left is rather larger than it really needs to be, though.

In my opinion, that very block adds the negative space, which contributes to the image in more ways than just visual. The deep, heavy, dark nothingness just underscores the isolation, loneliness, and lack of bright future for the main figure. Me thinks.

Very good, albeit depressing at some extent. If anything I would like even more negative space, although darkening further might change the mood.

A fascinating combination of poignant and a touch of Vermeer.
Bravo!

You certainly have captured the essence of the situation with a lot of emotional and visual impact. Very strong. I can relate to this as my mother is in a Long Term Care Facility.

This was photographed 19 years ago when my mother was dying from bone cancer.

This is not her, but her roommate. This woman sat at the window all day long. She was a German woman and mumbled "Chocolate cake, Yum Yum". Over and over for hours.
I was very aware of the graphic shapes that surrounded her. How they broke the space into light and deep shadow, and with her placed in the middle world.

A haunting image that stirs those feelings of guilt in my past.

+ 100% on both counts. Is anyone absolved of guilt?

Beautifully balanced graphics, too. And Technicolor would have ruined it.

Perfect framing. You should think about movie work. I think Fellini would have loved your eye.

That would be great...Is he still shooting? Oh wait he died on Halloween 1993. How fitting he chose that day to depart. ; )

I'm so glad you didn't title it "Chocolate cake, Yum Yum."
