Very chilling and inspiring manip. I like the coloring you used, the dull and gloomy atmosphere, and the broken glass in the foreground. The figures in the background are sufficiently eery, although the more close up one near the middle ground seems a bit awkward in size compared to the ones in the back. The composition for the little girl is really great, but the blurring on her face seems out of place. It seems to me that it would look better either completely blurred out or not blurred at all, as right now it looks like only one of her eyes has been blurred out. These are only suggestions, however; I think this is a great piece. :)
What do you think?

Cute, adorable, sad, I like that she isn't in the middle of the picture I really think that gives the effect you wanted.

Un de tes meilleurs au niveau conceptuel...

ces ombres et le regard caché donne un tout le sens de cette image comme un silence mortel...

bravo

this is something special.
i love the dynamics created by the use of intricate
details and the vague blurriness both in the background
and along the little girl's eyes.
the blending of textures, especially the broken glass
is well done also.
also love the contrast between the lips and the
rest of the piece.
the sentiments, the words, complete it.
very well done.

Very disturbing -- and very well done. For me, it's the blood-red lipstick on the child's mouth and the smear from her forehead down through her right eye that I find most disconcerting. Don't know why. (As Van Morrison says, "It just is".) The background is simply fantastic. Great piece!

If it were a book cover I would read it, a poster for a movie, I'd go and see it.Great job.

A very eerie feeling, great lighting effect, texture and colour. I especially like the blur around the eyes. As the eyes are the windows to the soul, it's kind of symbolic of the things we'd rather not see or left unseen.

And although this could be some horror story promotion, it could also represent child abuse.

It could be a dedication for all the people we lost, all these ghosts surrounding us, bringing us into despair...

This manipulation touches me so deep inside my heart, into my own despair towards the deaths of those I loved so!!
