This is great Jano. It likes like some sort of torture room. One with head down, one begging someone outside for help. I would think that the glass of wine would help. -Doug

Yes, good story and OOF setting. Well done Jano.

Good story telling type shot Jano - it makes one wonder about what is going on in this family's life. The subject lends itself very well to being OOF. CJ

In addition to agreeing with the previous comments, I have to say that I'm impressed with how well all the elements work together, esp. your use of dark and light. Well done, Jano.

Ohh... DEEP, Jano! Both are trying to escape in their own way. Lovely interpretation of it. ~Lydia

Thanks ! Although this topic really didn't peak my interest (only that we find that focus in photography is everything and that's what we strive for....) I also found it challenging to come up with a scenario that was interesting yet oof. This particular shot kept creeping into my mind so I put it to the test. I'm honored you like it. jano

Yes this is a very blokey image. The boy in the background adds a real tension to the picy. Excellent picy.

this is excellent, and unlike what I've seen you post before. So many interesting elements and great for the challenge - Penny Street

Jano, this is really good especially since it accomplishes what most of us were trying but fell short - to provide comprehensible content in spite of, or better, enhanced by the oof component. This is great telling two kinds of "escapism". Seems candid or well staged. Works either way. -tv
