The bugs in the system seemed to have moved on - let's hope it stays that way. Thanks, Phil, for returning. This image haunts even me.
Glad to see it finally here, Jenene. What began for me as an illegible image has now become one of the most expressive you have ever made, a brilliant blend of abstraction, incongruity and human values. This image keeps getting stronger for me. I see more in it every time I look at it. It is really all about entrapment, isn't it?
The cropped version is not showing up here either. You can try uploading it again by using the "replace" image feature on the galleries edit page. But I know what it looks like, and it is an entirely different image that what I saw originally. Far more expressive and threating than the obscure version I first saw on my screen.
My, you're looking dark tonight, Jenene. The structure of your comments seem familiar...

What a difference the remake made -- I can see the face, eyes, and fence, and leaves as well. It is image that speaks of fear and entrapment. I love the worm tat slithers across the forehead, too -- it threatens decay. I don't like the black triangle where the mouth should be, however -- it looks like a hole in the face. If you crop the image across the cheek on the left hand side of the frame, the viewer's attention goes to the eyes instead of that black triangle were the mouth. With the crop, it will be a superbly expressive image.
As for monitors, you are right. I have had the same problem with Ana's dark images. They just don't come up on my screens. And I have two 23 inch Mac cinema display flat LCD monitors, too -- so I don't know exactly why your eyes did not show up the first time I saw the picture. It's always something to consider, however.

I like how the eyes leap out after a few seconds. It is subtle. Rising. Great image Jenene. K
Well thought and conceived. Thanks, Jenene.
An interesting reflection & layering. The colors in low light are always interesting. Yes, Spring will feed itself of the remains of the cold season!
