Eternity by *RobinHedberg
Suggester says: The black/white tones used in this photo are reminiscent of x-ray shots, creating a deeply expressive portrait that is also a meditation on mortality - haunting and unforgettable. (

I really don't know where to start. I stared at the photo for several moments to and I still don't know if I'll be able to express my feelings in words.
This is an extraordinary concept. The skeleton is touching the human's face in a way, that I cannot define if it's threatening or soothing. In any case, it is like they're talking to each other through their eyes. The human is gazing at the "smiling" skull, his mouth slightly open, utterly mesmerized.
You've chosen chosen a clever and mysterious title: Eternity. Eternity.. for someone believing in a God, it is probably, what follows death. But most people, regardless of their belief, are afraid of death. After all you can never be sure what (if anything) happens next. Nonetheless, what remains for sure after death, is dust and bones.
Maybe, that's what the skeleton is trying to say.
About the technical part, I really like the fact that you chose b&w and that the light is coming from the background, it creates a quaint atmosphere.
The only flaw I can see, has to do with the sharpness. I think the photo would look better if it was a tad sharper.
Apart from that, it is an outstanding photograph and I think it deserves a Daily Deviation. [I'd suggest it, if you hadn't gotten one a couple of weeks ago. ]
Well this is my first critique ever, the very first and the firm thought came into my mind when I saw this deviation that both of them are try to feel each other.
Life is so amazed to see death so close, astonished and looks speechless of having this much closure experience of death. The human is feeling pleasure to experience his near end in this way and seems to be enjoying the surprising moment.
While at the other end the skull is feeling the life and seems missing those faded shadows of life he had been to once.
Both of them are seems to be realizing & embracing each other and fully aware of the importance and worth of each other.
The only flaw in my sense that it needed to be cropped more from top. The bared forehead of human is not feeling good here. It would better to be cropped just from middle of the forehead.
omg that's beautiful!!! On a whim I searched for "eternity" (332,541 results...) and only 6 images down - this... this incredible, striking, absorbing, offering. This is one of those moments when all seems suspended harmonic perfection. I have a... ermm... "talent" for overstating things so I'll stop. But wow, this is nice!
The idea could have seemed cliche', but the expression captured on his face, the placement of the skeletal hand, the visual composition itself, all make this a work to which one finds oneself drawn again and again.
is not a joke! carry on reading! or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
ONCE THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL CALLED CLARISSA, SHE WAS 10 YEARS OLD AND SHE LIVED IN A MENTAL HOSPITAL, BEACUSE SHE KILLED HER MUM AND DAD.
SHE GOT SO BAD SHE STARTED TO KILL ALL THE STAFF IN THE HOSPITAL SO THE GOVERMENT DECIDED THAT THE BEST IDEA WAS TO GET RID OF HER SO THEY SET UP A SPECIAL ROOM TO KILL HER, AS HUMANE AS POSSIBLE BUT IT WENT RONG THE MACHINE THEY WERE USEING WENT WRONG.
AND SHE WAS SAT THERE IN AGONY FOR HOURS UNTILL SHE FINALLY DIED.
NOW EVERY WEEK ON THE DAY OF HER DEATH SHE RETURNS TO THE PERSON THAT READS THIS LETTER, ON A MONDAY NIGHT AT 12:00 SHE KREEPS INTO YOUR ROOM AND KILLS YOU, BUT SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY SLOWLY CUTTING DIFFRENT PARTS OF UR BODY THEN WATCHES YOU BLEED TO DEATH IF YOU DONT SEND THIS TO 20 PEOPLE BY MIDNIGHT SHELL BE COMEING TO KILL YOU! SEND IT SO SHE HAS ANOTHER LOAD OF PEOPLE TO GET AND FORGETS ABOUT YOU DONT BELVE ME HEY?
EXAMPLE 1: JENNY DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.
EXAMPLE 2: TOM ONLY SENT IT TO 5 PEOPLE CUZ HE THOUGHT HED BE SAFE AND IT WAS PROBLY JUST A JOKE BUT OH HOW RONG WAS HE! HE DIED THE NEXT NIGHT ON MONDAY AND ILL TELL YA NOW IT WASNT PRETTY(JUST CUZ HE SENT FIVE HE DIDNT COMPLETE THE TASK)
EXAMPLE 3: JOEANNA SENT IT TO 19 PEOPLE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS CLOSE ENOUGH AND WOULD DO BUT SHE WAS WRONG SHE DIED THAT NIGHT ON A MONDAY AND ONCE AGAIN IT WASNT
Oh, shut up. Don't spam the internet with this shit, it's almost as bad as the "find out who unfriended you on facebook" thing which just posts more ads of itself on your profile without your permission. Seriously, you're NOT going to die if you don't repost this, that's a load of crap. I've seen a billion of these and never reposted a single one. I assure you, I am not dead.
Oh, and also, your caps and lack of punctuation just makes this even less believeable. Not to mention, who would have wrote this in the first place, let alone came up with the idea that reposting it 20 times would keep you from dying? Seriously, it makes NO SENSE at all. This is about as real as smile.jpg or Jason the axe-murderer. As in, only in our minds. They do not really exist.
