This is my first critique, so apologies if its a bit sloppy. This is a wonderful peice. It is simple, but carries a message and emotions that we all feel in this situation.

Vision: The message is very clear as is the focus of the picture. Nothing that could be improved here. Very nice.

Originality: This sort of shot and concept has been done before many times, but I can honestly say that this is one of the best ones I've seen yet. The sad face drawn on the paper is cute and fits todays 'internet slang' generation.

Technique: I'm not an expert on camera shots (nor am I a good photographer) but this shot is overused as I said before. However you pulled it off well and made the shot your own. I also like how you didn't go over the top with the bluring of the subject in the background.

Impact: Everything is perfectly balanced. The message is clear and can touch people emotionally.

Overall, the idea has been done before but the technique is polished and the message hits the heart loud and clear. Thank you for making this.

I'm not usually so interested in photography, but this picture really grabbed my attention. It holds so much strong emotion, without really saying anything specific but keeping the message clear. It's really something special. It leaves the viewer a lot of space for interpretation, to wonder exactly who the person in the background is missing and why.

I believe that art should inspire thought, and seeing this person's dropped confession inspires personal emotion as well. The shot itself is well constructed, the blurred background and centering pulling focus to the note. It speaks of hiding your true feelings as well as general regret.

Just a very clever, inspired piece that you should be very proud of. Great job.
