Chained with my Dreams by LenaDavid Chained with my Dreams by LenaDavid
We all dream to achieve something one day no matter what, and if we stop dreaming we stop living. So here I’m chained with my dreams by these heavy chains which are blocking me of achieving what I want; however, I still insist to fight for my dreams to make them come true ..

For Chained with my Dreams by ~NewLieutenant the suggester writes, "I love this concept and it was executed beautifully. The chains holding the ankle tell me that there are many things that people must fight through just to reach what they most desire." ( Suggested by KeraRaven and Featured by inprotest )
:iconmosaol:
This piece is one of the most thought provoking i've seen on dA for quite a while. It raises far more issues in your head than you can possible get across in a comment and that's one of the reasons it's such a evocative and beautiful piece of art.

The concept is not only thought provoking but is clearly an emotional expression from the artist. It's also an original expression of an all too familar feeling for a lot of people in the world today.

The detail is excellent and the focus is used brilliantly to accent the foreground of the photograph. Choosing to shoot this in black and white was also an excellent choice as it adds to the image and the emotion behind it. I also like how some of the chains seem darker and rusted compared to the rest.

This is the part of the critque where I would generally give my thoughts for improvement however in this case, I have none to give.
What do you think?
