Fragile by neeta Fragile by neeta
It was very hard for me to submit this... But this is exactly what I feel like. Naked and alone.
It's not my intention to expose myself, I just want to express myself.. Since I can't do it with words. I hope you understand..

Thank you Painkiller

There is something about this picture which I loved ever since I saw it.
It was meant to express pain, distress, loneliness and lack of inner peace and the asymmetric composition plays a great part in that. The faded sepia tones look so sad and the contrast between the left, darker part and the white right one works very well in order to keep the watcher looking in anguish and hopelessness.
The quality might not be the best ever but still this is a wonderful picture which portrays such intense an emotion.

This work of art has all the strenght of visual impact coupled with the uniqueness of evanescent memories.
What do you think?

When we are totally nude we are defenseless and all alone. We began to full a shame of the imperfections our body and soul brings out. Once we acknowledge to ourselves and once we let go we feel different for we are truly free. I feel this way every time I have surgery. This is an excellent photograph showing emotion how one may feel any day.

Nakedness represents vulnerability.

I think we all feel like this sometimes. and right now it is my turn. I feel I am looking at myself right now (except that you are much more beautiful, and female).

You did an excellent job conveying feelings of aloneness and nakedness, this feeling of being exposed. It struck a nerve with me, especially since I'm going through an emotional upheaval.

Oft times it is difficult to put into pictorial form or into written word emotions felt. Most images created are the 'settle-for' because they did not truly express what the creative artist wanted.

This probably is about as close as you can get to the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that Eve, and Adam, were experiencing after learning more than what they could handle, that overwhelming feeling of helplessness, aloneness, (true) nakedness.

Expressing those things that choke you up when you try to speak them is what the visual arts is all about. Really beautiful portrait. Great job. :-)

And neeta,
I feel the same way.
Many of us do.
Only us can understand the true meaning of this brilliant piece of artwork.

In attempting to express those feelings you've expressed alot more. You seem like a beautiful person, and if you still feel 'naked and alone' take comfort in the fact that, (I'm SURE) you are loved.
I understand the feeling.

ps. fantastic shot =D
lol :P

I love the way this was taken. You resemble a doll in a box, yet all is empty but you.

I hope I don't offend.... It's very well done.

its good to see that theres normal people out there i give it a ++5/5

I think I understand. There was a moment I felt bad, sad and lonely. Lucky I had my first album of Yes called "Fragile" and it supported me. Even now this music helps me through bad moments and I took a tattoo. The cover of the Fragile-album.
I can see (and think I can understand) naked and alone in this picture and understand how fragile it feels.

For me it's a great shot.

Looks like you just saw someone die.
Don't worry, life always tends to get better when you least expect it.
