How beautiful, but how sad. The tourists, if you will, just gazing at the mermaids: they sicken me.

I love art that causes some kind of reaction in me. :)

I can't describe how much this moved me...it's weighing very heavily on my mind at the moment.

*resists urge to relate this to current animal abuse and imprisonment*

Wonderful work.

I love this image. You did a great job with it. The colors are very well matched and it has a very claustrofobic mood that completely fits the picture. Just awesome.

Very cool concept! I think this could really be something if you did something about the quality (looks like it has been shot with a crappy camera right now) and added a larger picture. Good work, keep it up
