Sad Teddy Bear by WorldII Sad Teddy Bear by WorldII
Wandered around a graveyard near Porth, South Wales yesterday. Came across a gravestone with an old wet teddy bear just sat there. So very sad. Made me cry. Just wanted to capture the sadness of someone's death.

First off, poor teddy. My lord, I bet that bear has seen lots of things that would make him that depressed.
I think the from a artists standpoint all the textures in the picture are WONDERFUL! In the background you can the unfocused rough of the trees, in the foreground you have your crunchy dead leaves, nice weathered stone, the silk from the tie on the bear, and the matted down fur. From just looking at the picture it looks complimentary to the eye.
The originality was very nice, but the thing that makes it higher is I wish I had evidence it was a graveyard. (Not I don't believe you) But just for the symbolism sake.
That applies to the Impact to but nevertheless I still think it deserves a 5/5 there. The technique wasn't anything special,( I hope that wasn't an insult.) but you can only go so far technique wise with photography.
To sum it up brilliant picture, and thanks for it! :)

I agree with almost everything Farathil has said except that, "you can only go so far with technique in photograghy". Quite frankly technique is everything in photography, anyone can take a snapshot, but if you don't have good technique your never going to create art except by accident.
This image literally grabbed my attention. The forlorn look of the teddy instantly envisions the sadness of a long lost playmate, or was discarded by a child who had outgrown their toys. Then I read your description and felt a true wave of sadness in learning this was a cemetery.

This is an extreemly well composed image, and conforms well to the rule of thirds, with the teddy leaning off center. In addition the lightness in the background gives a wonderful contrast break to the heavyness of the dark stone. While its too bad that its not clearer that this is a cemetery its understandable given the limitation s of the view. It still remains an extreemly powerful image.
This is a skillfully done photo, a masterful job
