An excellent photo!!! The eyes are amazing, the colors, contrast, and "bleached out" feel speak volumes! Sadly, the "lack" of connection to the "living" is all too familiar for me right now, but it causes me to appreciate the beauty of the picture all the more!!!
You know, I didn't like this shot at first. Everything about you and your eyes especially just boldly states, "I'm here, I'm alive, I'm WINTER."
And this shot is just so washed out, faded.
But then I thought, hm...it really fits with the collar. Life and breath being tightly strangled out, vision fading, losing color; it chills the fuck out of me, but it fits. Excellent picture, but damn, I still maintain it's not you. *shrugs*
