Suggester Says:"The soft blur & chosen angle add a sinister mood that makes me wonder, "What happened?""

This is interesting!
I think for me you made the right decision!
Comparing the pictures, the Walking the Rails series focuses more on the model. This piece is more about the idea and what people interprete into it.

This is a wonderful shot! I love the focus on her hand with the dirt and the softness surrounding it. Great lighting, great detail, great placement and dof. That little bit of color on her nails adds so much to this. Fantastic job!:D

Beautiful and tragic at the same time.
Here in the morning mist, lies the body of a young female.
Once budding with life..
Now lifeless as a flower, that has been prematurely uprooted....

My pleasure.
Can you tell me how you relate to it?
Sometimes it is so great to see how many countries this site reaches!
I have to admit people from Iran are rare. :)

Big Cheers from Germany

I can't explain it well, but I feel like she could be me. It's probably not what you had in mind, but the dirt in her hand for me symbolizes a great effort, one that has not been in vain, if not a complete success. At the same time, she's lying on the ground, like she's drained. And finally, the blurry atmosphere, almost misty, makes everything vague. So all of that, is kind of my story. Oh and her nakedness, gives her a purity of character which I love.

It IS great to feel that despite all the oppression here, we can still communicate with artists all around the world! :) (of course I'm using a proxifier, dA is fltered in Iran!)

That is exactly what I had in mind. Censorship. It is very encouraging to see that people are finding a way around this madness.
This is what I love about dA you find people like yourself from everywhere around the world. Not only certain spots.

Keep it up!

I can't see why there's a mature content since nothing is visible, I think you should take the content warning down so your piece gets more attention!
I love the interesting focus object and the calm color palette. Also the idea of dying with some grass and soil in the hand is great, because it looks like a metaphor of being buried in soil under the grass, too.
Congrats on DD!

It's about a lady who has a dream about a tree, so her husband uproots it and she falls through, landing on a turtle with only a lump of dirt.
