When we leave ourselves by Iskander1989 When we leave ourselves by Iskander1989
I think it is a very easy concept to express with an image. We live in a world full os hypocrisy and false indoles, and i mean ourselves too, when we (sometimes) need to let our own rules in life to get or reach anything. This is very sad.

I did some corrections in the Lighting, shadows, changed the main source of the mask and changed the configs of the adjustment layers too, hope you enjoy!

THE SCENERY GAVE ME A SAD IMPACT OF THE REALITY OF LIFE NOWADAYS. LEAVING DIFFERENT MASKS AT A TIME IN DIFFERENT PLACES AND SITUATIONS. IT SEEMS LIKE THE GIRL WILL GOING TO MOVE FORWARD FOR ANOTHER PLOT OF LIFE.

ANOTHER NOTEWORTHY FACT HERE IS THE MODEL. IN MY OWN OPINION, MOST WOMEN WEAR MASK THAN MEN DO JUST TO HIDE THEIR REAL PERSONALITY (WHICH IS CERTAINLY NOT NEEDED) JUST TO BE ACCEPTED BY THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM, IN GENERAL. THE LONG, EMPTY ROAD AND THE LIFELESS SKY MADE IT MORE IMPRESSIVE!

WHAT A GREAT WORK OF ART. TRULY DESERVE PEOPLE'S ADMIRATION.

I personally do like the emotion this piece has made me feel. How most of the people try to wear a facade to be in conformity with certain group of cliques without realizing that in the end, it's torture..it's depriving yourself the right to be loved, to be understood and to be valued for who and what you are. On a positive note, leaving the mask behind, walking away from it is a significant picture of breaking free from your fears, the fears brought about by the complexities of life itself.

This piece is amazing. It just won't capture your eyes, but your emotions; will surely make you reflect and ask "Am I being me?" <3

Not good @ critiques, but it's a hauntingly beautiful image and some may have to look at it a few times to realize it's not a real photo.

Yeah, not the best choice of words. I don't really do the deviantART critiques: 100 words and all. I think one can convey how they feel in less than 100 words.
