If you could leave a light on by Emily-White If you could leave a light on by Emily-White
i'm afraid that
once i leave, i won't be remembered,
that i will become forgotten. so i'm only asking for you to leave a light on to have a reminder
that i'm coming back

This is an interesting picture, but i'm a bit critical about the concept.
Technically, there's nothing i would criticise, you did a very good job!
The composition is fine and the colours are good - but i think, this picture lacks of impact. There are a few cute details - the house on the shoulder, the strand of hair, the painted nails - but nothing that really stands out.

The picture corresponds hardly to the title and the concept. You can see some light through the window of the house, but not more than this, and the pose does not really help to bring the concept out. It conveys a feeling of "i don't want to leave home", but tells not much about the "don't forget me" thoughts.
I've looked through your gallery and i think you take quite good conceptual photos, but this one could be better.
What do you think?

Don't be affraid
You won't be remembered
You're name will vanished in the limbo of souvenirs
But the good you've done may stand forever
somewhere in the conscience of someone

How pretty. She has a home on her shoulder, but is she the one leaving?
