This image is about a girl who has lost her voice in life. No one listens to her or even cares what she has to say. Her eyes are out of focus to show that she feels like no one sees her and her world looks dark. The fragility of the flower she is holding portrays her fragile state but also the way she is holding it is like she is holding a microphone through which she wants to make her voice heard.

Your subject and portrayal, the dark tones, black and white conversion, all working together to create soul and mood. I like it.
