I like that ver much. I'm not always fond of a lot of manipulation, but this is really well done. Is that skyline something important to her? Local?

I did this shoot of Juene a while back. And decided to a manipulation. I was going to use another image of her but this one set a better composition.

Ideally there is a compromise on how much to add...but generally less is more. The idea behind this post was that....alot of people who suffer from Anxiety or post anxiety, feel as if the world is just too heavy for them to manage. And this really has been how I've been feeling with in the last couple months. Work can get tough in this industry. Its a little disheartening.

But ye, this image is base on what I deal with. She would merely be subject matter.

I'm not sure if you have been to South Africa. But this is on top of a building here. The Royal Hotel. Its actually a little dangerous as there is no real banisters around the edges.

But makes for great infinity shots

I like it. It shows what you want to express, the world is pressing down.
Sorry to hear that this is a rough patch. I hope you are able to work through it.

I have a nit pick about the title.

An "Anchor" is a good thing, it is something that keeps you in place at your own desire, and secures you. It is yours to use or not. It is not eg: a leg iron that is put on you by outside forces. It is intentionally deployed for safe keeping.

So from your tile, I was not expecting the subject matter and emotion you were trying to capture.

".... weigh you down" would be more akin to the feeling you were intending to portray.

Or on the flipside, if indeed you are being anchored vs. weighed down, maybe you can see the upside of of that?

Thanks Cyber for pointing that out. Weighing down would be a better description to use in this instance.

Sometimes the words that I think of, sound better in the head before actually thinking if they making sense of the situation I'm portraying them.

Could you possibly change that for me.
