My Immortal by BlackJack0919 My Immortal by BlackJack0919
I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

Evanescence :heart:

----------------------

Standing between the line of Life and Death =P

This was taken on the roof of the building my friend was staying . At first the security guard didn't let me go out of the balcony . And Ofcourse I have to pull some strings =P I actually used lots of invisible fishing strings to hang me and keep me safe while standing on the edge like that =P

Taken by my friend , he was standing in the opposite building :XD:

It was really foggy that day and the sky was really cloudy . But I really like the dark feeling of the picture :D

Stock used : :iconeternalfallacy-stock: :hug:

Inspired by : IneedchemicalX incredible work :love: : [link]

Increase contrast and yellow content using curves and color balancing . Some brown layer added for vintage feel . :)

Thank you for viewing :hug:

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-02-02
My Immortal by *BlackJack0919 is a powerful photograph. The dizziness that this makes you feel is intoxicating and it gets the strong conceptual message across wonderfully. -Suggested anonymously ( Featured by Katerina423 )
:iconheart-defectant-art:
this is truly a powerful image! the way the photo is saturated in dark, and the lyrics, contributed in the artists comments box, make it even more an emotional scene. I was blown away by the originality and where it was taken, i give credit to the artist attempting such a thing, since it could easily turn dangerous. I can truly see a visible truth between the way death might want to be caused, and the way the head is bowed sends even more of a message that death is a liked alternative to life, this scared me, nice job

Vision & Originality: This is an outstanding work. This work is full of emotions and full of story. By just looking at the man, you can see the terror and sadness he feels. It's truly a very nice work well done.

Impact: Everybody has felt sever sadness that makes you just wanna give up. I too has felt this sadness. This feeling that totally sucks. You made a wonderful work that made you people relate and think. Good work! :clap:

Technique: The color and tone are wonderful. It helped create that surreal feeling. The size as well is very nice. And you had an awesome background. I would have wanted if you placed the copyright/trademark either at the upper or lower most and probably toned down its opacity, but it still worked in here.

Overall, this is just an awesome piece. Congratulations! :clap:

No, he edventually got forced to the ground by the police, so that the bodyparts didn't fly everywhere when he hit the ground XD

using fishing line would probably kill you any way if you fell, only it would cut you to pieces before you hit the ground ;)
Great picture though :)
