Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

Chilling in it's reality. You got the message across well with this bud. Excellent work. Emotion? Dire...sad.

Very nicely done, Clayton. I really like the way you've composed this so that the viewer is like a "lost soul" peering through a fence. Bravo! Wen

A strong image of America: richness and poverty, light and shadows...
Many contrasts, as your country can show.

As always, striking at the heart of an important issue with a strength and power yet executed with clarity, precision and respect. This image is reflects your attention not only to detail but social issues too. Well done.

I agree, very well done. It is a very powerful image. As for the emotions it brings out in me, well it's kind of confusing. Although it's a powerful image I'm not quite sure what message it is you're trying to convey..........although I can say that the first thing i felt when I saw it was anger.

I feel... well... almost lost looking at it, then again I start to feel a twinge of anger. I see a powerful portrait of the loss in a game for power and money. Don't you just love our great USA...

Good Work!

Not sure how I missed this. Terrific work. I think I'm missing something, though, as the "DP" is not meaning anything to me right now.

It makes me feel sad, disappointed, betrayed, resigned, miserable - although it might make me feel anger, too, if I looked at it for longer.

What does freedom mean? What does it take? Contrasting symbols of freedom with the reality of prison, be it the literal imprisonment of wire cages or the prison of poverty, need and desperate want.

A picture of wealth, a land of plenty. A place of beggars and despair.

Illusion vs. reality. Disappointed hopes. Unfulfilled dreams.

Good job! Kinda looks like the kingdom hospital intro as a thumbnail, but when you see the big size, it's pretty breath taking.

Wonderful job.... Thank you for sharing it -- a thousand words would not explain how I feel looking at it.

Powerful imagery, Clayton. The contrast of the towering symbols of industry and government against the unfortunate "forgotten".

It echos, sort of, something I say a lot, wherein we can do so much, build and create so much.. and we STILL can't feed the hungry, or house the homeless.

I'm faving this.

Please, even if you don't visit my gallery, check out my "Faves".I've left them intact since day "1", and would like it if every image there got the attention they deserved.

I had never seen this then, so I see something here that is so emotional, so sensitive. It makes me feel the freedom in the USA is limited, ironic, and questionable, to say the least.The pain of futility, or war, of those lost people who have no home.There is no true freedom, I have had someone dear to me in prison before and it was confining there, but once those ex prisoners get out, they are still in prison. The rules and laws that apply to those evil lawbreakers also apply to those that made a bad choice. So America has far to go with this. Other countries care for 'their own' but not here. What use are the skyscrapers when homes are destroyed in war, when families are divided. Children taken away. The pain this creation of yours shows is ever so real. And then there stands Lady Liberty...and Justice for All? I beg to differ!! Verena
