Your Heart Is An Empty Room by blackjack157 Your Heart Is An Empty Room by blackjack157
Burn it down till the embers smoke on the ground
And start new when your heart is an empty room
With walls of the deepest blue

This is the result of one of my most challenging shoots ever with =The-Meeg. This is a snapshot of the Doctor living with the grief of just losing Rose Tyler.

Capturing the emotion of this was no simple task, like most things in my career I tried too hard at first and this made it more difficult to deliver what I was trying and everyone was aware of it. The combination of weariness from tension of breath and trying new ways to convey grief delivered this shot.

Despite my opinion on Rose later on, this is really a moment I treasure. Yes, the Doctor is a Time Lord and he shouldn't love Rose like he did... but he met her right after the war, coming from his darkest moments. He depended on her to be there with him to stop him and to guide him out of the abyss that plagued his mind.

And suddenly... she was gone. Not a lot of things in life can compare to grief like that in my eyes... I hope I did an alright job in showing you it. :)

I had a hard time deciding if it was actually a fan cosplaying, or really David Tennant when I saw the thumbnail. Some incredible costume and hair detail. Kudos.

The shadow overtaking most of the room brings to focus our Doctor, who looks to be deep in thought. This is a very thought provoking piece. After the loss of Rose Tyler, I know I was a crying mess.

The photo's overall quality is brilliant, crisp and clean, with nice attention to focus and colour.

This is impressive work. Again, kudos to the cosplayer for detail, and to the photographer for the quality photo.
