To explain the title, I picture this boy withdrawn in the dark room from some unknown sad event. That's just the situation I imagine from the scene.

I just tried to focus on believability and atmosphere. The brick wall photo is mine.Thanks for the other source photos from homero nuñez chapa (toy car), Lydiat (bookstore), Pamporoff (old Books), and Vincent Crivello (boy) (5 years and 1809 days ago)

Why what? It's a nicely done image, but I don't get the relevance of the title. The shadows of the boy & toy should rotate about 5 degrees counterclockwise.

I would adjust the shadows on the kid and car. Only noticable in high res but they kind of seem like the are floating. The books are a better match as far as correct shadow. I was confused by the title too. Perhaps you could include that in your description.

EDIT: It appears like you made the shadow adjustment. I didn't mention before but you did go a good job on the perception and felt I must give you props.

So far my favorite in this contest. The use of a vanishing point is outstanding. Few things are more satisfying than finding a nice quiet place to read, play with a car, or just be alone. I really like the feel of this peice.

Thanks for the contructive comments. Yes I did adjust the shadows per CMYK46 about 2.5 degrees & tried to clarify the title. I also adjusted the shadow under the car(thanks jawshoewhaw) and trimmed the edges of the shadow because it had a bit of a curve to it. RickLaMesa, The source window was off center too. I just put the door where the window was, lol.
