pardon my newbie comments, but i really dont see what your pictures are trying to say. what has the straw hat got to do with being lynched? i feel that its lacking in composition, and making it B/W may not do it any good.

Essentially lynching was a form of getting rid of society's unwanted junk(convicts, murderers, and in the pre Abe Lincoln period, blacks), so to speak. The person to be gotten rid of was hung from a tree, albeit a bigger one.
I chose lynching as the title as the straw hat was "lynched"(ie. hung from a tree and gotten rid of)
Composition wise, I didn't want to show the whole hat, focusing more on the string(rope) and the point of contact between the rope and the "neck".

Here's a shot of the whole hat. Dead boring

hmm.. is the b/w post processed or taken in b/w ?
i find that there isnt enough contrast b/w the subjects.. everythin is nearly on the plain scale..

meaning-wise.. i get wht u tryin to bring across after u had explained.. nice analogy
anyway.. its juz my noob comments~

erm post-processed. The first pic is the same but in colour. Same thoughts here about the BnW, prob will just scrap it. Thanks though for the comments
