Excellent, Usman! I would also say a winner here. Perfect how the wires cross in front of the mouth, accentuating loss of freedom.

WOW!!! This gives me goosebumps, it's so good. Absolutely perfect composition--as Eivor said, the framing of his face accentuates his captivity. And the title is the icing on the cake. Fantastic work, Usman--definitely a winner, and a fave for me!

My heart breaks for the imprisoned. It's humans that should be behind bars for destroying habitat, not wildlife.

The image you captured is outstanding with perfect composition, lighting and tonality, in addition to being very moving. It makes me want to take action to free the animal. And, this is what images should do, empower people.

This emotional image sure carries IMPACT for us all!!!

I stared at the fencing crossing over his mouth showing that he has no power even of speech for his own rights or freedom.

Okay...here's the plan...Let's get some wire cutters...and we'll meet after dark!...

WONDERFUL JOB and SO DESERVING, our friend Usman!

Usman,

Perhaps if everyone donated money to get the release of this animal, or to have him/her moved to a location where more freedom was allowed, we would be putting our voices to a good cause.

It breaks my heart that human selfishness has captured, imprisoned or murdered wildlife.

I just don't know what to say, it's such a heartbreaking image, though beautiful at the same time. I agree BP members could sponsor this poor thing. Very well taken=^..^=

Well Usman, you've got a winner here. I'm not a frequent discussion participant, but I don't recall seeing this many comments on a photo!

And no wonder, because its a great photo. Technically well constructed, and also tells a story - both the image and the title. Congratulations, very well done!

Usman- I think photo of the year would be a better award for this amazing work with such a power message that tares at the heart. The photography is phenominal and beautiful. You got the sad face cetered so perfectly in the fence. The colors and features are gorgeous. The expression gut wrenching. a masterpeace of skilled photography and strong emotions.
Have a great day my friend.
