      Irrational? That sounds very human like!
      Interesting series, the pictures and the story itself and the issues you raise.

      I certainly think this one projects the fear more than the previous shot. The feeling I got from the previous one was more of coming out into the sunlight. Here it is a feeling of withdrawing into an unsavoury place out of desparation to avoid something even more sinister.

      A couple of suggestions if i may. Your flip-flops and modern wardrobe place this shot in the 21st century. Wearing more ambiguous clothing may introduce a timeless quality, leaving us to wonder when this all happened. Also, how about a vignette to darken the corners and draw the viewer in? -Just a thought.

      Look forward to seeing some more great shots.

      Fear is probable a rest of instinct behaviour, which has mother nature given to us, to solve diffiucult situations without wasting time with thinking. So it was very helpful, that you actually believed, that there was something behind you. The expression in your face is real and it works to me. But i also like Andy's thoughts and suggestions.
      Definetely an interesting series, Zoe. I am looking forward to the next two shots.

      Yes this definitely conveys fear Zoe..... the tones I think add a lot to this aswell. Have a good week :o)

      yep, there's a bit of real tension in the way you're holding yourself here / your body language, conveys the feeling perfectly

      Certainly captures a sense of uneasiness.
