This is my entry for the liquid mouth contest! For more infos see here: [link]

Liquid mout is actually a group - a very good group, because it is more about talking with eachother than just submitting pics.

"The name of this group is LiquidMOUTH. Mouth of course symbolizing your voice. That's what this group is all about your voice. I want to hear what you have to say. The Liquid of course symbolizes water. So when you put them together LiquidMOUTH. When you speak, another person speaks in reply. Then an outsider adds to that conversation. Once we all start speaking as one, our voice flows together like a river of words colliding with an ocean. And right now this ocean that we’re pouring into is the world itself, the culture of art, triumphs of brilliant minds and the failures of our own struggles. This is our subject, the conversation. This is LiquidMOUTH."
=McFlyky I tried to picture that. Of course I am open for every other interpretation!

An interesting concept behind an interesting picture. the picture isn't all complicated. In fact, it has quite a simple, centered composition. But they say less is more. and you pulled it off quite nice.

There is something to the picture that feels off, but in a good way. I think it has to do with the both the half opened mouth and the fact that nothing is holding the jar. It gives the picture a surreal feel. The background is also emphasizing this. The focus seems to be on the girl alone, like what she's saying is important, while the way her mouth droops suggests otherwise. it makes you curious. You want to know what those unspoken words are. It's really a piece that makes you wonder. I'm also curious to know if the paper boat has some sort of meaning to it.

There is only one thing about the picture that, in my opinion, might be a little distracting: The buttons on the bottom of the picture. I noticed that that's were my eyes seem to linger after it followed the water down into the jar. Without them (blocking them out with a piece of paper), funnily enough, my focus shifts between the mouth and jar constantly, following the water. She must be talking a lot... :D
