This photo is so simple, but has quite an impact. The colorful squares of the rubix cube look like choices or paths, places this puzzle piece could fit. Many people would think it's obvious that a puzzle piece like this wouldn't go into a blue or pink square, but it asks the question, can it? Can the piece fit where ever it truely wants to? Can we be what ever we set our hearts to? As I've told every person I have critiqued, a good photograph asks a question. In this photos case it asks many questions. Marvelous work, an incredible shot with a very uplifting and inspiring vibe.

PS I love your handwriting.

I love this. I really really. really. Do.
The vision is perfect, no blur. But the impact. Everyone knows what it's like to have something unexpected to fly at you and hit you smack bag in the nose. Like a ball, never know where it's gunna go until it stops. The puzzle piece was a great touch! It fit's in REALLY well and ...I think that's a blurred rubix cube in the background. That's cute. Gives the background and middle ground of the photo life. Very cute photo indeed. I really like this sort of art. Hope to see more of it because I most appreiate it.

And I'm the piece that jumped out of the box, then you find me a year later after getting rid of said uncompleted puzzle.

Life is a mystery, we make it as we view it from our state of contentiousness we choose to grasp it and let it guide us in its path. It is our set destiny and we live it once or who knows how long, but we should enjoy every second as if it were merrily our last this is life's puzzle.

...you think "Oh, well I'm smart enough, i bet i don't have to look at the box for how it's done." Time passes, you don't understand where you went wrong because it looks like nothing that makes sense, just a weird blob. Then you get mad and start jamming pieces together until it looks even more unrecognizable. Finally you give up, flip over the box and realize"Oh, it was a banana business man waiting at the bus stop! I would have figured it out eventually." Even though you're not fooling anybody.

Life's a puzzle where all of humanity and gods creatures live together. Where everyone must find where their piece of life fit's in the world's puzzle.

Beautiful picture ^^

I haven't found where my piece of life fits yet but thats what makes a puzzle fun. The excitement of finishing it and the ehjoyment of the journey to it <3

Lol I'm just a random person slipping out of reality again. ^^; Well done on this amazing picture :D

Life is a frustrating puzzle as you sometimes wonder how people can be so cruel to each other. Life is short and I can't fathom how anyone can devote their life to hatred of others for whatever reason.

Life's a puzzle...you can NEVER find the right piece when you need it most.

Life's a puzzle...you see the piece 10 FREAKIN' TIMES,but when you need it,it is gone like an X-file phenomenm.

Life 's a puzzle...We're all GAWD-DAMN FUSTRATING.

Life's a puzzle...we all have the WEIRDEST SHAPES.XD

If you plan on having your hand on every photo, for god's sake take care of your nails
they're horrible, stop biting them and clean up your cuticles, i can't even look at your gallery without cringing

you're being a little melodramatic don't you think? I have 160 deviations , you can only see my nails in 3 of the photos. It's a bad addiction I've had for years. I have bad anxiety problems also. I'm trying to stop my bad habit though :)
