This is so sad... To think, that the Tribe never found the bodies of the three drowned Elves, it's just heartbreaking. I love the simplicity of the picture, the three candles on the little raft in the dark water and the nightsky fit so beautiful together.

This is such an inspired piece, and perfectly executed. It's a great evocation of this tribal tradition, and I love the contrast between the deep colors of the night -- with the black pines sketched in against the starry sky -- and the way the water's ripples are barely visible in the starlight... and that brightly glowing presence of the candles. It brings home what a beautiful variation on tradition this is, for times when the tribe has no body to send off.

The three candles, the mood, the shooting star in the night sky... it just adds so much to the moment!

Wow, so beautiful yet sad. The words added to the picture make the whole thing that much more poignant.

I don't know what style of poetry you used, but it does read nicely and it's a poignant memorial. A common practice among the elves, but rarely depicted with imagery. Nice choice of concept.

So simple and so heartbreaking. No people portrayed and yet so much emotion. It truly hits home.
I think this is the most moving pic you've ever done.

The first time I saw this, I just about choked up -- the three lonely little candlelights against the dark churning water is just heartbreaking. Lovely, lovely, lovely! It makes me appreciate the River Twine memorial ritual for the very first time.

Wow. I really do love how you used three candles here on the raft, to signify the three lost tribesmates whose bodies they apparently never recovered. :,( The fur hide under them is a detail I salute you for, as well. this whole picture is just so haunting, beautiful, solemn, and overall perfect for the poem and the situation that both the poem and this picture tell about.

What a moody pic... and so sad. You created a fitting atmosphere for the poem. Lovethe way you use the dark colors and how you did the water.

This has a very thick atmosphere. I really like the colors and the light in this. It really delivers this dread and the grief. Very symbolic and a nice addition to the poem.
The three lonely candles do hit home.
