Inspirational Art: Beyond the Mask

Here is a little back story on this art piece.
While wandering the shops in Keystone, SD I came across this animated manikin and decided to try and capture it with a soft exposure.  When I got home and looked at the original photo I was pleased with the softness but a little disappointed with the motion blur. Yet I still liked the photo and wanted to use it to create an inspirational piece that dealt with the reality that most adults wear masks of some sort, whether to conceal or protect their true selves. After some thought I came up with the wording and how I wanted to depict the idea through the addition of photos that represent an innocent exuberance and a more mature caution. Here is the original photo.
