I had put this SCP up years ago and had to remove it soon after because it simply wasn't quite right, the way it was. Since then, I've been considering working on it until I finally caved to myself and wrote it up again from scratch. Most of it is sort of complete, with the exception of the final addendum which I still need to work on. What I need from you guys is a look over to make sure that everything is internally consistent and so I know whether there's enough of a hook to catch people's interest. And, if you have any suggestions to make this more compelling, don't be afraid to mention it. I always enjoy constructive input.
The effects seem a bit extreme for just a photo. In addition, unless I missed something, the photo has nothing to do with the outline in the final addendum.
I think there should be a better balance between the effects and the study of the photo itself. Right now the photo gets one sentence that tells us next to nothing, and the behavior of people exposed to it gets dozens.
That's something I hadn't considered, though I really should have. Thank you for helping me give the whole thing some focus. It will take me some time before I have another draft ready but I would still like some input from other people about its strengths and weaknesses.
