To me, this is one of your most delicate and thoughtful concepts. While the background is just plain white and thus appropriately minimalistic, you've put a lot of work in the main subject. The model of the brain is very detailed and I can only imagine how hard it is to get that shape down.

The idea itself is both cute and thoughtful and picks up a very old problem well know to most lovers.

I am not a big fan of the whtie background, but I guess it works here and is, as I said, appropriate.

Keep up the good and creative work!

I think this is the most direct image I've ever seen, when measuring heart and reason in one's decisions. I loved the way how a simple composition managed to get such an impact on viewers.
I also liked the idea of balance in decisions, and the fact that neither heart or reason are weighing more on «the scale».
The «cartoonish idea» in the concept of this work was also very well achieved, as it seems the objects may come to life at any time! Trully a great work and valuable lesson for people who may be trying too hard to carry out a message.

It looks like it's tilted slightly.. the brain seems to weigh a tad more if you look closely.

oh interesting concept, so which you would choose: brain or love? so if you choose love (if you are in love) you are fool (there is a saying: love is fool); but on the other hand, if you wanna be smart, if you choose the brain, than you are really smart guy, but you don't get the love than... :) i guess it's better to make a balance between both of them :)

The heart does not symbolise explicit love, but feelings in general. Nontheless, your interpretation says what I wanted to express. :)

Great concept! Heart wins for me, but in the picture I think it looks like it's tilting a teeeny bit more on the side of the brain :P

Thank you!
My intention was to let the viewer decide to which direction the scale would fall for him but though I did my best, it is not 100% horizontal :P
