Hello! :happybounce:
This photograph is really a lovely one to look at and explore. You have a wonderful setting and one that allows for a lot of photographic exploration. Overall, I like the colors that you chose to use for this image, it is nice to see a different green for the plants and the water looking nearly black.

A few thoughts/suggestions. I would personally love to have seen a little longer of an exposure so that the water was softer-looking. With an extended exposure it would have matched a lot of the "softness" of the surrounding life.

You have on the right hand side a tree cut off, and on the left side additional trees that were cut. Between these you have a fairly blank negative space. My eyes were drawn to this space, and I wonder if perhaps having brought the tree on the right entirely into view may have added to that.

Overall nicely done, thank you for sharing!

"YOUR RATING FOR THE TECHNIQUE USED IN THE ART" 3 / 5 Technique

"YOUR RATING FOR THE IMPACT OF THE PIECE" 3 / 5 Impact



:bulletblack: What emotions does the art invoke?
"I am thinking of taking a walk in the country side when it is spring time. Everything in the nature have such a fresh green color, and just walking around in it makes you happy. Everything seems so beautifull. That is the emotions this picture evokes in me."

:bulletblack: How do you find the composition of the above piece?
"I think the composition is really good, and it is not boring to look at at all because of the little river that flowes from the right corner to the left upper corner. It makes it interesting to watch that it isnīt perfectly central. I hope you know what I mean :) "

:bulletblack: Would you consider the above piece of work as unique?
"It is unique in the sense that you are the one taken this picture and it is beautifull, but it would not be a showstopper if you mixed it together with 1 million other pictures."

:bulletblack: Do you think the above piece justifies the subject well?
"I actually think so. I could imagine you might live in the city. So being out in the nature sorrounded by green nature would be like another kind of world. So I really believed you have nailed that!"

:bulletblack: Do you think the artist has used the right medium in the above piece?
"Absolutely. But I am wondering about something. It looks like you have putted on a layer of smething or photographed with a special technique. The colors seem a little off. Like you have made them a tad more green or blue than the photo should be. Can you tell me how you did that? Or was it just the wheather that showed these colors?"

:bulletblack: If there is anything that you would change about the above piece what would it be?
"Only the colors. Like I said above. I think they look a little bit off. And I canīt explain why"



Artist Comments: "A really great photography where I believe the artist has nailed the concept that she was focusing to acchieve. It makes you want to go there yourself, and just enjoy life. I look forward to see more work from you in the future! "

Fair :D
Thank you for such an intensely detailed critique! I always find these so helpful! Yes, the colours were actually on purpose, I edited the colour-curves afterwards because I thought the original photo was quite boring. I might change them a little bit the other way though, since people don't seem to like it!

Thanks for all your complments :heart:

Alright! So you requested a comment and here it is:

Overall, I really like the composition and the framing of this piece. I think it works well that you've got it all in a square format there. The landscape is quite cool in its composition and.. yeah, it's great how you've got a bit of land, water, trees, sky, and quite a lot of other things that come together effectively enough.

What I dislike about this piece is the colour, tone, atmosphere.. mostly because it feels quite dry, overexposed, and.. yeah, it feels stretched in tone, I guess. I feel that you could soften the contrast a bit.. though perhaps you could keep that, actually, as the contrast is good, but add a bit of saturation to it and somehow make it look more.. natural, I suppose? Softer, really, as it is pretty harsh for a landscape that is supposed to look somewhat serene..

But that's just how I feel about things. ^^;

It's a good piece, anyway. :nod:

This comment really helped me, I've been trying to improve this piece for a while so it's always good when I get advise this useful. :aww:

I know you didn't really choose to leave this comment, but I made some changes and I'd really appreciate if you tell me whether you think that it is better or worse? It looks more natural now, but also harsher.
Feel free to ignore this, as you've done as you've said, but here is the original photo before the comment: [link] and this one here is now the edited one.

Thanks so much! And - as I say - don't feel any need to reply. :blush:

Ah..

Well, I guess it can't be helped if the original photo didn't turn out as well as it could have there. :hmm:

It certainly looks better, the edited version. Feels more full for sure. :O

I've seen your photo being featured in the artist interview in :icontheartplatform: . I haven't read the interview yet, because I wanted to take a closer look at your photo first and now I need to write a comment. XD

Wow! This work carries a lot of emotion and really gives off the feeling of nostalgia. I really like the theme behind the photo and the calmness it brings. However, there are a couple things I would like to note. The yellowish and ancient looking overtone is something that is seen a lot in photos, making it somewhat bring. The subject is wonderful and really captures something, but the tone over it takes away from it a bit and lets it fall into the cracks of cliche. I suggest taking away some of it and letting more of the natural photo slip in. This way, it'll be more unique and the brightness won't take away from the photo as much. Also, try experimenting with different angles and perspectives. With a great spot like this, you could defiantly find a very interesting angle. But overall, the picture is really great and brings a lot of emotions and memories to mind. Keep up the great work :)
