This beautiful photo has an exquisite quality of serenity about it...that draws the viewer in beckons them to understand this alien world. The artist has used the gradient to perfection with the emphasis on the mauve tones with the accents of yellow and purple bringing the whole idea together. The world created in this photo indeed looks alien, but also has a familiar quality, bringing memories of warm spring days in the country and cool summer nights of romance. The artist has created a small series of similar photos, but each one IS unique and individual in its presentation. This is my favorite one....and I look forward to seeing more from this artist.
I agree with ladycompassion you kept all that good quality with out degrading it with too much special effects. It is a work that is very well done.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a critique to my work and the time to browse around my gallery! It made my day better to read such kind words! I hope to not disappoint in the future!
