My what an eye-catching photograph! Yes, it pops with color, but there's this sense of beauty and calm, too! It was actually fascinating to see all of the detail you put into this piece--I mean, look at those water droplets! The combination of these two photos, too... I, personally, never would have thought of such a combination! It was an unexpected addition that really kept my mind engaged and furthered my already peaking interest. Not only do the colors compliment each other really well, but the concepts are also connected. The left picture reminds me of open fields (perhaps a search for self or perspective) and of wind (trying not to be swayed by something but maybe being lost to it anyway). The right picture... just what a beautiful, gorgeous flower! My photographing skills are amateur, but I couldn't help but want to capture this splendor, too! The water droplets almost seem like tears.. but there's this sense of calm that fills me, because the flower is open and maybe weeping, but it is hopeful and still trying to grow. It still wants to shine. That, and thinking about it now, the left almost seems like thorns. It's almost the promise that there are shadows and skeletons in the past, bringing of sorrow and hurt, but there is hope, and a reason to hope. Perhaps this is just the writer in me that loves symbolism, but this photograph really captured me! It was so lovely, and had great movement (how that left picture circles you right back to that splendid flower with the arch of the plant). The complimentary colors and the movement probably was my favorite about this piece, aside from the actual captured subjects! If you don't mind my asking: are you making it into the professional world with your photography? I really feel like these photographs in your gallery are of such quality and passion...I guess I can easily envisage them in a an actual gallery or hanging on a wall! (:
bitter-sweet it's so sad flowers die so fast. It's so much effort until they bloom in all their beauty and then it's just for a few days. But I guess that's why I appreciate them so much. Because those moments where they touch my heart and soul are so rare and yeah, sometimes I do wish I could stop time and enjoy the lovely moments in life some more^^
not sure if it was intentional..but great use of the golden spiral in your composition!~ both of the flowers seem to form a rainbow shape^^ also, i got this flower for my graduation and i tried to preserve it and 'didn't want time to pass'
