Breaking up

22K Views
I shot this a day in March when the ice was breaking up. I would love to hear your thoughts on it, technical improvements, style, feeling, mood? What comes to your mind when you see it?

It calls to mind the brokenness of a divorced family, and how often times the children can be forced to choose between the two of their parents; each of the two halves representing the two halves of their family.

home is where the heart is...over the edge ....stranded....but still beautiful.

reminds me of Caspar David Friedrichs "Eismeer" - well done! Really like the blue tint and the dramatic feel. It's nice and balanced with the 2 houses. I could imagine to add some other element in the left down corner.

of course, this was also my first thought (i mean the eismeer)... :D

love the composition and the "arrangement" of the ice, incredible... :D

wow... gorgeous! I'm kinda thinking of a breaking mind. Everything falls apart and floats away.

Such original ideas you come up with!  It's great to see something NEW!

This is absolutely beautiful! Reminds me of Brett Helquist's illustrations. I really like how the top half of the image has such a calm atmosphere whilst the bottom half is dramatic and full of movement. Your attention to detail really is breath-taking!

I think a hint of color (like slightly red roof to make the house stand out more) might help a bit. But it's still a great work - I love your photomanipulation skills and imagination :clap: :+fav:

Holland Island immediately came to mind: [link] Maybe because I'm a sucker for abandoned places being "reclaimed" by nature.
As far as your piece goes, nothing major, really. It's all good. :) Well, one thing, when I think of it, perhaps the colour palette is a bit uniform.

I'd like to start off by saying that the emotional and conceptual impact of this work is stunning. I feel the brutal and bitter sting of being torn away from your "companion". However, I feel that this needs more work. For one, it still feels like the two halves of the house are photoshopped in; they needed to blended in a little bit more. For one, there is not nearly enough snow on them to match what the weather has done to the surrounding areas. Also, it took me a bit to realize that it was actually one house torn in two. Hope this helps.

I think I will need to find a different place to build a house next time. I may have a big TV, but it's too far away right now.
