The rubbles of today will be the pillars of tomorrow,
Broken pianos are still able to play the " F " of Future,
Crisis darken our daily skies as a call for a new dawn,
So, we ignore the sparrows and front the adventure.

haha that was a poor critique,
I adore your style...

that flighty bird's note is the first thing out of the ordinary one might see
so the eye direction is useful, it just seems so indifferent,
or contrastingly absent of an emotion,
or at least one cannot easily be read by expression alone.

or maybe the background is too warm
to gather the warm charm of his little blush lit face.

pft who needs photography,
but my only critique if I must....

Is that the emotive capacity in this seems crippled,
by the awkward gaze of the subject, as if going 'oh don't take my photo'
maybe i'm saying that perspective as an observer of this piece could be tweaked,
but who am I to say what a defect is? as perspective is just that.

so~bottom left bird is puffy but shiny so looks too big, if it is a puffed up sparrow it could be softer
and as mentioned, the subjects eyes are looking away from central gaze too much,
avoiding it like an actor would the camera as it can't help catch the gleam of a lens in sight,
if to look too close. To transmit sense of longing or just even just distance...

unless you think of this indeed as a photography... then the amazement of the bird,
is encapsulated by the views amazement of motion being captured so still with clarity or abstract.

AquaSixio, first please let me tell you that I always enjoy looking at your new pictures :dance:!

However, there is something that keeps puzzling me about this one, I think it is the composition, namely the position of the child. It doesn't read right to me. Is it standing at a table? Or lying on its stomach on the ground? Currently I get the impression as if the lower part of its body is buried in the snow and just the upper part is sticking up. :confused:
