CLXV. by arianeka CLXV. by arianeka
Nice, France | 2014

(I don't especially like this one but apparently some people do ? A friend told me she liked it, so there)

edit : ok this might be my most popular photo so far, how about that ! I'll never understand what you like Internet, you're so full of surprise

11.02.2015 edit : aaaaand now this is my first Daily Deviation and I sound like a pretentious ass in my previous comments. Thank you DA people, thank you to everyone who comment/fav, you really are all unpredictable in the best way. Hugs & smooches to all, you made my day.

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-02-11
Even though the reflection projects an upside down image, it is the reflection that makes CLXV. profound in providing a backdrop to the people caught at the very top of arianeka's brilliant photograph of city life. ( Suggested by xbastex and Featured by 3wyl )

Great photo! People always tend to like the photos I took, that I didn't think were that great. Maybe we just don't see it because we took the picture and have our inner critics analyzing it. Oh well! Great job!

Art "taste" is subjective for one, but your own creations being your subjectivity expressed through a medium it's plain impossible to grab what others see in it. Oh well (:

The mix of the reflection and actual humans is what it gives that edge. Usually it's one of those two but you've managed to mix both together. I can't speak for the rest but I think that's what it got me to say "beautiful"

The reflection is very clear and the orange color is a great combination with the mist and the black silhouettes :)

Really cool photo! At first I thought it was just upside down, but then I realized what it was and found it amazing because it's such a clear reflection and it fools my eyes beautifully. The people in the background and the mist gives it a bit of mystery and that's really nice. :D

I must say that I like your comment about sounding like a "pretentious ass" in the description. It just goes to show that it's almost impossible to predict what people will like. :XD:
Do you like it a little bit better now that it's become a DD? ;)

And no I still don't really like it aha. But I'm so happy and thankful for all the feedback, I don't even care about the picture itself 8)
