Graviton

Made for The Luminarium: Elements: theluminarium.net/v3/exhibits.…

This was done with a couple of photos taken on my flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. We really had an amazing view there, watching the sunset and the whole spectrum of colors above the clouds and below. That spectacular sight alone was worth the money already. :)

The graviton is a hypothetical elementary particle that mediates the force of gravitation

This piece is visually enticing. The positioning of the colors does wonders for the feel of the piece: the center is lush with blues and greens, and the light colors on the edges of the clouds in the center are accented wonderfully with pinks and purples. Yet besides having a clear focus which is visually appealing, the artist doesn't neglect other aspects of the piece, such as what you can see near the bottom: detail is shown, and the image is clear cut and crisp. The top of the image is more on the dark side and near the bottom, but the center is lighter and uses two distinct color schemes. These schemes create contrast which is simply wonderful. How small the airplane appears shows the viewer how big the scene really is, and is a wonderful addition.

This picture really demonstrates a grand contrast of many colors from the blues to the purples to the reds to the oranges. A difficult thing to do in some cases and it's quite splendid how you merged picture with art seamlessly, looking gorgeous yet incredibly dangerous. Anyone would be in awe at the very sight of this in real life, if not already at the pic. Props for going original with the incredible look you gave it. I also like the little details of pieces of rock floating round about, definitely sells the gravity. All in all, a great piece of wonderful art.

Fantastic picture! Really love the collors and the vision in the picture. Especially the blue compared with the red skyline is impressing.
Maybe something to add is the small 'airplane' in the right bottom corner:
Really like it but maybe you should have made it a little biger and havig trouble with your amazing gravitron?
I'd like to add that i have the feeling that there is still something missing in your picture. But that might just be me.
Really like the lightning at the bottom, they give some extra dimension to your work
Fantastic work! Keep up the good work!

Wow! This is so visually stunning that I ignored everything else on the page. I have always loved epic scenes of the sky whether they are real or not. "Gravitation" really caught my eye because of the stunning colors and contrast. The creator said that he based this off of something he saw in real life, and I would have loved to see what he saw. The tilt of the image adds to the chaotic feeling, yet the overall image is calming and serene, like if God was looking down at Earth's apocalypse. I'm not sure if the object towards the left of the screen is a person or an object, but it creates the feeling of danger. The lightning and motion also contribute to this feeling. In the end, I really like this piece for its colors, effects, and final composition overall. I will definitely check out more of this deviant's artwork! Great job!
