(First time ever I really believe a deviation deserves five stars.)
As the previous critique already stated, this picture just cries out Freedom! Really makes you think.
It has such a strong draw to it, the viewer can't help but to be astonished of how real the scene looks (one of the very few photo-manipulations that actually look like the real deal). Anyway, I like how you put the viewer into the picture and make him (or her, to be politically correct <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Wink)" />) feel what your characters feel. Ego-perspective really works here. One just cannot help but gasp for air and really feel the sensation, the adrenaline, the atmosphere of this picture. I especially love the red "target-circles" on the ground (although I doubt these two will actually reach them).
MASSIVE IMPACT. I love it!
I love this picture so much that I find it to write about it, keep overwriting what I wrote, afraid that my critique doesn’t match the quality of the picture…
It is an awesome image, able to unleash your imagination, who wouldn’t like to have a flying bicycle just like in the movie “E.T.”?
The image has a very good edition and is extremely well treated, can’t see any flaws about that, but I believe that what makes this image so especial is the point of view, the bike was placed for you to feel like you’re the one grabbing the bike. You’re flying now, you’re riding the sky, above the clouds, the wind is blowing on your clothes, you scream as loud as your lungs allow you to, you’re free! I believe that the concept of this picture is just that, the feeling of freedom, and it was accomplished perfectly.
