Daily Deviation

Given 2012-02-18
Suggester Says: I find this photo just beautiful. The tone and colours are rather dark, but strangely this feels happy... perhaps because he is holding her bouquet and her umbrella. A sweet gesture which is made timeless by the dark overtones of the photo.

Vision/Originality: While it is a stunning photo and definitely an eye catcher, I feel as if the Vision of the final product completely counters what the meaning of the characters portray. They're married, and it's supposed to be the happiest day of their lives. Yet with the dark tone and heavy bordering, it makes a very dark and depressing work, which while not necessarily bad, doesn't seem like it was your original intent. I gave you a four for Originality because it is uniquely done, but the 3 for Vision stands as is because it's slightly confusing as to what precisely you were trying to portray in your edit (I'm also taking into account you mentioned it rained, which would have made it dark anyway. However, the colours still would have been very bright and differed from one another, whereas your editing of this kind of over layed everything in a monotoned and dull way, except for the bride and groom. :))

Technique/Impact: While I personally and professionally don't like the technique you used with this photo (photographing the subjects in the centere/what seems to be heavy editing/adding a border, making the work seem bulky), you definitely didn't overdo it so as to take away from the beautiful things. Maybe it's just my personal preference for minimally edited works, but even very few professional businesses and photographers who shoot weddings don't very often used the post processing you used. As for Impact, though, you definitely deserve five stars. It's unique, thoguth provoking (as to which emotion you're trying to convey), and definitely memorable. Not one that should be forgotten anytime soon by those who view it. :)

Even though the bride is balanced by the male figure I think that they are too centered. I think that the composition would be a little more dynamic if it were cropped a little thus making the figures more off balanced. Other wise beautiful work. The tonalities and the color scheme are amazing. The contrast you create with the color scheme makes the bride dominant. The repetition of the white is very successful in moving the viewer's eye around the picture plane. This piece has a lot of emotion and evokes that emotion on the viewer. Beautiful piece. Well done.

Of course, and that's a good thing. I just would give it a more natural analog vignette. But i see you already doing this in your newer photographs. Thank you have a great day too :)
