I think this has to be one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen here on DeviantArt.

The way the bright yellow of the flowers stands against the lovely blue sky. Fluffy white clouds blurred and softened, and in the distance you can see the tall yellow flowers reaching to touch them.

The focus on the hand holding the butterfly. I could spend hours talking about it I'm sure. The butterfly may not be real but the way it's held it holds a certain brilliance. Like if you let go it would fly away. Carrying dreams or wishes with it. The way your hand holds it appears gentle as if you would break it. Standing among this sea of yellow flowers it could be imagined as anyone's hand . Yours, mine.... Holding onto our dreams, not wanting them to fly away. The color of the butterfly stands out well. And the way it's placed on the horizon, adds so much to the character and magnificence of this phot. Drawing your eye straight to it. ^^

Beautifully done. Amazing composition. And so much meaning. 20/20 stars ;D <img src="…" width="25" height="25" alt=":clap:" title="Clap" />

I'm not just throwing stars at you here... I really feel this is a great work of art.
The color scheme is nicely balanced, split complimentary, with a light blue backdrop. It's very simple and elegant. The hand is quite pasty looking offense to the owner of the hand<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />, but it gives it a surreal effect and almost makes me think of a lifeless, or, colorless hand grasping on to life, or, a colored world.

The butterfly is obviously not real, but it doesn't take away from the statement that this photo makes to me... though it still throw the image a little. But good luck plucking a real butterfly out of the air<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" />

The focus of the shot is on the hand and butterfly, but it is hard to see if the camera is focused on that or the flowers. in the foreground.

Over all this is a great photo. fantastic job.

Did you just say stand? Just how tall are those flowers?
Rona-Keller's avatar
They do get pretty tall, haha! I wasn't standing straight though, these were about 4 ft 10 tall. :aww:
AmbientDays's avatar
That's still really tall though, I'd like to see them once in my lifetime...
