A Thousand Years

'I will be brave; I will not let anything take away what's standing in front of me.
Every breath, every hour, has come to this.' - A Thousand Years
by Christina Perri

Thoughts and Description
This pendant was one of the things I REALLY wanted a macro lens for. Yet, it took me a year to finally think of how I was going to photograph it - when I found this little pine cone while out earlier this year, it just clicked. I was also inspired by the Twilight books (which I was re-reading around that time) to combine my beautiful vintage, intricate and blood-coloured jewel with an element of nature that, like the jewel and the never-dying vampires, lasts forever.

This is a hand-me-down from my grandmother - I truly love it, and wear it every day. It deserved a place in my gallery :heart:

Edit 27/05/14 - OMG - My second DD!! Wow - I still can't believe it! What a truly lovely surprise to wake up to - a reason to feel ecstatic during these long and boring days of never-ending studying!!! I'm truly honoured - this photo is special to me and I'm so glad it was actually chosen to be featured!!! Thank you ever so much Kaz-D :heart:

These are the moments when I feel extra proud to have put in so much time, love, money and effort into a hobby that I will never regret falling in love with and pursuing :love:

Great work, steady impact, I think you need a different color for the background. I think a green, blue or orange background is in someway is better than the yellow, there is a magical touch in the shot, the camera is just a way to show your passion about a shot, well this is my opinion, great work.
My rates
vision: three stars (60%)
Originality: four stars (80%)
Technique: three stars (60%)
Impact: four stars (80%)
Verdict = three stars and a 'half' (a little shiny star called a wish needs to be true (70%)
// Don't think that this critique is negative opinion, because it's not, I like your work //

Thank you for your critique amirata c:

Perhaps I did make the backround a little too much on the yellow side - I agree. I did intend it to be light green rather than yellow. Maybe a colour monitor issue?

The camera is indeed my tool for expressing myself :meow: Photography is my true passion :heart:
