Daily Deviation

Given 2005-06-18
~Saurav's Alone shows the abyss of life and lonelyness in a very emotive way. The symbolism expressed through this picture is simply breathtaking... ( Suggested by MichaelMagin and Featured by igy )

It's fantastic, it says a lot, it's how I feel. Congrats for the beautiful and touching photo.

This is indeed a very nice picture, i like the sepia undertone although it could have also been equally nice in colour, since the subject of this picture is what gives it most credit.

Mainly levels, colour balance and channel mixer to get this sepia effect.

Nice quality.
But I found it slightly confusing: in terms of what you want to convey to the viewer (without them having to read the title). You could try using a more emotive colour like blue. That way you add more purpose, interest thats relevant to the theme.

Dont listen to me. Im just bored, and i love to criticise. Love your work anyway. Keep it up.

a bit of a cliche concept, but with the cliff face instead of a grass or wheat field, it's rather unique. well done.

Pretty cool... but the cloud isn't alone... that detail could fit very well in the portrait. The lone bird, the lone tree, in front of the final abiss... i can imagine a hangman's noose... :nod: :thumbsup:

I love the image, and I think it's compelling and evocative enough on its own; the title at the bottom almost takes away from the effect of the image itself...

but...wow. this is great!

Yes - I must say I like the approach being used here - with the landscape that carries the tree, while the upward movement of the tree is stopped by the cloud that stretches in over the picture. It makes it look like the tree is almost suspended in the middle of the picture - and thereby creating a feeling of ... anticipation perhaps? That is at least how I perceive it.

However, the fun part here is that I had just uploaded a picture of a tree myself - when I noticed your picture being presented as one of the daily deviations. And I got curious - and discovered that you had done a much better job than me in using a bold contrast and with strong, powerful details in the picture. So I went straight ahead and added some bands with increased contrast in my picture as well. So the question is of course: did I only copy your work - or did I get inspired?

One way or another - you have done a very good job here, and have - without knowing it - tought me something as well. So thank you very much! DeviantArt is a truly a great place pick up ideas, and learn how the truly skilled people solves their creative challenges.

Very impressive. I always love these shots of solitary trees up on the high cliffs. They endure the worst of the elements all alone. Makes me think.

But anyways, the shot is very nice. Excellent job^^

Congratulations on the DD! This is an effective picture. I especially like the fact that there is a tiny bird in the scene. That adds so much. So does the idea that the tree is on the edge of an abyss.

congrats on the DD, and great contrasting, tone...and its intresting how the grey tones in the sky fade from almost black down to almost white, by the time it hits the tree....this thee however reminds me of the tree from Carnival, the hbo tv show
