The contrast in this pictureis quite simply amazing, the filter makes the picture look so much more vibrant and beautiful, truely beautiful.
I love the way the image is so unique and inspiring because the change in colour is only on the one bit of the picture. Its not complete which is absoutely breath-taking,this technique has an amazing impact and very original.
The picture itself underneath all the change looks so simple but the extended lines make it seem as if goes on forever and the sun behind the base gives a glimmer of hope.
Very well constructed piece of work, very impressed, keep up the good work
of course a pleasant one! well i rarely ever fave a portrait because i don't like the ubiquity of a certain beauty ideal. i think it's depressing. if you make portraits that do not only celebrate beauty, it might be interesting for me too. i like the stuff you do, but try it out if you have the feeling that you should^^
i don't know i think it depends on the viewer and what he or she is looking for unconsciously. i feel moved the most by photos of places, photos that convey a certain mood. photos that bring memories or wishes to life i guess the way scents and music do. most models strike a pose. that may look good but it does not convey anything to me. whereas natural portraits do. but you are right about most people preferring portraits. that's my impression too.
