Ruin by Nelleke Ruin by Nelleke
I uploaded this before but in a different compostion nelleke.deviantart.com/art/Maj… ... I had trouble with the composition back then, it felt I just couldn't get it to work optimally, so I made a decision and uploaded it. Now, a month later, I accidentally stumbled upon the composition I was subconsiously looking for :la: For me (a lot more than it will probably do to you ;)) it makes a huge difference, so I'm uploading the new version, and I'll scrap the other one.


Storm And White Flowers by Nelleke

Armadale is a really special place to be and I love the picture. I have taken one from the same spot and it is "nothing" against this one! Great work!

hmmm personally i actually liked the original Majestic version better... the original feels more personal as it places me in the place of a passerby who stumbled across this gate and is immediately arrested by its beauty (maybe because i can see the steps and the full frame of the gate). this one takes away from that and feels just like an artist's creation. could you elaborate on your thinking behind favoring this composition over the original? of course you dont have to cuz i know an artist does not have to explain herself...

Hummm.... funny.  Not to second-guess your artistic sight any... but I think I like the other one better, though it's hard to pin down why.  In this print, you've cropped off more of the exterior wall, especially above and below, creating a slightly more rectangular frame.  You've also taken out the stairs in the foreground.   --  This one emphasizes the middle arch, where in the other one the external entry way (arch and stair) are stronger.  I think this one draws you more into the interior of the castle, while the other stands more as a fortress, with the observer on the outside looking in.

Amazing how a slightly different cropping on a photo can change the whole feel of the composition.

Beautiful work in both cases...  ;-)

This is such a powerful image. Its hard to find the right words for what I want to say, it is so symmetrical yet its has the organic, weathered unsymmetrical look to it. Such an amazing representation of what nature is doing to our structures over time. We want everything to be perfectly balanced but true beauty is found in imbalance and imperfection.

Hm, alhoewel ik de rode klimop boven de poort erg mooi vind in de vorige, heeft deze veel meer focus op de binnenplaats en het rood daar. Mooi gedaan^^
Ben erg benieuwd of je deze techniek vaker gaat toe passen.:)
