It's Never Over by wroth It's Never Over by wroth
Image Description:

"My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder..." ***

Current work, from '09, full viewing is recommend to see the details. Put it in Surreal category because that dreaminess was where I was trying to take this, but it could also have gone into EMOtive Portraits [chuckles]

Your critiques and feedback are always welcome, thanks for looking. :salute:

Critique by arisuart May 28, 2009, 5:02:31 AM
I'm not even sure what to write here. All I can say is that I am still amazed looking at this photo because it did mix with my feelings. When looking at the details it gives even more impact because it's like if the water was some sort of plastic taking inside only the hair and not letting the whole 'romantic' moment go. At the same time even if the perspective of this photo was changed, it looks like everything is about to be sucked by the water including the necklace due to it's direction. The colors are also very appealing.
What do you think?

if your hair was flowing, would look even greater

wroth Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
Some of the other shots had more flow but all the details are lost underwater. It would need to be shot top down to look good I think, from the side like this it's all too vague.

The color-version works a lot better in my eyes, the right more abstract side is a lot more effective and seems to suck you in much better than in the B&W.

And great self-portrait, especially if the viewer is aware of your other abstract work and the passion & sight you have for them. I´d love to be able to one day do a self-portrait that would be even near as cool as this. :)

Keep it up. :painter:

wroth Featured By Owner May 27, 2009
Thanks. I think the b&w makes a more complete synthesis which is what I wanted, the color does have a lot more impact though I'll concede that :)

It is not fun and games to shoot like this on a timer, :no: I just need to figure out how to be in two places at once then I can really get some good photos.

"The cool face of the river asked me for a kiss"

This is so expressive. The longing so deep it's softened to a numbness, as cold as water.

Beautifully done.

the water becomes a wall of jewels in this perspective.
your raven black hair blends/sinks into it perfectly.

No my hair is not really that black, it's dark brown but being wet in places and with this contrast it looks pretty black. Necklace is a Chakana that was given to me, it's underwater here.

This actually works really well in colour too. I suppose it all depends on which tones are present in the photo. The warmth of this is very earthy and rich. It works a lot better than if the stones had been slate or blue. And it compliments your skin well.
