Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-24
Displaying an evocatively dream-like aesthetic, Come Home by *LuizaLazar is a well-crafted vision of former times with an embedded element of subtle mystery. ( Suggested by SavageFrog and Featured by arctoa )
Chroma - the tree's solid browns and their brilliant green leaves that luminesce under daylight - it has all been drained from this photograph, elevating it beyond the reality of time and placing its subject matter amongst lurid dreams. Receding upwards into the background is a grassy slope, from which trees rise; some are leaning, some branch out at their base, but their relative positions suggest a trail leading to a higher light. Fallen leaves abound, frozen in air yet carried by wind, expressing change that is not immediately evident. The entire work is thus symbolic of the spirit, its restless ambition through life and death towards enlightenment. Exploiting a natural curiosity in the forest, the delivery is executed with much finesse.

Timing and location are crucial in photographs involving "suspended" objects, and for this one it could not have been better. Besides incoming sunlight illuminating and emphasising the singular trail, the aforementioned fallen leaves make themselves clear among the trees and their shadows (i.e. darker areas). Above all these are leaves still hanging from branches, together forming a mystical fog or veil that entices the viewer's inner sense of wonder to come out. Most photographs seen today are taken because of an objective desire to record something visual, and even then those so-called conceptual photographs founder in their unintended focus on something relatable. This, however, can resonate directly with the heart, showing nothing but feeling.

Five stars for everything? Yes, because this work does not contain a single flaw. Its Daily Deviation status is therefore rightfully deserved.

I have to say, I have no idea what the artist did to make this picture look this amazing, but WOW! What a picture.

The blurry effect makes me think of this picture as a dream-a beautiful, wonderful, peaceful dream.

I'm sorry, but I am a Narnia fan so, I got to say, "THIS REMINDS ME OF NARNIA!!!" Only because of the magical looking glow peeking out of the branches.

The only thing that I would have done is given the trees more of that magical looking glow from the sun. Maybe a break through the branches of the trees,

But besides that, AMAZING picture!

For some odd reason, this reminds me of the line from Pink Floyd: "My father has gone over the ocean."
