Critique by MistressSlytherin Oct 3, 2011, 5:16:19 PM
This is an overall amazing piece of art. Many people have taken pictures of a pathway or of nature, but this one really stands out. The colors are very rich and the image is very clear. The bridge's design (the tree branch railing) really adds to the overall mystical look of this image. The sepia toned sky sort of gives this an ominous feeling as if we were getting ready to make a journey into a different world or a forest out of a fantasy novel. I may be looking into this too deep, but that was my initial feeling from the picture when I took a good look at everything.

Overall, I'd say the picture is practically perfection. I can't really see anything that needs to be improved upon. Although, pictures of pathways are quite common and not too original, but again, you managed to take a simple shot from nature and turn it into something very powerful. Great work, you have amazing talent!

It's hard to put into words what I like about tthis one, but I think it has to do with the asymmetry. On one side of the bridge, which is already a unique looking bridge, is a serene body of water reflecting the sky like a mirror, on the other, a small field of grass. All the trees are a different shade of green and have their own unique shape. The red sky allows a great contrast to it all. Great photo.

It is very beautiful. I have played around with it myself, but I haven't produced anything nearly as dramatic as your work.

This is great, I love the ominous feeling the sepia toned sky gives off in the image, it makes this look very fantastical. I've always liked taking shots of pathways, this one is excellent!

Stunning. It represents to me adventure, moving on. Taking a risk by seeing what's on the other side. A place most of us wish to go but are afraid to take that first step. The bridge represents to me that hand that extends itself urging you on forward. The beauty beyond the bridge inspires calm and peace.
