Daily Deviation

Given 2014-02-17
a sunset child by morexod shows a talented use of lighting to enhance and subdue features and emotion. ( Suggested by EatingTheSun and Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconeatingthesun:
This picture merges all that we like to see in a deviation: harmony in colors, a beautiful subject, a moment that could be any time of the day. The model inspires relax, but at the same time her expression communicates that something ( and the viewer can choose that "something " ) isn´t well. Something doesn´t let her fully relax and lay back against the blue wall.

A Sunset Child is poetry in a picture and leaves the viewer in a stasis for a couple of minutes. The model´s face is humanly beautiful, not the fashion-beautiful but the true beauty you only find in people you know and you know how to read.

That´s the magic of this picture: the photographer makes you think that the Sunset Child is one of your friends spending a couple of minutes in deep thinking.

:iconjellylamps:
I do not really know what to say about this apart from the fact that I like how this emphasizes the focal point and contrast IN the focal point. The dazed expression makes a person wonder what exactly led to this scene. Well, that added to what would become of it. There appears to be a lot of emotion, yet at the same time numbness to that emotion. Something I find very unique about this is that there is a lot to appreciate about it, but it takes some time to see it all. Because of that, it draws attention and keeps it for a while. Nice work.

Many people try to make their paintings look like photos.
I think it's far more interesting and challenging to see a photo approach the painterly.

Amazing. The contrast is spectacular, particularly the pie shape of light on the subject's face.

Compositionally interesting; the model's pose is perfect, and the wallpaper adds a nice touch. Very well-colored, and the lighting is awesome as well.

This has such a successful painterly feel to it, that I was convinced it was a painting at first glance. I'm really impressed with the soft lighting on this. The shadows and colors couldn't be more perfect. Beautiful.
