Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)
This did give me a surprise
excellent artistic work, well done!
Nice one - love the very apt quote
brilliant work v1 for me wonderful colour and detail cracking light nice one
Love V1 though V3 is not too far behind!
I'll put these in reverse order. V3 is strong, intense. V2 has the cold loneliness. Intriguing subject.
Great set of images V1 for me and V3 looks somehow threatening!
Super set, wonderful imagination..........Sandy
excellent set ;
mono suits the subject well too...
What a fabulous thing, what sort of size is?
Thank you all
This is about the artificial environment i am living in, reservoir, dense forest with no light passing through and the heron seems more real than the rest, thanks to the imagination of the artist ( unknown ) and the inspiration from Lydia, the size is about two meters high from the water surface probably more, under the water who knows, probably it stands on a chimney of a flooded house !! too cold to find out and by the way this is entwistle reservoir north of Bolton.
That's a very cool sculpture!
I agree with Moira that #3 is the strongest of these and I think it would be even better without the hint of the far shore at beak-level. It's a very effective black and white conversion.
#1 has good colours and is nicely sharp but it's let down a bit by the composition. The crop is rather too tight to the left and right but the hint of grass at the bottom right would be better cropped or cloned out.
#2 is a vey good black and white conversion, with good contrast between the pale sculpture and the dark water. The composition as a whole is good, but I think it would be better with the heron looking into the frame, rather than leading the eye out. The biggest problem is that the heron's head is rather lost against the far shore of the lake. It would have been better to either get down lower so that the head was against the dark trees, making it easier to see. Alternatively, depending on the surrounding terrain, you might have been able to get higher, looking down so that the head was against the water. That would have the advantage of reducing the amount of flat white sky in the shot.
I've posted a mod of #2 with the heron flipped. Of course, that's cheating but I do think the composition works better that way. But perhaps the rest of the view wouldn't have been quite so appealing if you'd swung the camera round to the right to move the heron, facing the correct way, into the bottom-left corner.
So... I completely forgot to post my mod and I just came back to it to find that you hadn't enabled mods — I was sure you had! Never mind.
Cheers Dave, just walking the dog and take snaps and thanks for the suggestion/mode /critique, makes sense, nice one.
V3 is my fav.
