A Heart of Wood

By sherlob
Another in my growing project of using hearts as props…

I'm thinking of only uploading images that I will print in the future - this one included (it looks rather good if I do say so myself). The idea is to use this as a method of self editing. I'd be curious to know your thoughts.

I like this the best of the hearts so far. The wicker has acquired organic debris that makes it look a part of its setting, it 'sits' beautifully in the corner and the angle of the roots, and the pastel light is just gorgeous.

The processing looks quite stylized (as opposed to appearing strictly realistic) and I really like it. The composition is superb.
I think a more selective approach to uploading is no bad thing. Its surely better to put quality before quantity,

I hadn't seen the previous two, so I've just gone and looked at them. My honest first thought on this one was that it was too contrived (sorry!) ... but looking at it in conjunction with the other two, it actually makes more sense now. I think that with this version, the two tones in the sky (the orange and the pink) and the overhanging branches at the top of the frame take away something from the heart for me. It's odd, but if I cover the sky in the image at the horizon line, and just leave that lovely tangle of tree roots and the cold blue tones of the water, the heart seems to blend in much more but also becomes a much more important part of the whole. That may not be your intention at all, though, and this is just my opinion!

I think that of the three so far, Heart to Heart is my favourite.
