Daily Deviation

Given 2010-01-07
I Look Digital by *LyDeea Fine Art Nature Photography. To me, that is what I see when I see this, something completely unique and exceptional that goes beyond being a photograph of a bird, and makes it stand out amongst it's own. This is the kind of work I can see on walls of art galleries, printed large. The tonal range in the whites and grays really are done just right, capturing a beautiful spectrum of contrast. A very stunning photograph. ( Featured by kkart )
This is positively exceptional, without any question. It is so very refreshing to see something that resembles fine art nature photography, I tip my hat to you.

This is utterly just dramatic, a perfect black and white I feel and an image that really works wonderfully well, nice tonal range in this and against the black, it really sets it up for some wonderful color theory principles, as far as it being bold and stark, let alone the luminescence how the contrast plays out.

This is the kind of stuff you see in magazines, and this in my opinion is perhaps one of the most wonderful shots, and refreshing, that I have seen in some time!

This is a beautiful portrait of a pelican, looking at the others that you linked from the same shoot, I do like this one the best.

Pros: The exposure is great - the lights and darks all seem to fit in perfectly. Great contrast - the black background works for this type of portrait. Very nice composition too.

Cons: The detail is nice, but a slightly sharper image would really give this photo more of a "wow" factor. I feel that there might be too much blur near his eye. The dark part in the lower left is a little distracting - doesn't seem like dark belongs there.
