Swirl by RawPoetry Swirl by RawPoetry
Swirly green thing. Don't have anything else so I'm going to post some old shots that I overlooked.

All constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

Again, I can't think of too much to complain about here. Another beautiful job.

If I had to complain about anything...as before, I'd lop off a bit of the dead space at the bottom of the photo..maybe the bottom 1/8th or so. I think this composition lends itself to a wide landscape panorama format and I don't think it hurts that the spiral is dead center horizontally.


The green under the stem and dark space over the stem reminds me of a "yin-yang"

It's beautiful how the stem gently arcs in the background, then changes inflection to end in that tight spiral.

You've also got a very interesting sense of movement in an apparently static shot. The spiral still has the leaves held tightly near the stem, and as the stem fades into the background they gently unfold. I can see the time-lapse movie of this plant unwinding in my mind!

The more I look at it, the more I love it. Definitely one of your best shots! Thanks for making my Wednesday!

You could rotate this into a portrait format, perhaps.. though it's quite cool in the landscape format. :nod:

I really like how things swirl there. I feel as if you could do a lot with something like that. The colours are lovely and the contrast isn't too bad, though a bit too intense, I think.. It wouldn't hurt to brighten this a bit, maybe, but.. that's just me. I think it's not too bad as it is, all in all.

The depth of field is lovely and.. yeah, there is substance here. :la:

Hmmm I hadn't thought of it in a portrait format. Looking at it that way makes me think of a swan for some reason. :o

I agree it is a bit dark... there is a bit of a harsh bright patch on the plant, and when I tried to brighten it it got a bit blown out. I suppose I should've paid more attention to exposure at the time I took the photo... either that or I need to get better at using photoshop. ^^;

Thanks as always for your lovely feedback, it is greatly appreciated! :icongwompplz:
