fireflies by RawPoetry fireflies by RawPoetry
I have absolutely no idea how I feel about this. I wanted to keep it simple, but now I'm not sure if it's too bland and could use some secondary focal points... I also wanted it to have a dark lighting kind of feel, but I'm not sure if I'm happy with how that turned out either. :noes:

Anywho, all constructive criticism is greatly appreciated! :dummy:

Really brilliant and quite beautiful, however I do keep seeing a face in the contours of the background and it rather distracting.
Over all, a I give it four :)s out of five.
Good day!

I like it, I love the colour in it! Maybe the only thing was the background to the left of the glass I found kind of distracting, as if the blur was a bit too prominent/ not soft enough? But don't listen to me haha, its probably only my eyes. :D

Why thankya! I think i see what you mean about the background... it also looks a bit brighter than the rest of it which could be causing a distraction... but anywho, thanks again! :love:

I like it but I see what you mean. It reminds me of Christmas lights and confetti, I like the dark background, your clarity is great and it works, but does it? Is it missing something? water in the glass? Different cropping? I like the texture of the velvety fabric underneath and the neat reflection in the very bottom of the base of the class. I like the rim of the glass. Maybe it's the lighter bit to the left in the background? Hmmm. I'm not sure. Mabe too much dark space above and to the right? I think I'd play with the cropping a bit, but not sure if it will be better or worse. Experiment a bit more because I certainly liek the idea and the effect.

Great! Keep it up! If you get a chance, can you visit :iconthephotographygroup: and vote in the Featured Monthly Artist Contest there? My photo is the Monochrome Mountain if you like it. Very different from your work with the glass and bokeh but that's what makes life interesting! Many thanks and look forward to seeing your next "experiments".

I actually like it. The implicity is what brings out the colours. As well as that the texture underneath it looks rather like Velvet :) might i ask what you used for the background?

The background is a fluffy purple blanket, and christmas lights for the bokeh. :)
