Critique by MissPreRaphaelites Apr 2, 2012, 1:45:44 PM
I personally love this, but I know it's a matter of taste as there are many similar photographs out there. I think the fact that the face is not the focal point of this photograph is what makes it intriguing, draws the viewer in. Instead we are drawn to the hand, and the fragility of the torso, and consequently the fragility of the branch and therefore nature itself. Only on second glace do we notice the face and the black eyes which seem to tell a story. The dots of flowers may be snow at first glance, because the eye is preoccupied with the rawness of the body. Great work! Going straight into my favourites!

I always love it when a photography's able to capture a legend, and here you seem to have found Peter Pan, and this guy's definitely in Neverland. Peter's always been close to nature, and this boy's spirit seems to be so close to all of us that looking at him sometimes feels like watching a mirror image - at least when we're dreaming about our world, how it could be, how it should be to feel better in it. Maybe this is a world for boys and girls to become one, and so your character strikes a pose that's beyond the typical image of a boy or a girl. It's deeply human, and we've forgotten about that. Thanks for reminding us of Kensington Gardens.

Ich hoffe jetzt mal, dass du deutsch sprichst :D

Zu erst einmaL: Jedes deiner Bilder ist einfach nur wunder, wunderschön
Es sind Fotos, welche nicht sofort wieder in Vergessenheit geraten. Sie sagen enorm viel aus, sowas ist echt eine Kunst für sich. Ich könnte jetzt
wahrscheinlich stundenlang allein nur schon dieses Bild interpretieren...

Ehm...ich quatsche zu viel

Einen watch hast du jedenfalls auf sicher ;)

I think this is beautiful. But unlike the other commenter, i think its the face that draws you in and is the most arresting part, not the hands... particularly because one eye is obscured. It's got that seeing a fawn in the forest feel to it, (though not saying you look like a deer- its the innocence i'm talking about) when it freezes, watching, innocent and unsure- stopped suddenly in the middle of whatever it was doing.
The only critique i have is actually for the hands- they look a little stiff, uncomfortable- especially the one in the foreground- less natural compared to the rest of the photo- particularly as it looks like they are holding the branches in place- kinda ruins the "spell" of it being caught in the moment, if you get what i mean.
Really beautiful though.
