NOIR SANS TITRE by ekud NOIR SANS TITRE by ekud
NOIR SANS TITRE...

Produced for depthCORE XXXV - 'NOIR'.

Detailed simplicity. Canon 400D; Melbourne.

Comments are (as always!) very much appreciated, but I'm really not looking for technical pointers - I'm much more interested in your thoughts and impressions of this as a piece of artwork.

Upon first inspection this appeared to be shadows on the ground. That's pretty cool. I like it. This makes me want to go outside and take pictures, even though it's night, probably raining, and the middle of winter.

Quite stunning at first glance. The intricacy of this piece is quite vivid and the contrast is like getting your eyes punched in and then back out... can't describe it really. I can't imagine how this might look with color, or imagine how you'd approach it with color... it's one of those mysteries that might never get solved.

Oh the beauty of simple-colored pieces... some people don't understand why I like things like that. But I think this is a great example of the beauty that can come with it!

When you look, and I mean really look, at this particular shot, you can see so many shades! Yes, you get this with color, but it's not as moving for me. All I can do with something like this is just stop and look, letting the piece sink into my mind, and feel. I feel cool winds blowing at the edges of my jacket, while the sun lends a feeling of subtle warmth to my upturned face.

Anyway, sorry to be so verbose-- simply put, I love it. :)

This gives me the feeling of a cold pretty day.
One of those when the air is crisp, it's gorgeous and the sun is out, but it's cold and you just want to take a long walk in the park and go to the cafe and buy some hot chocolate.
The colors make it feel like something beautiful growing out of something dark and foreboding, like unexpected coming out of something...
Like spring! One day it's bare and empty and the next POOF! Blossoms everywhere. =]]

Thanks for sharing.

It reminds me to blood flowing through veins...
It is difficult for me to look at it without staring at it because of the strong contrasts.
It seems to be that the photograph is not in its original angle, if you understand, what I mean.
Left is bodom, right is the top of the tree.
I'm looking at it for 20 minutes and the longer I look at it , the more I do like it :)

Is this a photo, or digital? if it is a photo, it is a good one, if it is digital art, it is one of the best digital trees I have seen in a long time.

great photo, but i think the left side of the picture (as long as i can deduce, at the right was the sun) it's a bit too dark for this piece... in colours maybe look awesome, but in b/w i think it needs a bit more of light...

:/ ignore me, i'm a amateur photographer XDD

makes me feel like lost in a forest, in both ways: good for the flowers and the nature touch, and afraid because the bits of dark given by the numerous tree branches

IMHO full view is too large and the small view too small to get a really good idea of the composition. I do think that the rectangular horizontality (heh) , combined with the sideways branches causes the focus to not encompass the piece as a whole. To correct this maybe a more square format would offset the horizontal tendency.

Though I love the black and white nature of your work, I would also like to see this in color. In the areas where the shades are similar, it would set off the branch from the blue.

Actually, by "technical pointers" I assumed you meant something involving the camera. My comments were more matters of aesthetics. So sorry if I misunderstood.

Perhaps you would share it with us. :)

I can't really tell what is the emotion I get when I see this... It sort of tears me in two: half of me gets scared at the site of the long, black branches, but the other half gets swept away in the small, cute little flowers and the soft light.....

I wish I could be at the site where the picture was taken to see it for real :heart:

It's a well taken photo, I can't seem to take it in all at once though a bit overwhelming for me heh.

Can you tell me about the name of this work? I mean the inspiration behind it, and what it means?

Good work.

i'm sorry, but this is the first piece of your work i don't like. it looks okay as a thumbnail, but in fullscreen mode it looks kinda cheap.
some noise-reduction might help, but it has to much single forms are competing to much with each other. (sorry my english isn't really good, but i hope you understan what i mean)

Looks amazing. I really love how it looks. I think that it's great that you took a normal scene and helped develop it into what it could become.
