Supernatural - Lion Heart by l8 Supernatural - Lion Heart by l8
Title:
Supernatural - Lion Heart
(Wallpaper Version)


Comment:
A Dandelion Seed Head. The natural turned supernatural. A macro shot of one of natures wonders but with a twist of artistic licence. If you're wondering about the name I've called them there mostly the names of molecules. I was struggling on the names so I turned to Google and the rest is history :D

Critique by thebigG2005 May 2, 2009, 12:09:00 PM
Here goes my first critique.
Overall it has a wonderful contrast with the stunning reds, mixed with the almost ghost like whites and greys of the seed head.

The depth of field is very good, it enhances the whole dandelion head, making it stand out. It grabs your attention. Sitting in my message centre it shines out a red beacon at sea.

A wonderful technique too, the change in colours makes it seem like a futuristic discovery program shot.

The title "lion heart" seems to be an ideal choice as you can almost make out a heart shape in the seed head. I know its incredibly hard to control how many seeds stay on the head, but the left side seems a little light of seeds, if it had more in certain areas the heart shape would have really grabbed you attention.

My last point is maybe if the red seed heads were slightly transparent, it would look cool, and add to the science feel of this piece.

Once again l8, you have delivered a stunning deviation. Well done. :thumbsup:

I love how you have used the complimentary colours of the red and green-blue. Although being a tertiary blue it really brings out the red as the foreground, rather than taking away from the focal point. :D

nice work :)

Even my hubby was taken back by this one ... he didn't believe it was a dandelion. With these red colours I'd have to vote for this one to be December. Keep up the amazing work :worship: :clap: :hug:

That looks absolutely insane. What drew me first were the reds, very striking against the subtle teals in the background and thus conveying somewhat of an underwater feel... and my goodness, the pods. Feels as though any second a mass of little tadpole-like creatures would burst right through them collectively.

Very cool :nod:

Thanks Katie that's an interesting take on the image and one I had not seen in it before.
To be honest the red and teal colours when I first used used them, didn't sit well with me at all but over time I warmed to the effect and I'm glad I stuck with it.
