Description

:bulletred: Revelation, talent and love :heart:

While taking this photo I imagined how Antonio Vivaldi came up with the music for his four seasons.


This is the music I'm banned from hearing.

:bulletblack: The other side.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-09-14
I was surprised to discover that this artist had not been recognized with a Daily Deviation before now - an incredible gallery, beautiful works, and this piece is no exception.
Vivaldi's Autumn Dream by =Alexandru1988 ( Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconvastatuuli:
I'm always delighted when I see masterpieces shot with the same camera model that I use. It gives me hope of once achieving similar results and reminds me that skill is in the person, not the device. This photo is an excellent example of that.

The vibrant, yet earthy colours of the image stick out on the screen. The colour harmony is flawless and each shade compliments the others. There's enough contrast to give the strong shapes a certain firmness, but it isn't the whole point. I love how the artist has combined the curving edges of the instrument with a rough, natural leaf that seems to fit right in on the wooden surface. The instrument alone is already an interesting object - not only because of all the emotions music can convey, but also because of the contrast of the round shapes with some extremely straight lines. The atmosphere is completed with one more texture, namely that of the fabric underneath the instrument. Bringing together so many different, rich materials creates an air of luxury and fascination.

From the placing of the leaf to the angle of the instrument and direction of the straight lines, the composition looks so well thought out that I have nothing to critique on there. Technically the photo is also superb, if you excuse the slight grain in the upper part like I do, as it fits into the feeling of sensing something graciously old and cherished. The focus is right where it should be, on the leaf, leaving other parts calmly blurred. I find the light to be very suitable for this shot, not too dark or too bright. Clearly a well-planned piece of art!

Whenever I see a photo of a violin, it always reminds me of red wine. There's this cozy feeling of the warm red tones from the wood to craft such a beautiful instrument. The maple leaf also makes a great touch to the photo :)

Ah, the violin. You did a fantastic job - the lighting is superb - and the leaf added a lot of history to it.
I used to play orchestra as a viola player so seeing the violin reminds me of concerts and sight reading.
Do you play?
