Critique - Guardians of Illusion by autumn-ethereal
Disclaimer: I am not a trained nor a professional photographer, simply a pair of grey eyes connected to emotions.
In most photographic images I crave information overload, desiring crisp capture and translation of the entire content of the composition within framed exposure. This need within me has waxed and waned over time as my nature and vision have altered with experience.
I long have loved the beauty of overexposure and of chemical burn baths in ancient film processing methods. This photograph delights with its purity of values deployed to create a compositional travel of the eye; and focal point expressions that concentrate the mind. It is elegant in its softness and tactile sensations. The lack of clarity in detail plays directly to its title and that feeling it induces of a dreamlike state in motion.
I have only a small critical commentary, the artist might have better served the intent which I have presupposed for her, by sharpening several different points of rocky protrusion, or cloud cover, to draw the attention in moment in the movement to induce a more transitional experience for the viewer; but that, as is all of what I have stated, is my own impression.
Thank you so very much for posting your work; and requesting critique, I know the metal that alone takes.
I'm in the opinion that *autumn-ethereal knows how to reduce the noise but I don't think that he care's about. It's his style of photos (and I respect that for sure!). I only want to notice that it's to dark and to noisy in my opinion.
