Multiplicity by alexandre-deschaumes Multiplicity by alexandre-deschaumes
Hello

This is a picture from our last Iceland trip in September.
The light was subtle and lateral almost the whole day .. And the Skaftafell area unveils a crazy land ( floor ? ground ? ) with all the mixed colors .

'Multiplicity' is another work of yours that I absolutely adore.

The use of the foreground to emphasise the glorious alpine flora has been executed in an amazing fashion: each bloom seems so precise and easily discerned, you could almost fool yourself into believing that they alone are the subject in this photograph - the flowers, the soft crumpled plain where there must be hidden streams, pulling crinkles in the land... It's a very peaceful setting, and vibrantly coloured.

Then; then the mountains in the background - the shadows that cause those sharp definition of the ridges and rifts in the faces of the mountains give that extra bit of character to them; they pull attention in, and combined with the sharp contrast of the earth against the snow in the right-hand side of the photograph really help balance for the further back paleness of the mountains on the left.

Overall, I think this image works really well in in portrait format - it allows the use of thirds to be particularly effective in making sure the eye travels around the image in such a fashion that nothing seems overdone or underfocused, and the colours seen in this are beautiful, which really adds a lot to it.
What do you think?

Superbe. Je la trouve mieux que l'autre. Le premier plan est mieux utilisé : le tapis de fleur blanche guide l'œil jusqu'à la montage dans le fond.

This is gorgeous beyond words.

It remind me of "The Wizard of Oz" or, alternatively, "Alice in Wonderland," for some reason. It's lovely.
