:ohmygod: how do you do it shawn? this is such a moving shot. just when i think i know your photography, i end up seeing this among others, and i'm right back to knowing nothing at all. :no: that's the mystery i suppose?

:boggle: i cannot wrap my head around the lighting and then the darkening effect in this photo... it's so heavenly. if i had even a drop of your imagination and your eye for impeccable detail... :faint:

This is a lovely, powerful piece.
With the light to one side, and the darkness to the other I almost feel like the person has a choice...or they could just sit a moment and decide. :)
I really like this.
Oh, and that is a beautiful tree.

I love the concept and the execution of this piece. As a personal choice, i would have made the colors brighter, but that's just me. the mellow colors adds a nice mood to the photograph. Very beautiful

That book was so odd but interesting. I love how you captured the child's outlined silhouette under the big tree. It's so gorgeous and evoking.

Very cool. I like how the low saturation seems to be a transition between the grey world and the colorful world of the Giver.

Incidentally, I really enjoyed that book.

this feels... eerie.
probably because my memories of that book weren't so great... TT_TT

but it is a good eerie feeling.

Sorry, but I do not think that can post a Critique on your Artwork... I don't speak English well enough and don't know enough about photography.
However, I found this photo absolutely wonderful... The colors, the light, the person, the decor ... To believe that these elements have always been waiting for one thing: to be gathered by you.
Again sorry for my bad English ...
