Fly fly away.. by `Obsidian-Fox There's not much ro say here. Just brilliant! ( Featured by StamatisGR )
:icongothic-nyu:
I think ~VisualBreak wrote some comments ago how rare such a shot is and I think he is completly right.
Its also rare that I see a photo and are speechless for a second but here I was without words for more than one. I think this photo that is special because its not made, there is no concept behind. It just happend on the street and altough its a "spontaneous" shot in this way it has more depth for me than some photos with a giant concept behind. You didn't construct a situation but caught a short moment of reality in your photo. A real life that is not as colorful as the birds in the background and that makes the viewer think about the situation and about the word "GIVE" in a new way.

I know that critiques should include something critical too but in my eyes you did an excellent job and I dont want to be the one pushing with the finger on technical stuff. Im really touched by your photo and I guess thats all I wanted to say/write :aww:

Wish you a nice day

:iconnightingaleshadow:
I would like to start off by applauding you for such a impactful image! A shot like this is literally worth a thousand words. Not just the word "Give" and how it pertains to the image, but the matching rainbow birds adding to the brightness of the image. The uses of contrast and of line and of color are what make the image emotionally and visually appealing.
That being said there are a few small aspects of the work that could be improved. The image is a little flat and could use just a touch of contrast or brightening coupled with a small amount of sharpening would help the visual impact. Also as the image moves up towards the top seems to gets a little noisy, but I could be seeing.
This work overall is fantastic...The emotional and visual appeal just draws you to this work. Keep in mind that all I can give are suggestions, and regardless you have a beautiful image.
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece!c

Yeah, I agree, brilliant. Beautiful colors, and a nice sentiment to two groups of lives who need help - but I'm going with the man is poor, which I should not assume. Still, very nice photo!

Yes Great photo!!
What a fortunate moment to capture. I am too fortunate to come upon this photo. Thank you
I enjoy accidental masterpieces like this. Every part of this image is skillfully shot. From contrast to alignment, every part seems to have purpose & reason. Even the color, location, and angle of the tree in the center gives strength to this photograph.

Many rare moment are difficult to be aware of, and even more difficult to capture in any medium. But this photo captures more than a moment but a statement of ambiguity. I see many concepts which contrast the meaning. (If there is a meaning). From this I see: natural vs. material, tropical vs. urban, liberty vs. corruption, hope vs. suffering, simple vs. impossible, freedom vs. choiceless, advertised vs. those invisible, and the loved vs. the forgotten.

Thank you Scott for sharing this!! I am still in awe.

good luck to you....
