Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-06
SeparateFromTheHead captures a truly profound concept full of many different meanings, while the excellent framing with the particular positioning at an angle contributes to a sense of disturbance in Bloodflowers. ( Featured by 3wyl )

I feel that a little more blood smears, gore, or evidence of scarring on the model's body would have given this photo more of an impact. The diminution in the overall potency of this photo is evidenced by the carefully-placed blood splatters that are just too soft and lacking in rawness. The color tones are a bit off and there does not seem to be enough brightness/ contrast to give life to the photo. I also feel that the white sheet in the background blurs out the model in the foreground; this could be remedied with a sheet that is contrasting in color (such as red or burgundy). I am not a professional photographer but this photo seems to be lacking something and I am just brainstorming some suggestions. This photo is nice, but I do not think it should be featured as a Daily Deviation, as the look and feel of it is inauthentic. However, I think there are plenty of other photos in your gallery that could have been featured instead. ;)

I like that you're offering some well-meaning constructive criticism. But just so you're aware, it's not up to the artist what gets featured as a Daily Deviation, so telling them you think something else in their gallery would have been better suited for it is meaningless :)

Yes, I am aware of that. I am just pointing out the obvious: that there is room for improvement here, and that there are far better deviations in this artist's gallery that have the potential to be featured as DDs. One should not operate under the assumption that just because a deviation gets featured, it is of some outstanding caliber. That is not the case here, and I blame whoever awarded the DD for not taking into consideration the other deviations in this artist's gallery. Evidently my commentary was misconstrued as 'meaningless' when it was meant as a subtle tip of the hat to the artist as well as an encouragement to make improvements to future deviations and not let the euphoria of being awarded a DD get the better of her.

Also, as a reminder, I would like to point out that just because someone else gets to call the shots when it comes to awarding DDs, the opinions of other artists should not be discounted, as more often than not the people who are doling out these DDs like lottery tickets do not have a lot of acumen when it comes to judging the aesthetics of deviations. They are told to find something that looks interesting at face value in order to meet a quota of DDs and to draw attention to a particular subject of art. They do not have 'final say' over what constitutes a good deviation, by any means, as art is subjective, based on a multitude of personal interpretations of aesthetics which the fellow artists of deviantART have a right to voice. There is no such thing as a meaningless opinion on DA. But again, I am just pointing out the obvious. ;)

Thank you very much for your criticism, although if I followed your suggestions and make blood-splatters, contrast, colours etc. in your way it would be just completely different picture (I meant this photo to be rather delicate than raw) ;)  Anyway, "brainstorming some suggestions" is always helpful to the artist and your comment is not meaningless at all :)  Don't worry, euphoria caused by being awarded a DD is not that big that it would get the better of me :D Cheers!

I am pretty sure Silens is fully aware that the artist does not have a choice in the matter of Daily Deviations, Silens simply stated that there are better pieces in the artists gallery. As she did state 'Featured' instead of something along the lines of 'you should have chosen...'.

Wow, didn't even notice the background for a sec!  Thought it was simply flowers with a bit of blood.  Awesome shot.
