Daily Deviation

Given 2013-08-21
Insomnia by *fogke shows at first glance, normality, but with a closer look there is a certain depth and emotion captured in this great shot. ( Suggested by Savaliste and Featured by Kaz-D )

This photo really caught my eye. You have a really unique style of photography and editing as well.

Let me start with the composition. The crop you chose was just right to fit this picture, as well as the position of the person walking down the stairs. Mostly I think a square crop empowers the composition, and in this case it is proven once again.

What also caught my attention was the slight red glow over the back wall complementing his red shoes. Usually I don't really like unnatural editing or blurring, but in this case - also looking at the title - it fits perfectly (which it also does in other photos in your gallery). The way this person seems to be standing still but moving at the same time gives more power to the subject.

Overall, very well done!

I think this photo is very impressive. The idea is really nice, editing is very original as well. I really like the position of this guy on the picture, it shows that the shot was spontaneous. At least it makes me think so. That makes the picture look more realistic. Also I like the blurry background. The focus is just right. It helps to pay attention at the main object. And square crop really improves the photo. I like the colors on this picture because they kind of explain the title. Very neat. I don't have that much to say because it's just perfectly done.

I love how crisp the "center" half of the image is in comparison to the rest. The blur is much more prominent towards the edges and does a nice job of isolating the subject and their designated path. It's is also nice how you managed to capture the size of the subject in comparison to their surroundings by including just a little bit more of the steps on either side.

He is isolated by blurnes... Gives it a minimal feel.  Great color, accent with the red shoes.
Overexposure on the left steps do form a white space. Lower steps needed some more contrast. But then again the only lines that are visible lead to the model. All eyes are on him.

Wow, what a great shot! I love the composition of this one. Those three vertical lines on the left are so important. Luckily that wall wasn't without that feature. I mean, as a painter, I can ad stuff like that. But as a photographer you're at the mercy of reality. Nice work!
