Its a glorious shot M8. I have no criticism just admiration for the foto. I would say the title in English would be Foot Prints. The plural comes at the end of prints and not foot! Suprised no-one has pointed this out but then I am a bit anal!
Well I'm back like I said I would be! So I'm not really sure where to start with this, but let me try...
I really love this photo and fell in love with it when I first saw it as a thumbnail. What captured my attention the most was how fantastic the sky looked and the amazing colours - there's such an awesome blend and the cloud formations are great as well. The water is lovely and it almost looks like ice with perfect colours reflected on it. I personally like the composition and think it works well. The foot prints are a lovely addition and really enhance the mood and atmosphere. It's very peaceful looking.
I don't really want to complicate things for you, but I feel like it's always good to say what's on your mind. I saw this with a black border and I much prefered it. I think because the colours are dark they better suited it. But I'm glad you removed the fancy frame you had on it because I don't think it went well. As for the font, I think you need something a little more simple, and clean. Maybe fonts like Book Antiqua, Calisto, Century Gothic etc. I think they would work better.
But other than that, it's a lovely photo and you've done so well to capture it. Good work!
I was waiting for a comment like this !!!! Your are saving my life!!!! I think this is the last edit.... The black border is definitely the better border because of the darkness of the picture. The font is aslo the best one I've trayed!! thanx to you !!! (I put Book Antiqua as you recommend me !! thanx!!! ) I'm so happy for your feedback !!! I know that you are surely quite busy answering to all yours messages!! thanx very much darling!!! !!!!
I'm glad you like this photo !!!
Alan, I saw this on one of my friend's page, and jumped on over to comment on it myself. The picture itself is gorgeous. It really left me breathless. I think it was the sky that grabbed my attention right away. That splash of pink combined with the dark puffy clouds gives it a dark yet heavenly look. Then my eyes traveled down to the water which is just so soothing and perfect. Great management of the shutter to catch it like that. It so smooth it almost looks like glass. Finally, the footprints add the finishing touch to this picture. It captivates the mood. Really, really brilliant.
I do have a couple of pieces of constructive criticism to offer. I think it would've been nicer, as someone else had mentioned, if you widened the scope of the picture and included more of the scene and particularly the beach/footprints. Just a tad more. I know several people have said they liked the border work, but I'm the opposite. I think the thick white line distracts from the beautiful picture as do all the footprints. It's creative yes, but the picture alone is enough to look at. The title is a little off-centered too (happens to me all the time too )
Bordering aside, this piece is really stunning, and for that reason, it's going into my favs. Keep it up
I really appreciate your comment !!! I'm very glad you like it !!! And your description is just perfect !!!!! I totaly agree with u with the criticism!! because I don't really the border too !! I just put it to change a little bit my style !!! but it fake !!! !! So I've change the border !! I hope you will like it !!!!!!! But I'm still not happy with the font !!! I'm not really happy!!!
I you have others criticism to make in my gallery, they will be very welcome !!!!!!!! By the way your work is just fantastic!!!!! keep it up !!! I love your montages!!! I will submit in a few weeks some montages I've made !!!
Sorry if my replay is not long !!! I'm not really good in English !!!
PS: I don't really understand " if you widened the scope of the picture and included more of the scene and particularly the beach/footprints" ....But I can't include more the scene of the footprints because this is the end of the picture!
The comment was absolutely my pleasure to write. The real thanks go to you for sharing the picture. I looked I your improvements. It's SO much better in my opinion because I can focus on the picture now. I'd still pick a different font too, but overall, it looks much better already. I'm curious, did you try this with a white border? How did that look? I think I would've tried white first.
Don't apologize for your English. You speak it just fine, my friend
Oh, that last suggestion was only helpful if you had cropped the picture. Since you didn't, there's no way to make any changes. Don't worry about it. It's minor.
I looked up Calendonia and is it by Vanuatu? I've seen pictures of Vanuatu and Caledonia looks equally beautiful. I may just have to come visit you and your beautiful island one day
hauhauhau !! yes, I'm maybe quite excited !! I like to change it in order make it better !! I agree with you, It look So much better know!!! But there is still the problem of the font.... I've 1000 fonts but I still havn't found the one I looking for!! ... What's the name of the font you used on " " It looks appropiate for this picture !!!
Humm I've tryed with a white border . It also looks grate but we will have the same problem as with the foot prints border, since the photo itself is quite dark and with a white border there will be more contrast ( that mean more dictraction). I always work with b& w borders and I use to put a white border with a clear photo and black border with.... But I will still temporarily submit it with a white border and see the opinions....
Yes New Caledonia Is between Australia and Vanautu....But I'n my opinion is not the ultimate paradise !! Of course is beautiful but...I don't really like it ....However I can recomend you Venezuela !!! For me, it's one of the must wonderful places on earth ! and also New Zealand !! I'm actualy living there !! Or if you want some tropical paradise, there is Palau Rarotonga hawaii... But there is a lot a places to go !!! the world is so beautiful !!
