Y is for yesternight the little crow escaped by Nilanja Y is for yesternight the little crow escaped by Nilanja
or Ausbruch


Oh this was a lot of work..
I am also writing a little story which refers to this photo. Hopefully I will finish it soon.

I worked on this for hours and when everything was on the right place I couldn't decide which colours to choose. In the end I sticked with rather natural ones, which is pretty uncommon, I think. But I do like it that way. What do you say?

Does anyone dare to write a constructive critique? :nana:

EDIT: here is the story: [link] hope you like it!

Y is for yesternight the little crow escaped is a great example of the hard work and effort that goes into Nilanja's photography. There's a story and a concept behind every creation which serves to inspire those venturing into Conceptual Photography. ( Suggested by BokehLight and Featured by Kaz-D )
I don't need a 100 words to tell you this is amazing...but I shall try.

The expression you wear in this photo is one I feel like I've seen before in your other photos, but i feel like in this photo, you've used it the best. Your eyes stare daggers at me..In this photo, they look capable and your ready for flight (excuse me, getting lost in the world of poetic language ;P) I can only hope that I get as good as capturing moods in photographs as you are.

The feathers are perfect, I wouldn't have changed them.

The background is good, although I've seen you use this color in other photos, or similar shades. This is fine, and the color does suit the photo, but the photo looks too familiar, I think use of a different color background would benefit the effect of the photo. I know you mentioned you struggled over the background color, and that feeling is understandable, but I don't think you hit the right shade. This is just my opinion, and may seem wrong to others, but no matter the color of the background this photo is excellent, and I sure hope that your proud of it. One of your best works so far :dance:
