waking autumn's soul by Nilanja waking autumn's soul by Nilanja
I guess I like autumn too^^ Above all the many colourful leaves :iconautumnplz:
Taking this photo was actually very uncomfortable and exhausting...I was hanging headfirst over a couch which hurt a lot and gave me headache for a few minutes ._.
Buuuuuuut I really like the outcome so it was all worth it!

the photo looks much better on flickr --> [link]
normally I don't see any difference but now I do...

EDIT: I have changed the colour of the nailpolish...

One word : Earthly. Ok, other words...
A photography which "pulls from above".
It's conceptual, as always in your work. This is what I expect about Art, when I look it : show the essence of things rather than the things themselves - even.
The arm makes me think of a piece of armor. It gives a warlike side to this back and these fragile bare arms.
This armored arm which conquered the summer, a personification of a kind of goddess of nature, which you interprets here, as Artemis for example.
Esoteric position of hands could be a chamanic sign intended for only ones.
I cross the beauty of picture and blameless technique, always guide by an instinct of effectiveness and beauty in your work, and I congratulate your talent, again!
What do you think?

I love this one. I love how orange is the only colour which really makes it pop and strengthens your concept. I love the model's pose -- so enlightening.

Toll. Gefällt mir sehr gut, vor allem weil die "Herbstseele" selbst wie Laub von den Bäumen zu fallen scheint. ^^

Im übrigen sehen die Bilder bei deviantART immer besser aus, wenn man sie selbst auf die gewünschte Größe bringt. Überlässt Du es dA, Deine Bilder zu verkleinern so erscheinen sie oft etwas unscharf.

I really like how the light falls, I love the leaves, it makes a nice autumn feel, but in more unique way I feel, most photos I have seen of autumn/fall, has all the trees with orange leaves, close up on the leaves.

I can imagine how many headaches might have given. because of the blood going to the head or something, can't remember much from biology class >_<

This is great...but maybe the nail polish a different color? I understand the contrast, but i think another color would work better.

Very interesting and nicely done.
In my opinion it only would have been better with a different/no nailpolish.

yeah I thought about the nail polish too...but in the end - as you can see- I left it that way..a contrast to the orange
