I also love how the sun comes into the picture, perfectly big, and shines down at the landscape. The tree, closest to the camera, the house, and the stairs, are giving the photo a three-dimensional look, which is what actually makes this one of the best works I've seen for today.
The only tiny thing I would think of, that could make this picture even better, would be if I saw more of the stairs to the left. Because right now, I'm not sure if it's really stairs, or if it's just a random plank that the photographer forgot to remove from the picture before putting it out on Deviant. If a little bigger part of the stairs was included, it would feels like a natural part of the picture, like it was ment to be there, and it would tell a story, instead of being in the way. That would be perfect.
But I love what I'm seeing, and that's why I choosed to write a critique on this, which I'm not doing very often these days.
great sun, great light, great place, great photo
It's stunning in a way that defies, and leaves me pondering life. The beauty and the ugliness. Brilliantly strange, and strangely brilliant. Bravo.
Very, very nice
