About the Image(s)

This month I was interested in playing with color, atmosphere and abstract ideas. It's hard to describe the process as I did a lot of layer masks with layer adjustments to create a pleasing blend. Not sure where to take this image so I'm posting it here for the group's feedback.

Are you looking for a Freudian viewpoint here? You certainly have 2 beautifully blended eyes emerging from a menacing forest, and the phallic symbol is a bit too obvious. Of course, there is the image itself without Freud's interpretation and that is a face with a nose and a mouth. The image is successful as it is open to interpretation, but personally, I prefer my phallic symbols more subtle.   Posted: 06/03/2021 10:16:26

A wonderful play of shapes and colors. It is up to the viewer
to interpret it in different ways.   Posted: 06/11/2021 12:53:49

"Color, atmosphere and abstract ideas"

You certainly did that. The muted greens & the tall tress set the atmosphere while the bright greens make the subject pop. I like how you've blurred the bottom corners but not the top to maintain the background.   Posted: 06/15/2021 08:29:07

This is great Brad!! Bravo! I think you're onto something with these "slightly human" oddities.
I would love to see the top trees recede into the background and the focus stay more sharply on the top of the flowers as if you're taking the photo beneath the object.
Try giving the flowers some more human traits. There's a story waiting to happen!   Posted: 06/18/2021 16:39:01
