Daily DeviationGiven 2005-05-02
Lying on my back, looking up into the trees, Touch Things I Don't Feel by =UnicyclistJoe is what I saw. The golden rays of light falling upon, falling through, falling with the green leaves of a tree softly upon the ground around me was a relaxing break from the daily grind, and the dreary days of the winter past.
The sun is coming. Enjoy it while you can.( Featured by sapphiretiger )
I love this photo - I think the composition is amazing, the strength of the limbs of the tree crawling through the frame like veins, the colors of the leaves and the fantastic way you can see the smaller leaves in the background.. it's a very stunning photo. I've often had moments like these where I'll look up into the trees and be completely starstruck by the power and beauty of the sun flowing through the leaves. It leaves me taking a long breath.
they look like aspens...or cottonwoods... lovely trembly leaves in a wind and drippy sweet in sunshines.
Hey dude, congratulations man! Gosh, you've surpassed my pageview and received a daily dev <sniffles> And this is from February...well, that's what I get for being so damn inactive this year huh!
Okay, the photo, yes very vibrant and evocative of warm days and summer <sigh>. It's certainly not summer anymore It doesn't really appeal to me, but who said you had to satisfy everyone!
personaly it's not my thing, but I like the feel
Anyway, about the pic... I've tried to take this sort of picture many times, but it never seems to work out quite right.
BUT i really think this shot is not interesting thats all
tell me, why did you choose this photo ?
"The sun is coming. Enjoy it while you can."
The greens happens to be an added bonus for me, as I drew a parallel between life in a digital green world (dA) and life in the natural world (with plants and of course trees with green leaves and such).
The image here captured a memory that I enjoyed greatly, and embodies an idea that I've long since stood for, being that one should get out and enjoy the natural world. I took a line from his description to include in the writeup too, as that also (in a roundabout way) describes why I like this piece. He went out, and enjoyed nature instead of being cooped up somewhere infront of a computer screen all day.
However, instead of possibly thinking about that or asking me for clarification, people have just decided to get all nasty at this guy, who had nothing to do with being featured past submitting a deviation that I liked. In hindsight, I could have made the writeup a little more clearer, but even so, people's behavior (as usual, it seems) has been shameful.
now if you really enjoyed this photo, okay, its your taste, and i see its the same for a lot of people on da...
but if this photo reminds you a great day you passed, why don't you just faved it, instead of put it in a daily dev?
a daily dev have to be more interesting technicaly etc
"a daily dev have to be more interesting technicaly etc"
...and this is where I point to the FAQ, which explains exactly what a DD is. Frankly you've been nothing but rude and a bit arrogant, so I'll end this here.
FAQ #18: Who selects the Daily Deviation and how is it chosen?
I hope you continue to take photography. This is very stunning!
