Daily Deviation

Given 2011-01-18
"I watch him, and am often impressed with his work. This particular piece however, really caught my eye. Technically speaking it is very striking. The focus is fantastic, as is the range of lighting and placement of shadows. Creatively speaking, it is equally magnificent. The subjects appear locked in a lonely dance in the middle of nowhere, which (to me) alludes to a singular focus on one another."

What do you mean by "post"? My images may not be re-posted anywhere else. deviantART has a Share option on the image page that you can use to share it to Facebook, twitter etc, but they are not to be re-posted or re-uploaded anywhere else under any circumstances whatsoever.
Well thats still cool with me, the picture is an exceptional capture and I thought it should be showcased at more at other forums too. What if I was to buy it off of you? I am developing a media website for my media company I am going to have a seperate section for those who have contributed in various ways and means. Am planning put in a slideshow for pictures uploaded by contributors for showcasing their pictures. I can extend a complimentary membership for you for the same.

Sorry mate, it's not for sale. Appreciate the interest though.
Who is the photographer, btw?
FuzzyYak Dec 6, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
That would be me. Why else would I have it in my gallery? :)
I think the shadow does not match the figures here and that is what is captivatingly magical about never seem to pay any attention to the shadow that is casted by something lustful and tempting. I love the marriage of nature and desire here....the small rock is yet stout and stands the ground proudly....casting its real shadow rather than the one that takes away the focus...............I hope I am able to catch the magic or is it my imagination

Thank you very much. It's awesome when people pick up so many little things that they like. :)
Regarding the shadow, is it different or not?
