Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-18
Intimate by *DominikKucera ( Suggested by Nilanja and Featured by DpressedSoul )
:icontomnl:
Eye-catching it is this photograph. I like the way that it first appears as a pear, but then you start better looking to see if it it's truly so. And it is. I would like to have it in higher resolution as you want to look close at the details.
Also nice to see it in B&W, makes it more surreal. I'm wondering if I miss some shadows, the light is very soft now. Would like to see another version, but perhaps you've already done that.
I also wonder if the picture would improve if the background had some colour, giving a bit of contrast between the object and its background.
Still, a very nice picture.
What do you think?

:iconariko-yamato:
I don't know if the concept was accidental or intentional, but you've managed to execute something magnificent. You've effectively present the viewer with an ethereal atmosphere while at the also conveying a sensuality as mentioned in the title. That being said, this is not a picture of a nude heavenly goddess, but instead a photograph of a pear.

I'm not particular adept to using cameras, and I'm honestly in the dark when it comes to the majority of the technical aspect of photography and editing. I am however an enjoyer of art, as I always have been and as I always will be, and this very simply styled, but beautiful piece has brightened the better part of my day of viewing, as any wonderful piece should.

As this is a critique I suppose I should attempt to find something that would help you improve. I could have easily posted this in the comments section had I not planned to give my best attempt at refining you somehow.

I think that this deviation may have been more appealing to some people with a a little more colour. As much as that's already over said, I do feel it could have made a big difference for the piece, but only because of it's subject matter. The slight yellow of a pear and the eventual browning that should have happened naturally would have added to the human feel that this naked pair gives off.

Thank you for capturing such a wonderful shot, I will immediately head off to your gallery to see the rest of your works. Keep up the great effort. I will do my best to follow your inevitable success.

Mmm have seen something quite similar on deviantART  (it was a half apple) but can't find it now.
Well, give the link to another piece

This really looks like a photo lithograph/ possibly intaglio print, (props to you :] ) I love how it fades towards the top and how the image itself fools the eye. The texture within the shape is beautiful too.

People keep saying it looks like a vagina.... I'm a self-admitted perv, but the first and only thing I see when I see this photo is a pear. *shrugs* Its a very neat photo, almost looks like a stamp or a super thin slice of the fruit on backlit glass or something. Congrats on the DD :)

why didn't you just tell us in the artist comments what it is? i wouldn't have known it was a pear if i hadn't read it in the comments, other people are saying it. it looked sort of pear-shaped but it could have been anything really, i had no idea what it was because you didn't bother telling us.

oh but it's a pear that looks like a vagina or something wow

um okay that's... interesting i guess?

(lol my pet peeve is when artists post interesting art w/o explaining what it is)

sorry but what you just said has always been a pet peeve of mine. ^__^U because, i don't want to be the one to figure out and interpret the art, i want the artist to communicate a message to me and i don't like when that message is unclear. but i know some people think otherwise...

Using "-i-" means it's a personal opinion of yours, yes. Others will feel otherwise and I am one of those who like to use their imaginations to figure something out and not be spoon fed. I realize my comment may read as negative, but believe me when I say it is not meant that way. :)

:icondominikkucera:
DominikKucera Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Professional Photographer
Well I guess I'm the otherwise-thinker, because the way I communicate the message to you is the art itself. Take a look at the photo and consider: it's definitely a pear, no doubt. But, on the other hand, the title "intimate" makes you doubt: "and what if it's not a pear?"

And, secondly, I didn't bother telling you what is it, for I simply wanted you all to think about it! I wanted to come up with a little controversy and watch you all to think and debate and comment and argue and you did it, you all did it so well. Thank you :)
