Bird of Spring

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Like butterfly she is
...Whispering to the breeze
Early morning cheerful kiss
Shall try her wing and please
On to colors of the sky
Bird of the green spring
Fly on and fly on high
Let your heart to your mood sing

All days have been calling
To reach your goal days
As night and night are falling
You’ll have your winged ways
For love is in your hair
And the eyes that ask for touch
To reach an affection and care
In Venus of love so much

Like butterfly a dream
In natures own color symphony
In the rivers of fervor stream
Each stroke is forever and free
A day again turns to night
And fantasies of love begin
Bird of Spring in her flight
Touches her passion within

Overall this artist has created an unmistakable eye-catching photograph. I enjoy the fact that she is rising out of the grass, and the vignette effect is just simply amazing. The expression on her face is somewhat intimidating, an expression of confidence and power, a touch that I absolutely love, since she is in a middle of an empty field. The lighting is beautiful and the focus and depth is AWESOME! :) I love her outfit, and after staring for a while, I realize that it kind of remindes me of an Alice in Wonderland and Ariel (from the Little Mermaid) mix. It is awefully beautiful. WONDERFUL piece of artwork! I absolutely adore your photographs after just 5 minutes of scrolling through your deviations!

Why do I like this picture enough to stare at is so much? I think I figured it out. Her beautiful pose there really creates such nice lines around her. Like this piece is begging to be an inked pencil drawing. It would have such lovely and easy lines outlining her.

Stunning photograph and what a stunning model as well. She has such a beautiful body! I like the fact that you used a model that is not bone skinny.

I stumbled upon this picture from your daily deviation (A Fairy's Dream) and I like it so much that I wanted to critique it. Unfortunately, critiques require a premium membership...I don't understand why such an integral feature wouldn't be open to everyone, but that's another story.

First of all - this picture is captivating at first sight. Everything that you've done works together to create a wholly coherent wow factor (including your choice of model - she's got her own wow factor).

Looking at it further, I gotta say - dude, your depth of field in this shot is perfect. I'm no photographer, but I know it when I see it, and you picked the right settings for this photo. Your depth of field, combined with the burning at the edges of the photo, create a soft focus effect that draws your eye to your focal point - very well done!

Building upon that, the focus on your model is really crisp. Surprisingly so, in fact. Thinking about it, maybe it's not that the model is crisp - maybe it's that everything else isn't? Subtle, yet so effective.

Additionally, the way you shot this, the grass creates a texture that draws your eye upwards towards her torso - every detail about this composition is an exercise in viewer focus, and you've done an excellent job of it.

Finally, as everyone else has said, the colors here are very vibrant - quite nice. Nice use of primary color - her skin and hair really stand out.

I wish I had some type of constructive criticism or something, since you requested critique to help you as an artist...but I don't. Keep it up, man.
