Dear Scarabuss, I made a drawing in the 2010. I found the reference photo on google. Today I realized you made the original photo. I want you to know my graphite version. I hope you like it and do not want to erase from dA.
If i could i would favorite this a thousand times. If i had the money I would buy it and hang it on my wall. If i had the words i could explain to you how beautiful this picture, and all of your photos, really are. But for now, all i can do is stare and whisper to myself... WOW.
I added this picture to my favorites and wanted to let you know why. I love how distinct the tree branches are silhouetted against the sky. That in contrast to the slight blurriness present of the trunk and of the figure on the swing adds to the idea of wonder which this picture seems to promote. It also gives motion to the picture. The space which the figure is swinging through is such beautiful space, very reminiscent of other galaxies. The huge moon seems to ground the photograph and add perspective to the whole thing. Great job!
I love it! Seems to be loaded with symbolism about our place in the universe. I thought the cloud across the bottom of the moon seemed a little stark. Like the line wasn't quite natural, or not enough fuzziness at the edge, or both. But overall, it is an amazing piece. Thank you!
