Loneliness by MarcoHeisler Loneliness by MarcoHeisler

Being apart and lonely is like rain.
It climbs toward evening from the ocean plains;
from flat places, rolling and remote, it climbs
to heaven, which is its old abode.
And only when leaving heaven drops upon the city.

It rains down on us in those twittering
hours when the streets turn their faces to the dawn,
and when two bodies who have found nothing,
dissapointed and depressed, roll over;
and when two people who despise eachother
have to sleep together in one bed-

that is when loneliness receives the rivers...

Rainer Maria Rilke

Before I get started, I love this. :)

Vision: I actually don't think there is one bad thing about this, but I'm going to critique it anyway. I think it is actually beautiful. As the title suggests, the picture makes me get a sense of lonliness, but the beautiful colour makes me feel happy, so it kind of makes... happy lonliness? And the colour of the flower definitley gives a feeling of summer, while the purple undertones in the background keep it from being too 'in your face'. Perfect.

Originality: I have not seen a picture like this one recently. It is most definitley new, and considering the colours in this and the time of year now, it is an extreemly fresh peice. Seeing it in full view surprises me with the intensity of the colours and detail. Perhaps another shot a little closer up would have been nice?

Technique: I love the way that it is not 'boring' and the flower is placed in the center of the page. I love that you have gone one step further by changing positions, and the way that just doing this can completley change the shot.

Impact: It most certainly blows my mind. As to what emotions I feel when I see it... I'm not sure. There are certainly strong, positive emotions I get from it, but I'm not exactly sure what they are. Whatever they are, this is an amazing shot.

Absolutley, mind-blowingly, face-meltingly, beautifully amazing.
What do you think?

Oops, my mistake.
Happened to overlook it :( Sorry.

I think it's a very nice shot.
I like the general warm gamma and the intricate detail of the background. The composition is arranged beautifully.

Nice one, indeed :heart:
And... I forgot about the poem! It's beautiful.

Doesn't look very lonely to me TBH, but it is a lovely flower pic- nice composition, cool colours in the backround, good focus on the flower itself.

Nice work! :D

It could be worse, though. It is not that bad a title. And the image is the main thing and that is ace, so don't worry! ^^

beautifully composed. well adjusted colors. Although background is lil dull for me, but the blurry effect keeps it fine.

Hast du toll hinbekommen! :clap: Ich hab immer so ein Problem Gelb abzulichten.
Klasse Schärfe und toller Farbkontrast zwischen dem Hintergrund und der Blume.

Ja, gelb ist auch sehr schwer zu fotografieren,
das ist fast wie weiß und man läuft ständig Gefahr es überzubelichten.
War auch hier fast so, aber Photoshop hat etwas geholfen,
dank selektiver Helligkeit & Kontrast. :)
