Composer IV by Andross01 Composer IV by Andross01
Flying balloons in a frame of nothing . . .

. . . Kristin . . .

RAW processed for tones and vignette.

Composer I
Composer II
Composer III

edit: Thanks hesitation for the feature and ritzamarie for suggesting this as a DD! And of course, a big thanks to everyone who has left their comments on the work and added it as a favorite. I'll make sure to make an effort and personally thank everyone - it'll only take a few months ;)

Model is Kristin Wong, and her dA account can be seen here: :icondreamersdisease: ~dreamersdisease

As a note, the frame is REALLY there - my friend (~becauseidothis) bought a frame and painted it red. I went out to this dried up lakebed, stuck it in the ground, and positioned myself to get Kristin inside the frame.

Many thanks again!

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-03-23
With Composer IV by =Andross01 you get two for the price of one! The photograph seems to have two compositions which makes it fun to take apart and see what's going on. ( Suggested by ritzamarie and Featured by hesitation )

the equilibrium of the composition is simply brilliant and the contrast of the ballons wth the environment is a very nice detail. Great photo!

The red frame is a great eyecatcher, so my eyes automaticly focus on it. And then my eyes fall on the colorful balloons. What a sight. Stunning. :wow:
The photo is totally out of balance, but you've done that deliberate and in that case it doesn't matter. It works very well. Great idea, creative, well composed, great color tones and an amazing atmosphere. Really high quality on this photo. Well done! :D
