Hello! I love your photography. Your camera angles as well as your subject matter are very simple, but elegant. It is rare when a photographer's personality shines through their work, but I see yours here.

However, light could have been utilised better in your ornament photographs. They seem rather stilted without dimension and shadow that light can give to objects.

Your pictures are very commercial, and do not take this as a bad thing, simply that they're very appealing in a very uncomplicated way.

Great Work,
Sputnik

Hey Crimsona~

I'm just here to say that I love your photographs. They're really beautiful and I love all of them. Though, I would have to say that my favourite is the first one. The captions that you've given suit the pictures very well.

Just one thing, though. I'm not a very good photographer, but I think you could have taken the picture of the yellow flowers from a different angle. It might look a little brighter that way.

Besides that, I really liked these photos! :D

The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time.
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus.
If I were to pluck on your heart strings would you strum on mine?

Thank you both for your feedback! I do agree with you Sputnik, the lighting could have been better. And HPR you're right about the yellow flowers, they're quite dark and a little blurry which probably could be improved upon! (Oh dear, seems I really need to work on my lighting!)

Thanks again!

Hey Crimsona,

Wow -- I absolutely love these! You use such lovely subjects, backgrounds, colours, angles -- everything. My favourite is probably the one of the blue flowers. It's true that photographs of flowers can sometimes get a little dull -- but this one isn't at all. I just love the angle you've chosen, and the way the flowers at the front are so in focus, while the slightly less-in-focus flowers behind create such a lovely contrast and background. The colour is lovely, too.

The first photograph is lovely. I love the contrast of the red sequin heart against the denim. Also, it's quite a unique photo -- I've never really seen anything like it before! I do, however, think that this picture might look a bit nicer if it was a tiny bit brighter -- if you'd experimented with the light you were taking it in a little more.

In the second picture, again, the colours are so lovely! The angle is wonderful, and again I love the way you've focused the camera on the ornament on the side. The glitter on the surface also helps makes the picture a beautiful and unique one. It adds interest, but doesn't distract too much from the main subject.

I also love the third picture, but I have to say that I prefer the second one to it. I think it's just the angle, to be honest -- although the angle in the third one is also interesting, I just prefer the way you've focused on a single one in the second photograph.

The fifth picture is lovely too, but I don't think you've made quite as good use of the angle and lighting in it as you have in the other pictures. As others have mentioned the light could certainly be a little better, and the angle could be experimented with a bit. The out of focus flowers in the background of this one bother me just a little for some reason. Still, it's a lovely photograph.

The last photograph is beautiful. It's such a unique angle and a lovely picture to look at. It's also a very seasonal, wintry photograph -- the colours are so icy. I absolutely love the colours you've used.

Overall -- wow! These are absolutely amazing. Definitely keep taking photographs! My only suggestions would be to try experimenting with the angles and lighting especially even more than you already have done. These are amazing, and you can only get better. :)

Hey Crimsona!
First of all I can't see Hidden Depths or Life Long Sleep for some reason :/ so I'm bummed about that. SO besides those two I love your pictures! My favorite is a Meeting Concerning Christmas.
