Daily Deviation

Given 2012-09-08
:iconhoursuponhours:
This piece of art is very unique. I've seen ones with the same style, but I've never seen one portraying the same message in the same way. The way the picture looks overall, I also like. The positions of the man, computer, and even the paper in the fields is great. I even like (though this may seen like an irrelevant point) the fact that the paper is covering his face. I guess what I mean by that is that it's a great image(that's supported by the positioning), and a powerful message that I think people enjoy seeing. Sanctuary also, I think, is a good title to pull it all together. Sometimes we just need to breathe; and this is a wonderful portrayal of that!
What do you think?

I adore this piece of art. :) It's very...meaningful and...wow. Words cannot describe this.

The papers flying everywhere also gives it wonderful effect. Bravo on that, as well. The background's cool. Now, the lighting, bloody marvelous.

I'm no good critique, but please accept this.

The plants add good detail, too. Awesome sauce. The clouds are really pretty, the blend with the sunlight wonderfully. This plain is so...wow. I love it, worship it, really.

There's tons and tons of trees. But they don't take all the space. THAT'S A GOOD THING!

Haha. c:

I love this. All of it. I'm in absolute astonishment. Wonderful work. :D

Great composition!
Has a feeling of a business guy really going to a vacation on nature and forgetting totally about the work, so the papers are flying, like the business have been trow into air, and computer has just been thrown out and will be turned off for quite some time.
The papers not showing his face makes you focus on what it could represent, the picture as a whole, not only highliting the model and giving him all the attention.
You mixed some shots together?
The lightning is amazing, the sun's light, making things a lot light, make it alives, amazing!

I love it... nowhere does it say, and no one has asked, if this is photomanipulated- is this entirely 'live'?

A striking message- the sad truth, or maybe a message about the environment... makes me, as a viewer, to stop and think awhile!

I got a different meaning for this one, hehehe.....
sometimes i get this feeling when i'm at my work desk with stacks of folders and piles of paper to read and a report waiting to be typed and sent A.S.A.P. It would be nice if we could transport ourselves to a place with no care and just exhale all our problems away. But then again, that's what the mind's for. daydreaming time! :)) thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of art! congrats on the DD and the spectacular reviews and ratings!

Think about it. There's a man dressed in a business suit, with computers and other technology surrounding him, though he's outside. He is oblivious to the nature that surrounds him because he is caught up in work all the time.
