Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #107 'Leaf of Hearts'

in art •  last year

The name of this art photograph is: 'Leaf of Hearts'

Organic biomaterial against a hard metal. A heart-shaped leaf against the rusted cold metal. So different, and yet so bound together by colour. Hot and cold, if you like, but I'd rather stick with a human relationship dimension based on emotions and rationale. A metaphoric presentation of the male-female principle would also be a good vantage point.

Light decreases both from the top and bottom sides, suggesting the curvature of both background elements. Colour is scarce both on top and bottom of the image, whilst the middle is completely dark, providing a superb background to the leaf, which is therefore fully obtruded to the observer. This is the main purpose of the thick dark line from left to right.

The colour scheme works perfectly. Everything is pushed to the analogue warm spectrum. The intense red colour on the leaf is supplemented with the rust orange background. Both of them are enriched with a touch of yellow. A small, almost invisible, amount of green in the dark areas, complements the warm spectrum.

You probably assumed that females are more emotional and therefore the leaf represents them and that the cold rational metal represents males. But, did you notice that petiole hanging there? Things don't always need to be as they seem. :D

Enjoy! :)

Beautiful photos, but I'd still say there are still feminine "male" energy out there.


great post sir

Very beautiful imagination and description of a leaf 💓 really awesome,
Thank you @velimir

Wowo...A passionate photographer can bring "Leaf into Life". :)
A perfect take to showcase the importance of Heart.
After all Trees do have life as well, and Leafs must be there heart! without leafs on stems/brances, tree are mere a Bare wood, no life ! similarly as in humans, without Heart our body is nothing!

This is a picture full of life -- and I do know what You're saying when u describe the spectrum [and the 'warm' colors ].

I did take #ART, so yea I do know what you're saying here ♦♦ Have looked at a Dozen images today on #STEEMIT, & this is in the Top 2 .

Very nice.
Seeing the Autumnal colors makes me recall a poem about it :


And then there's THIS 1, by Diane & Daniel Henderson:


P.S. - I like this remark (quote) by George Eliot on #AUTUMN :

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."



The full spectrum of rust revealed. Splendid stuffery!


hahaha man, always so sharp ;) how d you find the time to read em all? :D


Late nights ;0D

This leaf reflecting a message as every creation of this nature has a emotion.

Thanks for sharing👍

This red is everything, also the shape, wow!!

never knew someone could describe a leaf in this way. Great post.

The texture and colors are incredible. I was fascinated with what you wrote.

This is absolutely gorgeous! What else can I say!!!

180 upvotes to 38 page views.. It's a shame nobody really looked at your work. Maybe they come back to. Interesting though.


The leaf accommodates the metal, and the metal restricts the leaf. Nice post!


Uh, nice thought! :)

I simply love your articles, what great content and quality of posting you offer the community here on Steemit and abroad.

Thanks a lot :)

great post sir
