Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #150 'Pink Dusk'

in #art3 years ago (edited)

The name of this art photograph is: 'Pink Dusk'

A few days back snow fell and lasted for a day. We were all hoping for a white end of the year but it doesn't appear we'll have one. I found myself basking in this unusual colour of the late afternoon. It is not a usual phenomenon for this part of the world, so I thought it would make a nice photograph. A nostalgic moment is definitely present and will not go away no matter how hard you try to run away from it. After all, it is that time of the year reserved for reflections on the past. Probably on life in general, just as well. A good time to feel thankful and humble for everything.

The pastel hues of pink and violet beautifully flow into each other and, together with low light, create this very beautiful and specific atmosphere. The stretch of pink in the sky is a huge addition to that. A lone lantern above the city and pinkish snow make me feel alone but not in a sad way, more like having some time for myself.

The lantern is also the darkest object in the photo what adds a significant meaning to it. The compositional balance is set between the lantern in the left and the post on the right side. Can you feel the weight of both vertical objects evened out? This is a very important in any art piece, just as life in general, as well.

I love that bluish clouds in the distance appearing as a huge wave rolling in the city :)

Enjoy! :)

Oh. It is a nice photo. I love it.

Oh. Great photo. Thanks for your sharing.

Oh. Cool photo. Thanks for your sharing.

Beautiful picture.

Wooo so calm, serene and peaceful dusk...
When It comes to photography you inspires me...
Whenever I take a photo your photos get in my mind and I feel an inferiority complex....lol
my photography is null compared to yours....but I keep trying just for the sake of art...

No man, you shouldn't feel that way toward anything or anyone. Comparison between people doesn't work at all because each of us is unique and developed himself in a direction of choice. Took me years to get where I am now. Every individual is a book. Write your pages with great care and you will get to where you want to be. The only valid comparison in life is you yesterday with you today.

Peace love and pancakes! :)

By the way, your BW photo of a leaf sprinkled with dew is really good!

Very nice and thought provoking words....Glad to here them...
We only compare to those whom we fancy and are inspired from, to me you are a teacher and every time I take a shot, I try to think about your photos....
Comparing my photos with your's is just my way of improving...I have got so much to learn from you indeed....

Hi @velimir. I like your technique of photography. Lattern is also dark object in this photo. Hence it looks unique and beautiful. superb.

Very glad to hear! @xabi :)

I agree.

be yourself, be a special you - and Merry Christmas.

the atmosphere is really specific, looking at the flashlight creates a sense of loneliness, but soon you realize that this is a deceptive feeling ... the main role in my opinion is played by the background, it is the pinkish-violet background, as if drawn, it creates a charming atmosphere and makes you immerse in it.
thanks, I liked it

yes, you so understood this one! Thank you very much! :)

thanks for your support

I love your interpretation, and here are my two cents - with the addition of the lantern significance I missed and noticed only after reading your interpretation:
Regarding the photo itself - what is most significant to me is that the eye is attracted to the horizon, slides to the right and collides with the black, sharp post - I feel that this effect transmits the uncertainess of life, everything might look pink and happy, but we really can't know what lies underground, silently boiling. The effect of a lantern that is actually the darkest object In the scene in contrast to the horizon amplifies this sensation and also transmits a more optimistic message, it makes ne feel that when one is in hard and black times, the mere thought that there is the opportunity for good things in the future, even in unknown time, like the pink horizon - ungraspable but still there, gives an hope.

Your interpretation is awesome ;)

Thank you. I am really happy I meet you here on steem!

Yes. Street light with pink effect looking amazing. Amazing photo I like it.

Muchas gracias por tu hermoso comentario. Realmente lo aprecio. Eres demasiado bueno. ¡Aclamaciones! :)

Perfectly captured @velimir ! It gives a romantic mood, thank you for sharing this! :)

This original photo looks like a photo taken with a filter. I love when nature gives us surreal images. That is why it is always good to have your camera handy as you never know when the next awesome moment is going to arrive.

An amazingly beautiful scene... So melancholy with the lamp unlit. There's a feeling of nature's dominant cycles with us being just out of sync in our endless hope to adapt or compensate. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, a very nice thought! Many thanks!

I've been spending my time lately curating up and coming photographers, which you are not your beyond that . When I saw this photo this morning I had to give it a vote

Impressive as the light changes when the year dies. Winter certainly has a melancholic beauty. Nice picture!

so true, so true!

@velimir - if you didn't use any filters, this is a very impressive photograph, though it does have a rather sombre or even lonely feel to it..

yes it does!

You do not want to face the wrath of my bunghole!!

I augmented black a little in Photoshop.

that's cool - it's good photography all the same!

After crack comes dusk...ur post always that amazing

"Pink Dusk" is sad and yet so fantastic. :)

Lord Of The Steemit. my favorite author.

lol thank you, you re too kind! :)

Wow, another great one. This one has a feel to it, feels cozy, warm,soft and sweet, like cotton candy. But I bet is was hella cold out there.

it appears so but it wasn't really that cold :D

Being used to the warm weather, when it is 4cº outside like now, I complain alot about my life. Seeing snow,even if in pictures scares the hell out of me. :D

The coolest of your work! The top of perfection! Very calm and quiet street, it's good to be there and be alone with your thoughts.

Hi i've got to say when i saw that photography, look so perfect i dont know if it's effects or something of photoshop but look so warm and chill that makes want to be there

Beautiful....I recently read a book where in that world it snowed pink..this reminded me of that beautiful fantasy world

Good one. Well done.

You killed it @velimir. The shot is precise, beautiful and speaks volume.

Beautiful composition! It’s not just the image, but discussing your content really adds to the experience.

Nice shot, cant imagine snow in #Florida like this, but it feels like spring time/fall around here currently! #HappyHolidays

Amazing! Now, I am inspired to create a blog post about photography. I need to showcase them later on. Thanks for the inspiration.

I have written masterpieces on the walls of my own cave, written them in blood from one hundred strikes of my wrathful fists. My own symphonies of sound and color and passion will never be acknowledged by the ones who came before me.

We might have been joined in lush harmonies.
