Daily Deviation

Given 2014-12-08
By A Static Sea by WishmasterAlchemist has pretty colors and a the artist made a great decision by cropping it into a square format. ( Suggested by k-i-mm-i-e and Featured by MarcosRodriguez )
:iconokarev:
As much as I adore most the work in your gallery, this piece doesn't speak to me as the others do. I started following you because I have a pretty picky taste in macro, and you hit the nail right on the head with your gallery alone, but I wouldn't consider this one of them. And it's only because the noise is slightly too high, and there is much more blur than needed. But I see what you were going for. I would just step back and re-edit a little; The image has more potential than how it was edited.
What do you think?

Thank you for accepting my critique. I apologize it wasn't more on the positive side, as I truly do love following your work, but I felt I had an idea for what could make this image better, and I am happy you were not displeased with my rating.

I believe the critique system was implemented so that we could learn something from each other as artists. People who only want to hear compliments and flatteries about how good their art looks shouldn't enable critiques in the first place. So yeah, I'm conscious that there is a noise issue here and that I could have used the technique better, but since I was mainly testing a filter when I took this photo - and in extreme light conditions - so I really can't complain.
Anyway, I do appreciate both the compliments and negative critiques, because I'm still kind of a newbie in the dSLR world and I can learn from them to improve my photos :)

Well for a newbie at DSLR experience, you have one hell of an eye. I honestly am more interested in your work now knowing that you have just started; I can only imagine what is to come as you start to harness a certain style. c:

Wow, thank you! :blush: I don't have much time for photography now, which is why I'm taking it slow and publishing last year's works from when I started, but I promise I'll do my best to keep up the photo flow =D

It's okay, I am usually the same way; my time is soon to be freeing up so I am investing in the lenses I have wanted for many years, now. c:
I will be doing the same where I will aim to keep up with the photo flow. I guess get at me if you need any ideas for inspiration, vice versa.
