Daily Deviation

Given 2010-07-03
Life Cycle by *eKBS
The suggester writes: "This wonderful piece describes life in an easy but very interesting way. Nice concept, great execution." ( Suggested by BillyTheKid-90 and Featured by Shalora )
:iconfelipechoque:
It's a really universal and understandable idea, very well executed in technical terms, and visually very appealing thanks to the great contrast in lightning.
My only "obstacle" with the representation of the concept, is the final stage, where we appear as "suddenly burnt".
Personally, i think it'd be perfect if you showed, as we reach maturity, how we can reach our maximum potential and "light ourselves", until we consume and die. A lighted match in the middle, consuming itself to the end, would have been a perfect metaphor for a well lived life :D
But i imagine it'd have required another type of technique, a different procedure, setup, etc; so it's just really a detail about the concept; and in no way a "flaw" in the final outcome. :)
Congratulations!! :D

Hello. I'm french, and for my English homework, I must choose a photography and describe it to the others. Can-I take your photography? And if you have the time for, can you explain why you use matchsticks?

It's a great idea and concept.
The ilumination is great. In the midle of the lightening, the machas are clear, and the laston, burned, mix itself up with dark of the wood behing.

Life is short if you are only spending time waiting for things.
It's all about the journey, not the goal.
