Breaking up by alltelleringet Breaking up by alltelleringet
I shot this a day in March when the ice was breaking up. I would love to hear your thoughts on it, technical improvements, style, feeling, mood? What comes to your mind when you see it?

It calls to mind the brokenness of a divorced family, and how often times the children can be forced to choose between the two of their parents; each of the two halves representing the two halves of their family.

reminds me of Caspar David Friedrichs "Eismeer" - well done! Really like the blue tint and the dramatic feel. It's nice and balanced with the 2 houses. I could imagine to add some other element in the left down corner.

This is absolutely beautiful! Reminds me of Brett Helquist's illustrations. I really like how the top half of the image has such a calm atmosphere whilst the bottom half is dramatic and full of movement. Your attention to detail really is breath-taking!

I think a hint of color (like slightly red roof to make the house stand out more) might help a bit. But it's still a great work - I love your photomanipulation skills and imagination :clap: :+fav:

Holland Island immediately came to mind: [link] Maybe because I'm a sucker for abandoned places being "reclaimed" by nature.
As far as your piece goes, nothing major, really. It's all good. :) Well, one thing, when I think of it, perhaps the colour palette is a bit uniform.

I'd like to start off by saying that the emotional and conceptual impact of this work is stunning. I feel the brutal and bitter sting of being torn away from your "companion". However, I feel that this needs more work. For one, it still feels like the two halves of the house are photoshopped in; they needed to blended in a little bit more. For one, there is not nearly enough snow on them to match what the weather has done to the surrounding areas. Also, it took me a bit to realize that it was actually one house torn in two. Hope this helps.

I think I will need to find a different place to build a house next time. I may have a big TV, but it's too far away right now.

I don't want to be mean, but this is not your best piece... I find it quite hard to grasp what's going on. Overall mood is cool, tho.

No prob... I work as a digital artist in the advertising industry... and every client is simply obsessed about how "easy" his image is to read... With time, it somehow became pretty darn important to me too. Details are cool, but you need something that gets the viewer's attention as soon as he sees the image... else he'll be looking at something else before he even realized he was looking at something cool.

I really love how you can see the tyre-track on the ice and the broken-of bits. It makes it seem that it's a whole world that has broken of and that someone was desperate to go with it. Or maybe get away from it before it was too late?

since it's Earth Day, it makes me think of the global warming.. and the polar ice caps breaking apart, and how we're ruining our planet :|

HOWEVER. I love how the longer you look at it, the more you notice. Like, how I didn't notice the van right away, or even the road at all xP

The houses are too small and not blending in. The spatial ratios are incorrect.

It's awesome! My only complaint is that it's kind of dark... and since it's mostly one shade/color, it's hard to make different things out right away. Maybe more contrast would work? I for one like the broken up road just fine, but I agree the car is a little unnecessary. :)

I agree with a previous comment, about the car and the street not being necessary, as it's such a powerful piece without them. Your eyes are naturally drawn to the houses, perching precariously on the ice, the car and road barely registered after the shock of their situation. :O :)
