Leap of Faith by alltelleringet Leap of Faith by alltelleringet
Into the unknown...

I was working on this from now and then from fall last year where I shot the jumping tower as well as the landscapes in Ireland. I would love to hear your thoughts on it! Composition, story, light & colour or anything that comes to mind?

Oh I like this, it has a Harry Potter-like feeling to it.

Hi there! :wave: A "Leap of Faith", you call this deviation? :greetings: And the yellow sign says: "one balloon per person"... Hmmmm...
As a man of Christ I find this to be an interpretation of holding onto faith in God even in the most unlikely of circumstances, 
but then again, many others can view this in a totally different light. The balloons, thus in my point of view, could symbolize the personal
gift every believer has received from God, the gift of faith that allows them to minister in God's guidance. 

I know this must sound very overwhelming to take in a comment, but it is what I am seeing while observing this deviation. :nod:
Neat and interesting work nonetheless, fellow deviant! :clap:

I love it! You gotta take the leap, go into the unknown. Maybe you'll fall to your death, that's the risk. But maybe you'll grow wings or be carried by the balloon, and learn something. The fact that the man is suspended mid-air lets both situation be potentially true, so it's a really good representation of going on an adventure or facing your fears, with both all its threat and potential. The colours, the lighting directed at the character, the balloons, all make it very clear that this is an adventure, with all its potential (and not a something else like suicide).

Also, the distance and angle make the character look small, child-like, an idea supported by his use (and faith in) a colourful balloon. He looks like a junior going to his first job interview, dressed like he thinks he should be (the suit and suitcase) but only really armed with his junior experience (the balloon). All this really show that he has still plenty to learn, he has the potential, and the youth, to take it all and go on this adventure! An older, more experienced character wouldn't convey the idea of learning, of adventure, of unknown as well.

I don't know if those were your intentions, but it's what I felt!

Insta-fav and insta-watch, thank you!

Seeing him being the only person around with no others behind him (and the light being green) gives the piece a kinda eerie feeling. The whole place doesn't look like people'd get often here. But then still there are these very out of place colourful baloons. And the pit doesn't look to creepy either with all the soft cotton clouds there. Also he is going towards the sunny and nice part of the scenery. Can't say if he'll fly or fall (he himself doesn't look like he's to fall having only little stand left on his leg. but the balloon's line isn't straight to support weight..) but whatever will happen to the guy, he sure seems to be ready. 
Also love your caption with the unknown. We really aren't to know whats behind the clouds. Or outside the frame into the light too.
