This image is very bold! The lighting on the models face is very soft and creates a feeling of smoothness in the image. The angle that the image is shot at also creates the feeling of power and authority in your subject. The cloudy backdrop and the birds really bring the whole image together. Overall when i look at this image the mood that comes off, despite the grey clouds, is one of power and strength. The birds only seem to strengthen this theme by bringing in the idea of freedom. This image made me stop and look further to fully appreciate all the drama.
This is a very beautiful picture that also has a lot of impact but not so much originality. First things first the vision is amazing it's clear and does not suffer for intense amount of blur or motion blur. The technique is also fantastic. The lighting fits the picture and the colors. The picture has a lot of impact. It's a girl staring at the gloomy sky with birds flying there is going to be some impact. So now to the originality it's not the most original thing I've seen. Girl staring at sky has been done thousands of time but the impact makes up for the lack of originality.
