Perch by KrisVlad Perch by KrisVlad
I know it's not a very conventional photograph, but I wanted to focus more on the aesthetics rather than the practicality of such a simplistic shot. I hope you guys dig it too!

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Very minimalist, yet, interested me above all of the other intricate, vibrant paintings/photos/etc. in my deviantWATCH messages.
I see what you were going for here, and you succeeded. The simplicity just brings out a sense of.. silence/serenity in me.
Beauty doesn't have to be complex.
The only real "critique" I'd have is that some of the birds that are closer to each other kind of throw the balance off, but it's really not any worse than having two apples which SHOULD weigh the same but one is like, an ounce heavier.
Basically, I love this. I'm gonna download it, and possibly use it as a wallpaper someday, due to the fact that its "black-and-white" minimalist approach is SIMPLE and clears my head a little.

Vision:
This aspect deals with certains ideas or themes that are shown in the piece of art. Actually I do not think there is any deeper meaning in this image, yet there is nothing that went wrong or is ambiguous. However, in my opinion, art does not always have to have a special statement - it is also important to create art just for art's sake! If you know what I mean...

Originality:
I have already seen pictures of birds sitting on a power cable and I have already seen pictures as silhouettes. But I have never seen a silhouette of birds sitting on a power cable!

Technique:
The whole generality of birds could have been moved a tiny little bit to the right, but that is not of large importance. The image impresses with simplicity and perspicuity. The silhouettes are sharp and clear, which is very good because it requires a certain skill to remove all the small, inaccurate details you see in photos.

Impact:
Once again, the image captivates with its clarity and its distinctness. It exerts calming influence on the viewer and brings down nature to its main aspects. I had to smile when I realized that there is an optical illusion: When looking at the wire, there seem to be white parts crossing the birds! Furthermore, the photo is vivid thanks to the birds' different positions. In this simple picture, it is the even smaller details that make out the whole image!

I think it's a nice concept and a good execution overall although in my opinion the birds are a bit too small. A closer shot would have even more impact. :)
