Changeling by jonathoncomfortreed Changeling by jonathoncomfortreed
Inspiration
PUCK
The king doth keep his revels here tonight:
Take heed the queen come not within his sight;
For Oberon is full of ire and wrath,
Because that she as her attendent hath
A lovely boy, stol'n from an Indian king;
She never had so sweet a changeling;
And jealous Oberon would have the child
Knight of his train, to trace the forests wild;
But she for spite withholds the loved boy,
Crowns him with flowers and makes him all her joy.

A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
Hello, wild boy.
Do you want to run away with me?
(What secrets do your heart hide?)


Technique
This is my cousin, the same one from Depth of Vision. He was at my house for Thanksgiving. As the sun was getting low I dragged him out to the field to take pictures of him. It was really fun, and I got some great pictures from it. :thumbsup:
(Aren't his eyes amazing?)
Copy/paste FTW.

This was shot as the sun was setting. We were both kneeling in the long grass (apparently his knees were hurting really bad), and I used the depth of focus, shadow and the beautiful surroundings to get the best picture I could.

I love this and those eyes make me shiver. There is something malicious as well as something peaceful and beautiful in that gaze, and I love how the flowers cast their shadows on the skin. Gorgeous shot!

Hello! I'm writing this one story about a changeling, and I was amazed to find that this picture matches the picture of the main character perfectly!! Can I please please please use this as the cover art in the story?? It'll be posted here to DeviantArt only and I'll give you the full credit for the picture. It just looks sooooo beautiful and it would be an honor to be allowed to use!!

It's lovely <3 But I feel like that it was a shame you didn't also take a wide angle shot, so we could see your cousin wholly surrounded by flowers. Still, this picture's perfect <3

Haha well the point of replying was so it would stay in my inbox as a reminder until I had a chance to do the critique. Sadly my premium membership ran out before I had a chance to. But I was just going to leave you a really long comment as a critique. But the thing is, I stared at this photo for about 40 minutes (yes, really!) and I can not come up with anything to critique. I mean the composition, clarity, and color are all balanced well. The shadow of the flowers on his face lends a bit of mystery to a mischevious but knowing expression is his eyes. All around this is just spectacular. Wonderful shot, hon! :heart:
