Loneliness by foeo Loneliness by foeo
When everybody left you, you feel lonely to the roots...

(I'm very sure this idea isn't very original, but I still like it, even though I'm overfed by dandelion shots. But I still prefer the other one. [link] )

Submission for the May '05 Emotive Macro Challange over at *macrophoto.

Update 2005-05-31: Made the 3rd place in the Emotive challange. Thanks to everyone who voted :-) .

Edit 2005-08-08: Reuploaded the image, because I like this framing better. (And it matches the print this way ;) .)

I like the idea, however what's with the background? Manipulated? I feel it not needed when you have such a beautiful photograph in the first place.

;)Hell, that's just my opinion.

No, the background is, as it came out of the cam. It's called depth of focus/field ;) .

Great meaning and photo... dandelions are prevalent but still, they're the sort of thing that just has to be done...

Yeah, they are a bit overdone. That's why I actually prefer the other dandelion shot. It's different and not so clichee.

I don't think it should be called "loneliness" it should be called "the ballerina" or "the ballet"

I love this picture and faved it because it reminds me not of loneliness but a ballerina in a ballet. The dance is about anticipation for a new adventure and a new life...this little seed is waiting for the wind to take it on an adventure, the end of which will be life as a flower and this is pretty awesom...so I don't see any loneliness, just anticipation and adventure...this seed will float on the wind gracefully like a lovely ballerina...

Hmm... I don't see the ballerina... but I can grasp where that comes from. An inspiring idea, maybe next spring/summer I try to make one that is obviously a ballet. Thanks :) .

pseudomania Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2005
okay i'll explain more

the top white part is the skirt

and if you go to the actual seed, it resembles one ballerina foot on tip toe...

foeo Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, as I said, I can grasp where that comes from. It's just I don't see it in this photo. Or that the Loneliness part is showing stronger to me. But I already figured a way to show the ballerina next time. Just needs a lower angle and a closer crop.
It's very inspiring to hear how others see images, I like that, thanks again :) .
