wow.... the depth of field, focus lighting... I love that it's not your typical weed plant shot; the angle could possibly be argued as such, but the mood you've given it is totally unique and perfect. the lighting brings out the texture in the leaves crisply and shadowed beautifully. The lower level gives an even greater depth, and the brighter center fading out to dark really pulls your eye in and guides it out all over the whole photo. Overall i think this is awesome and suits it's purpose quite well-woo hoo for 420 deviations This is an instant fave for me
I don't even know where to start with this. Not only are dark, minimally lighted compositions hard to pull off, they're a pain in the ass. This is FLAWLESSLY executed. I love the mysterious feel and mood to it, almost as if the viewer has found something. The rhythm is apparent here, it moves you around the top layer of leaves and down to the next, and down to the next. The colors are absolutely perfect, not the bright green we're all accustomed to seeing but a deep forest green, which is an original change. Nonetheless, the viewer immediately recognizes this as a marijuana plant. A smoking bong faded into the background illuminated by soft light (candle lighting perhaps?) would be a nice touch and go along with the soft red background you have now, but it might take away the emphasis. Just a thought.
All in all this is a beautiful, beautiful composition. Technical skill here is apparent, this is well thought out and extremely original, I haven't seen many original, well executed photographs with this subject matter. Well done.
