Daily Deviation

Given 2011-08-16
This deviants gallery is filled with whimsical, romantic, soft and wonderful photography, each one speaks of a story using minimal effects and poses. This is just one beautiful shot, almost a fairy tale. Apples are such a powerful allegory.

Nice photo. Great composition. I like the dark green grass as a backdrop. I like the red apples in the basket and spilled onto the ground nearby. I *really* like the soft, summery skirt and the girl's bare and beautiful legs. Wonderful composition.

I can see why some interpret it negatively. The colors are a bit muted. And there is a sense of stillness here. However, it is not Snow White - there is no bitten apple. I may be completely off base here, bit to me it is a positive photo. It evokes summer and peace. A girl catching a nap on a lazy summer day after an afternoon of gathering apples. Perhaps a little a change in color balance could brighten it up a bit.

I think this is my favorite of all of your's, because it's so carefree and whimsical. And her legs are frightfully white! It's so pretty! I really wish I could just ead out to the apple orchard and nap now.

I love how natural it is.. how you can actually see bits of dirt and such on the soles of her feet, and the discoloured dress makes it perfect.

I feel like the only one who didn't think of Snow White the first few times I looked at this.
I actually thought of a young girl who had stopped to roll in the grass/take a nap in the summer afternoon after picking some apples.
But I guess with the slightly greyish hue, it gives off a more deathly feel to the photograph. Regardless of different interpretations, it's a lovely photo with great technique and eye.

no, actually it wasn't means to look like snow white. but i found it funny that everyone thought it was :D. to me, it is also just a girl lying in the grass, enjoying the warmth of the afternoon and nature.

this photo makes me think of death, like she has fallen over with a basket of apples. not meant as an insult at all, just my take on the piece. very nice and congratulations on the daily deviation

the apples on the ground and her pale feet gives the impression that she just fell and died.

This looks very childish but it's kind of tragic at the same time.

hihihi I love apples and the effect that they give in every single picture or writing :)
