epic battle over a sunflower field near my city Reghin, Romania
Add a Comment:
While our homelands are neighbours, the landscape here reminds me a landscape near my grandpa's country house. Such a wonderful photo of hundreeds or even thousands sunflowers definitely calms down and show all the beauty of domestical countryside. Storm-like sky brings some mystical presense, as well as being a perfect sky background for a sunflower road. It also seems like these flowers are going to prepare for something serious, like some changes. But not just that, but also their positions like they are acting like humans, caused by their unique structure.
Amd what such a beautiful landscape far away, after the sunflowers! Great shot!

This photo is fantastic in how, per my experience anyway, it conveys a sense of darkness and violence at first sight, even without knowing there is an ongoing battle, hence real violence, in the physical subject.

The strong contrast and red-orange cast of the entire scene would be strong factors in this, I believe. The apparent absence of blues (a calming colour) and apparent(?) desaturation of greens augment the effect. There is almost a dichromatic effect produce an additional sense of contrast/conflict and boldness, which all the more captures the essence of the subject. I don't know if you used filters or manipulation at all, but however this was done, the colors here make for a most powerful image, eliciting a visceral response.

The flowers seem alive to me as well, perhaps because of their varied orientations which keep the eye moving. They resemble a large gathering of people reacting to a difficult environment. The bowed heads, seen from behind, lend a sense of oppression and sadness.

Dang, I'd imagine you'd have to have a ladder or something to stand on to take this photo. Plenty of rain and sunshine for tall sunflowers!

I love the contrast between the dramatic feeling in the clouds and the more peaceful feeling of the sunflowers. The colors and lighting are just fantastic!

Someone needs to yell "Charge!" Lovely! Wish we had a field like that in Canada!
I took this to be a photo of some weather condition at sunset or such like, but I had a weird gut reaction to it:

There is something strangely terrifying about this.

At least now I know it wasn't a bizarre read of mine, on something natural and impressive.  It's terrifying because there is a battle, and an epic one no less. Thank goodness you mentioned that in the description!
