forest in blur. by blueberry1222

forest in blur.

photo taken at Redwood National Forest near Eureka, Ca. Hands down the most primordial forest that I ever had the fortune to hike in.
This works for me Krista: the blur and the desaturation of the vegetation underlines the relatively ephemeral nature of the undergrowth as counterpoint to the solidity and durable nature of the pines.

@vignouse thank you for specific critique. I kinda liked the results, but I thought that maybe more color would be better, and then I did that and didn't like it even more...

Like the blurry foliage but sharp trunks.

@blueberry1222 Interesting Krista: your original edit popped up on my Home page, where you were complaining that you thought the colours were too pale. I opened your project with the intention of suggesting that you should desaturate them further, but you had already taken the image down. When it re-appeared, you had done exactly that, so I just left a straight critique! Great minds and all that...

It feels like I'm running through the forest, that's what this blur does to me. I like it!
