Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-03
Once upon a time... by =fabriloddo has "a wonderful use of HDR to enhance the dreamy atmosphere of the scene and add a pleasant touch of fairytale surrealism". I'm usually not the biggest fan of bright sunshiny colours, but this piece just flows them together so well that it needs to be seen. ( Suggested by lindelokse and Featured by overdebated )

Personally I prefer the dark and creepy version, it has more texture and emotion to it. That being said however, this is a really awesome first attempt, it looks so much like a digital painting giving it the sense it can't be real, which is appropriate for Disney, regardless the country. The colors are incredibly bright and cheerful, even down to the exposed rock. Overall this is really very good, and again, an indicator that staying away from centering the subject can on occasion be ignored and the resulting image will be able to speak on its own. Keep up the good work.

Such a adorable image. The colors are so vibrant. The light blue sky contrast very well with the blue hues of the castle. There so much joy and fun. I feel like a little girl again wanting to be a princess. All the details and textures are beautiful.
I saw the darker version. And I compared. I enjoy both.
I believe they are both well thought out. But the lighting in this one is so beautiful I half to say this is my favorite of the two. Overall I really can't point anything to improve on. This is a very lovely picture.

Despite the problems with EuroDisney, they were smart enough to make the Castle unique in a place where castles are everywhere.
