The well-thought composition of this pice is what I like the most. Asymmetry is something I love in a fractal, but here, with all those tiny and big flowers, plus leaves and braches, on the right, it could have been excessive in the face of the smooth, smaller, and not at all heavy left part.

The artist, in my opinion, found the right solution and applyed it almost perfectly, working with colours and textures. First of all, the gorgeous blues, greens, and oranges are really well balanced.
Second, the elements on the right part, except for the blue flowers, which are the focus of the image, feature very smooth and light textures, a thing that lightens the feeling of excessive crowding. On the left, instead, the textures of the water and the clouds give a bit of movement to that part, making it less static.

This is a beautiful waterscape. The water illusion, with the moon partially covered by clouds in the background, gives it a dreamy, romantic feeling. I also love the sharpness of the foreground opposed to the softness of the setting, a third element which highly contributes to give balance.

A work like this would definitely go in my wishlist!

Let's find some flaws now, since otherwise this will be really not much of a "critique". :giggle: I think if we could see just half an inch more on the left, this would in my opinion provide a bit more balance still, and give more "oxygen" to the right part. I'd love to see a bit more of that water and sky!
Aside from that, I really don't know what else to "critique".

Congrats on another great work, Anna! :clap:

How bitter you sound that you couldn't download!  I see you have nothing in your gallery so I can only suppose you are here on dA to collect other people's artwork just for yourself - for free!

Thank you very much! Also thanks for pointing out the site you find it on, and for adding me to your :+devwatch: Yes, it's a violation, but at least it does acknowledge me as the original artist. My work is in many obscure places on the net, particularly on foreign sites, and it's infuriating, but it's just a risk we all take as soon as we upload anything on the internet unfortunately.

Very welcome, on all counts :)
Luckily idd it does :) I do know alot of art gets stolen from dA (as much as probably from other art sites and such, ofcourse) and it is a horrible thing, but when you post stuff online, idd, you can hardly avoid it.
I'm kinda glad it was on that website though, that way I found you and your amazing art here :)

Ooops... I think I clicked on "request print" while I was trying to fave this!

Anyway! This is really epic! I mean, those blues and greens and oranges are so gorgeous and well balanced! This is a beautiful landscape, or, better, waterscape; the water illusion, with the moon partially covered by clouds in the background, gives it a dreamy romantic feeling. I also love the sharpness of the foreground opposed to the softness of the setting.

Now that I come to think of it, I guess I would've clicked on "request print" nonetheless, if I could afford to buy something now. Which sadly isn't, but this would definitely go in my wishlist.

I think I'm going to have dreams of blue a flowers' snowfall, tonight. Another great work; congrats! :heart: :+fav:

Aww thanks so much - and no worries about requesting a print without the intention, that often seems to happen, and I know not to get excited! :lol:

The only stuff I still upload with prints available are my fractal fantasy scenes. I kinda want to share what I do more freely, if you know what I mean. Last year I made enough from sales in deviant dollars to be able to fund a few subs, both for other people as well as myself. Other than that, selling fractal art seems to be pretty hopeless, and that isn't the reason I do it. It's really therapy for me!

I wish you'd put your words into the Critique? No-one ever openly critiques my work :(

You're welcome! I love the idea: fractal art = free therapy. It's true! :D

Last night, when I saw this work, I liked it so much I immediatly thought of doing a critique, but it was late and I had to wake early, so I simply sent a comment. But now I have changed it into a critique! :D
