First off, this is an amazing photo, job well done.
The atmosphere of the photo feels quite welcoming despite that the surroundings are abandoned. It really draws me into the photo. Taunting me to explore more and more of the mansion.
The colors in the photo are what I think makes it such a great piece of art. The lighting too is also done well. Nothing is too dark, nor is anything too bright. It gives off a warm aura even though decay is all around.
Having the piano positioned where it is in the photo catches the eye and also including the sliding doors leading to another room shows the different atmospheres of the mansion.
It honestly reminds me of an Alice In Wonderland theme.
Having read the previous critique, it was mentioned that this piece has an Alice in Wonderland like theme. I can definitely see that within the doors and the next room over. The abandoned feel is really hypnotizing and really draws me in. It makes me wonder more about the story behind this piece. I want to know more. What can you tell me? The lighting is really well done and you captured the look of the piece rather well. Please ignore my icon. I'm just interested in German history, but I will be changing it after I post this citique.
My God, how can people leave a piano to decay like that?! The photo itself is beautiful but the piano makes it somewhat tragic.. I don't know, maybe it's just the fact that I've been playing for half my life now and yet can't afford an actual huge black monster piano to have at home.
oOOPS sorryyy i read about the info's about abandoned places, i understand!! i also see the beauties in them sorry bout it! I just got curious (since its like a theme for a horror movie, i love horrorr! XD) so yeah i respect!! it. ^.^
it always saddens me to see once a great and wonderful home become rundown i cant help but think of all the memories it once held and if anyone that had lived there would feel if they saw its current state
All these old, abandoned building and homes, it make curious to the story of why these places became abandoned in the first place. Did the person or persons run out of money? Did they no longer have the means to up keep it?
That being said I've also seen where people just have no care for the home they're in. We had people destroy my grandparents old house, and when we finally got it back it was ruined for good. And it was such a cozy home before all that.
...it makes me sad to see things that someone could be getting use out of just sitting there and decaying. *sigh* The photo itself is beautiful, but the utter -waste- of things like that piano and the cabinet in the other room just bothers me.
Summons conflicting emotions. There's something evocative about faded ruins but they're sad too when you think of the faded/damned elegance of this obviously once fine house, and then you have the incongruity of what looks to be a piano in good condition. I love the light, warmed by the peach curtains and the general composition. Thanks for sharing.
I always get sad when I see a piano, all alone in an abandoned place- or even in any house where no one can play it. Maybe it's just because I play the instrument, but I just feel like a piano without a player is like a body without a heart.
... I really, really want to have a go at that piano... I want to know how it sounds like hahaha
I can just imagine a video being made here A girl with a white dress it'll make it seem like she's glowing among the ruins or a black dress that'll also fit well 8'DDD and then she'll be playing one of Chopin's Nocturnes <33333
