The Bright Side of Life by Marinshe The Bright Side of Life by Marinshe
HAPPY EASTER to everyone....! ! ! :D

If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle.
That's the thing.

Always look on the bright side of life.

The Bright Side of Life by *Marinshe ( Suggested by Minato-Kushina and Featured by DemonMathiel )
Lovely. Fun. Sunny. Spring like.
Okay I'm gushing over this one. But here's why:

1. Wonderful cool crop added to an almost panoramic frame. This panoramic space is filled up with smiling yellow and lively dark green.

2. I also liked how the tiny sunflowers give it life and movement. But Marinshe didn't stop there. She added those odd colored hapiness sun shine gym shoes. One gets the impression Apollo's wife is visiting a local shrine.

3. The closeness to nature comes in two forms. Closeup of flowers and the lower level panoramic crop. We don't have to know who the model is. Maybe it's Marinshe. What we feel is maybe it's us, tiptoeing through the sunflowers on a balmy warm sunshiny day.

Summary: Great happy shot and perfect for Spring.

What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
73 out of 75 deviants thought this was fair.

How the focus is on the dandelions instead of the shoes is a different and nice approach. It says that the person is there and having the time of her life, but the joy belongs to the flowers that surround her. Love the colors and the edit in contrast really makes the pictures pop. Also having black leggings was nice because it draws the eye to the shoes and what is bellow the shoes. The angle that you took the shot is also interesting because it almost looks life you were in the grass on your stomach because of the up-close flowers near the bottom of the photo. Overall I think this is a great shot that deserves attention. :)
