This is my first written critique of any piece of art that I’ve ever seen, and it is given with the most respectful intentions. I’m not a professional artist or critic, just a lover of art. But I am an Engineer by trade, and I tend to analyze things, including art.

All of the colors in this photo are great, and technically I believe it is an excellent piece.

This is a beautiful, however, foreboding photo of a sinister stretch of road.

The yellow line indicates, from the eye of the photographer, that a car in the right lane could legally pass another car using the left lane, through the curve. It is likely that a passing car is traveling at high speed while approaching the crest of the road as it moves back into the right lane.

Unknown to this passing car, another car could be coming from over the crest of the road, also able to legally pass a car according to the yellow line. If this car was also passing another car, while at a high rate of speed, the two cars could both be travelling at high speed, and end up crashing in the right lane, just before the crest. And the two cars being passed could also be involved in the crash.

I don’t believe I’m a person who just sees ‘gloom’ everywhere I go, but I love cars and I love to drive on cool looking and adventurous roads, and when I saw this photo, I immediately saw the yellow line, and instinctively envisioned a crash.

The impact of this photo, to me, is enormous. I’ve spent more time thinking about this photo than many others that I have in my favorites.

Though it evoked a tragic vision in my mind, the fact that it was able to do that tells me that this is a great piece.

Did the photographer drive this stretch of road and notice the same thing about the center-line that i did, and decide to capture it in a photo to see if anyone would notice the same thing?

Or was the photographer simply trying to capture the beautiful colors of nature, in contrast with matching grey's of the sky and the road?

Only the photographer knows the answer.

Great work!

Amazing picture. You have a gift my friend! :)
Tell me, do you do this as a hobby or are you doing this full time? And are all those places near where you live or you take pictures all around Finland? :)

Thank you my friend, such feedback motivates me a lot. I think i will go professional at some point, but for now we can just call it a hobby, even though it went beyond it, spending almost my whole time for this:)
