AFTER THE FALL
"We Are Alive..."
:star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

First of, this is my entry for "Fotolia 4 : Stockpocalypes Contest" - [link]
I actually missed doing something like this, honestly.
Tt's been a year since I made a post-apocalypes artwork
if you would visit my gallery. I've been busy lately.

I really enjoy creating this, it feels good.
This is my passion that I want to share.
Just so you know, I tried to add some depth-of-field,
but it didn't turn out good, it loses the quality and detail
of some elements so yes, no DOF, my style for this one.

I hope you like it.
Any comments are highly welcome.

Thank you for viewing. :+favlove:

I think this is one of the more realistic pieces I've seen in this contest. The flare adds a nice touch.

Really good work. I like the idea of that apocalypse world and that happy looking family in front, maybe they survived a zombie apocalypse =D
Nice idea!

It's got that really great 1950s atomic feel, happy, good looking families stupidly optimistic about their impending doom! Love it!

Not bad... Personally, I think that there is too much stuff ant the composition is a little bit weak, but the photoshop skills are fairly good.

To improve your composition, well, first, as I said, there's a little bit too much stff, but the bigest problem is the empty space created by the sky. You see, you have to keep your viewer's eye inside of the picture. Here, you could just add a darker hallow aroud your pic and it should already help a lot.

Also, the sun's horizontal position is good, but it should be higher. It would give a more dynamic impression if it was placed on a foce point created by the law of thirds. Actually, it is just on the vertical line of the two thirds of the pic. ;-) The choice to put the sun on the right side was goo throught. In a culture in wich people reads from left to right, the brightest part of the picture is alway better on the right half of the picture.

Finally, I would suggest you to add some atmospheric perspective. If you look far away, you'll see that every thing lost the saturation and is getting a bit grayish. Try it, it will add a lot of depth to your image! ;-)

Thanks for the comment. :) I am well satisfied on my work though.
I actually added a depth-of-field before, but it didn't turned out good,
I don't want to lose some of the details, so yes, my vision, my style for this.
