[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo just as a pure experiment. Don't know is it OK or not, but sometimes very simple photos can be great. What is it? It is a clear spring blue sky above Istria as it was yesterday.

What do you want to show us throw this one ? :o)

A big blue sky on a nice day. Very nice colour, and not a cloud to be seen. No rain will come today. A very nice and colourful experiment.

Well, this is very well composed, I like the very few details, especially in the left-corner (or the rightcorner???)
It's just a funny idea to photograph this sky, Filip, nice done:-))

ok. i'll take part in these discussion
Filip, you're Master !!!
in Istria the sky is UNusual!!! or was yesterday;;)
who knows..

and so on, and so forth
2 points for clean idea!!

Simple idea, yet to be done!

Your picture shows something not everybody experienced. On any clear blue sky day, lie on the grass and look for a while at the sky. Little by little, your eyes will get used to the blue tone, and you will discover in fact that the sky color is not at all uniform. It's a moving soft pattern plenty of almost unoticable changes occuring under the pressure of invisible factors. In my workshop, I pushed the levels of your pict at the maximum to let emerge some part of those patterns. While the extreme blue area is due to the camera vignetting, it should have been a perfectly circular pattern if the sky color was uniform.

Thanks for showing us that beautiful simple natural effect!

I think this could be a good alternative to the Microsoft's Windows blue screen :-)

zero contrast between the blue sky and the blue rabbit (I can see it)

Nice experiment and I like the idea. The colour is amazing. Good job Filip.

deleted critic

Hello Filip, this is very nice and creative! I just happened to see it in the Zen theme and then I read the crit by the deleted account.

My opinion, is that you dared to upload it, to face critics like that one and you did well to do it! You have my full support!

And luckily, it made me discover you and your gallery, and you are so clever! You are a great artist and you will be a great photographer.

Keep on posting, and be creative! :)

Cheers to you and dad. Yan :)

Interesting idea. It's a one shot only for TL and you've got it.

Hello Filip!
Yes. I like the simple pictures too. BUT it is not interesting for me because it is too simple...
+ I like this(, but not very good)...
