Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-30
:icondenismcclean:
Has the appeal of the reality. When I looked at it first, I thought it lacked the definition of some other art and maybe could do with some more but then I looked again. This is not staged, not that staging is a bad thing but with this kind of rendition, reality must be absolute. Target area leaves are in focus as is the monk - nice, but the background, place of departing (History) is past and now out of focus. I really like that, especially as the foliage on the other side of the foreground, (Not really the point of focus) is also out of focus but to a lesser degree. I hope it is fair to say that even a Buddhist could observe this picture of "Passive Intent" that is in accord with the surroundings and adds to the general appeal.
What do you think?
