Keu janena keu janena

In the act of leaving us all for a few weeks, my friend Aftab Uzzaman (aftab.) provides us all with this excellent sample of his work.

Keu janena keu janena

Once again, the composition here is minimal, and the processing provides us with the added element of sombre mood. Soft earthy colours and a dead subject say eloquently farewell; they speak of sadness. This feeling is enhanced by the dead flower’s stalk – anchoring the whole in a slight loss of focus – being entirely outside the golden ratio area, thereby giving rise to a wide expanse of negative space… but space that offers hope in the brightness of its central tone.

Speaking of golden ratios, these are used very well within this image: an intersection of primaries through the remnants of the floral heart; one constraining the damaged petals on the left, and the one live petal extending right-most along the line of the upper secondary golden ratio.

Simple. But effective.
