In the Palm of My Hand by Astrikos In the Palm of My Hand by Astrikos
It's the rainbow reflection off my bike. This one turned out the best, right before the bike fell on top of me. Ouch!~
:bulletred: This is not a photomanipulation. Reflection :bulletred:


I Love rainbows, and i thought this turned out well. The rainbow was so small but so cool!~ :la:


I love how this turned out.

Post Processing~
+ brightness, contrast, vibrance and a touch of radial blur.
*I think I might remove the radial blur....


:bulletblue:

What does it make you feel? What's your perspective of this piece?

Well this is only my second ciritique, so sorry if it ends up not being very helpful.
Anyway I really like the way you captured that reflection :-) Though maybe if the lighting would have been a little better it would have a stronger impact. (But that is hardly your fault, so not much YOU could change when you're outside)
But I really like how strong the colors are and how amazingly well you can see the rainbow pattern, even though it's reflected from your bicycle onto your hand, usually the colors fade a lot more.
Also I'd suggest warming your hands up ;-) they look a bit frosted haha All in all it's a very great moment you captured.
What do you think?

Super cute! The position of the hands really makes the rainbow look like it's something you could actually hold.

Great job! :)

That's not something I'd have thought of - but yeah, remove the radial blur (just for comparison)

Ouch indeed D:

It's clever! Wouldn't've thought of doing something like this. I think the impact could be heightened with a different angle, like tilted more so it's not exactly dead center. Also yeah the radial blur isn't doing it for me but I think the texture could be distracting too.

It was hilarious and worth it though!

Yeah, I agree. The bike crashing down upon my shoulder made it hard to get that angle though! xD Plus, the sun moved away! boo. Thanks!
