Hi leonie, first of all a general comment that I thought they were a brilliant set of images of something that obviously exists but I had never thought of before.
I love the contrast in the colours and the more subdued background colour palette. Images don’t have to be unfortunate or cruel to have a gentle surreal touch, look at Guy Tilliam who was described as having a more lyrical voice and I think that is where yours fit.
Image 1 of the happy kids works due to the pinks and the surreal element of the soles of the feet and legs waving about.
Image 2 is amusing due to contrast of dog and elephant, good spot and good timing!
Image 3 works for me due to the extreme distance and perspective of the 2 figures which was the second thing I noticed, first of all it made me smile that the figure on the right followed the line of stubby bushes! On enlarging the image….as am on small lap top I then also spotted the contrast of bike and camel?!?!?!
Image 4 has the surreal element of perspective again with big dog small elephant, and the dogs expression is …seriously another photo let me sleeeeeeeeep!
Image 5 I also love, the timing/composition again of man elephant and tree, the elephant and tree with the same colour and texture and the lens flare all just come together really well.
Well done I enjoyed that set 😮) – Jan Fairburn
Lively use of colour in the first one as well. – Catherine Banks
