When I found this deviation, it took me a second to find the snail. From this moment on I was absolutely amazed by this picture!
It is heart-touching, emotional and beautiful - although it is simple.
The perspective fits perfectly, it gives the picture its "special touch". The over-exposed part where the sun is shining seems to symbolize what the snail is aiming for. Moreover, the green grass and the leaves on the trees are like a contrast to the white sun and the black trees.
Very well composed - very well done! I really like looking at it. And I am sorry - I don't know how I could give you a better critique on this one, but there is absolutely nothing that would need an improvement. :)
What do you think?

Beautiful! I love the concept. :love:
I have learning disabilities, and it's frustrating to be "slower" than everyone else at accomplishing things. This picture is very inspiring to me. Thanks. :hug:

Astonishing perspective and composition on what could be an ordinary subject. The eye climbs, as well as the snail, towards the top of the trees. Maybe to reach the green leaves. Who would thougt of such a dynamic and dramatic picture beeing the focus a snail...
