Today's SL Flickr Pick: Powerfully Composed Images by Andrej Paulik

Cajsa Lilliehook covers the best in virtual world screenshot art and digital painting

Andrej Paulik’sStreetlight Skate” is beautifully composed. I love how he employed multiple composition “rules” to create a truly stunning picture. Here's how: 

SL composition guide Golden Ratio

The skateboarder in the upper left is placed by the Golden Ratio, both people by the Rule of Thirds, and look at the diagonals, not only in their gaze, but how the metal bars in the upper left are echoed in the lower right.

Bella Ciao Ciao Ciao” just happens to be another skateboarding pic. What I love about this one is the sensation of speed created by the tunnels leading lines and the lights. I love the curve in the background. Such an exciting picture.


Slow Night in the Park” is another beautiful pic. Notice how he does not appear to be exactly in the middle even though he is. The light on the lake and the path create an artificial border that makes the grass on the far left disappear. But it’s there. I notice he is walking on the curb edge of the sidewalk. It reminds me of when we did gymnastics in Phy. Ed., we would all pretend the sidewalk curb was our balance beam. We all had to specialize in one field of gymnastics and I chose balance beam as the one least likely to break my neck. It’s slower and there’s less distance to fall. 

Andrej Paulik’s photostream is remarkable. He tries a lot of different styles. He loves to play with lighting and he makes amazing fire pics. He’s shooting his adventures with his friends and there’s a lot of gold in that thar stream.
