:iconrev0lutionary-sanity:
The vision displayed in the Medium indicates a fallen feather in which "Icarus" had. Much said from the title. Without your title none could recognize this therefore taking away your impact. Your photo overall is quite appealing and original. I like how the leaf, indicating that it too had fallen, lies on the ground as well. The shadowing and background helps to emphasize the main subject all together. I'm not sure that the exact positioning of the feather would of mattered but it could of made a different impact if it was moved away from the leaf. This piece is very well done and the meaning behind it can be told.
Overall, good job and I look forward to seeing the rest of your art.

Better flight high for a short while and feel the sun, than to never fly at all...
A very beautiful picture and description.

On a quiet street where old ghosts meet I see her walking now
Away from me so hurriedly my reason must allow
That I had wooed not as I should a creature made of clay -
When the angel woos the clay he'd lose his wings at the dawn of day.

I gave her gifts of the mind I gave her the secret sign that's known
To the artists who have known the true gods of sound and stone
And word and tint. I did not stint for I gave her poems to say.
With her own name there and her own dark hair like clouds over fields of May.
