The overall color of the composition and definitely portrays an “old” look and that has become a part of the subject of the composition. The picture has very good detailing and excellent editing. It’s one of those pictures that you can call “picture-perfect”. Personally for me, I don’t like sepia tones much because they seem to somehow portray a feeding of grief and hopelessness, but that is just my personal feeling. In this case also, the big tree beside the broken one could have signified hope and joy… but somehow to my eyes it fails to do so. The small man and animals in front of the subject do bring some life to the picture but overall it does seem to be a bit gloomy.
The texture of the picture is a really appealing and if there’s something that has added more meaning and depth to the picture it’s the texture of the picture. The portion of the sky right above the tree looks a bit pixilated to me and I don’t really think that is admissible in such a professional photograph.
Well, this looks more like a newspaper photograph to me. I’m not sure but I don’t really think it’s a composition that was there in the mind before clicking it. Had it not been for the really lines, the photograph could have gotten away with a slanting horizon, but the railway line clearly proves that the region is not as hilly as the horizon looks. I would have definitely liked to see more shadow details in this photo graph. Probably a camera with a bigger dynamic range could have made things better. I think some fill flash would have also made the photograph better. The symmetry of the photograph also does not look good to me. The right side is clearly heavier with some of the weight spilling over through the middle into the left side.
The two men and the bushes on the left side of the picture could have been more detailed (at least as clear as the water bottle and the handkerchief) and that at least could have created a good balance of colors and weight.
Well, an excellent piece of picture I must say. Some might say that picture is very dark and a bit of more sharpness could have made it better; personally for me I would say; the picture is not really that bad. It’s very difficult to do the square stuff and this one seems to have been able to do it decently to some extent. An interesting feature about this photograph is that it is divided into two homogeneous segments by the subject of the picture itself. It’s true that a bit of more sharpness could have added more flavor to it and a little more detailing especially near the edges could have made a better, but it’s a cool photo graph to have come out of an amateur’s camera.
If I were told to make this more professional, I would add a bit more aperture to it if I wanted to capture the morning sun in the middle of the forest.
The weather and the arts have conspired: Autumn begins in Berlin in early September now. Because the arg has urged fair, Art Forum, reported as abandoned, now all eyes are on the Art Berlin Contemporary – short abc – addressed in the old post station on the railway triangle. At the same time still be running as a satellite, the “Preview Berlin – The Emerging Art Fair” in a hangar at Tempelhof Airport, Berlin’s list of contemporary art and photography in the transformer station at the Kopenickerstrasse and the Berlin art salon in the Uferhallen than one platform for even younger talent.
The ABC is an exhibition that aims to be not fair. Four years ago, by the initiators of the successful Berlin Gallery Weekend, which always takes place in early May launched waived the show – along the lines of the section “Art Unlimited” at Art Basel – single berths. The gallery must not be present, and for the visitors, who – apart from those who were invited to the Opening Party – in the first days since Wednesday will be released too numerous, is not necessarily seen that the works are for sale. Who is still interested in a price that can learn from the catalog, which is organized alphabetically by artist name, e-mail address and telephone number of the gallery. So it can happen again that a price inquiry will be answered in Dubai with an automatic e-mail, content: The gallery’s portfolio of artists do not take more, and if it does get that, they will not return them.
The useful life of an asset more than a year and is not a low-value commodity (see Glossary: Low-value assets), so the asset over the period of official life is depreciated. Thus can not pay the entire purchase price in the year of purchase are tax deductible as a business expense or claimed as business expenses, but only the annual value of consumption in the form of writing.
Not only depreciable assets which are subject to no consumption value. Normally subject to vacant land, or works of art is not the acknowledged master and tear.
The amount of annual depreciation based on the useful life of the asset and to the depreciation method chosen or prescribed by law. The useful life is determined by the publication of an official depreciation table by the Federal Ministry of Finance and usually updated every two years. Also, the application for future depreciation method (eg straight line, declining balance) is required by law.
Basis for calculating the depreciation is the purchase or production cost of the asset. For acquisition of an asset flows therefore not only the purchase price, but also ancillary costs such as transportation costs and installation costs in the tax base for the depreciation of one.
For Members who purchase (the asset was not acquired in the first month of the year.) Is not the full year’s depreciation, but only for each month one twelfth of the annual depreciation to be set.
The depreciation of an asset fails, it can not be made up in later years.
At the weekend, invited the Art Berlin Contemporary (“abc”) for the presentation of current positions in international art. On show were also works by four artists who are represented in the exhibition “secret societies”. When you ran the opening scene and interested people from around the world in droves.
Already in line for a subject dominated the Small Talk: Is the “abc” the new “Art Forum”? A question that over the course of the evening between the clinking of glasses and flashlight repeatedly came up. The Berlin art fair “Art Forum” has been canceled this year. Many visitors, no consensus with the makers of the side-events and bad timing within the international trade fair operations had led to the temporary off. Next to the main competition of the “Berlin list” and the “preview” so far as the “abc” was one – a composite of Berlin galleries, she organized this year for the fourth time you will run the “Art Forum” is likely to rank. The atmosphere crackled at the Opening accordingly. But the event in the former Berlin postal station Gleisdreieck was impressive and convinced even the skeptics.
This centrally located venue in the city proved to be a good choice. Architect Jan Ulmer ran through two of the huge historic halls a four-meter high wall with works by 130 artists. They all devoted themselves to the “About Painting”. As the title already had, not only paintings were on display, but also video works, photographs and installations, which dealt with the Urgenre of art. Rita Kersting and Marc Glöde presented a difficult curatorial task, they finally chose a topic widely interpretable. In fact, it was almost all work directly related to painting,
In the introduction to the catalog of “abc” Kersting writes: “In 2011, the painting may be seen for the first time again as an equivalent genre between the various disciplines of art, neither the queen nor as Cinderella.”
All the participants seem to agree that sales are not in the foreground. It is precisely in this year’s overall theme of the painting – and the artistic genre that is most likely to sell. With the title “about painting,” but also all other genera are discussed, so that a few video works, photographs, installations and sculptures can be found: A picturesque aspect can always be found.
Natural light floods through the glass roofs of the two single-storey buildings, which offer built-in by movable walls and cabinets isolated space for 130 artists. A curved white stripes on the paved floor, part of Ceal Floyer’s work, “Taking a Line for a Walk” from 2008 (at the Galerie Esther Schipper, Berlin), connects the two rooms of the exhibition. On the topic painting can be in front of the piecemeal screens with Sergej Jensen (Galerie Neu, Berlin) to think, before Ulla von Brandenburg’s beautiful “Forest (Orange),” whose contours were cut woodcut from a screen (Galerie Art: Concept, Paris, together with the co-operative gallery, Hamburg), and also at Sara Sizer, which creates its images by removing, by the natural canvas color or chemically bleached fibers extracted (with Andrae Kaufmann, Berlin, 3000 and 6000 euros).
