I love the feel and mood of this piece. The detailing is so exquisite. It is truly expressive of the title as if the shadow is slowly swallowing the light and with it, joy as well. You accomplished a particular beauty, that's both dark and powerful.
I took this into Photoshop and greyscaled it.. removing colour forces the eyes to pay attention to the detail - and .. everything came to life. Sure, the ethereal sky and atmosphere is beautiful, but I felt there was still much more to see hidden behind the colour-use. Great work, Noah. .
