As wonderful as it is to put filters on a photo, I don't think this deserves a DD.
Hear me out.
This piece reflects a lot of minimalistic qualities about it, and would make for a wonderful background on a computer, but I feel it doesn't go further beyond that.
Of course, because this piece is so...ambiguous in its meaning, the piece is open to different interpretations of its meaning and reason. I feel the stock photo hold much more artistic value (in terms of at-first-glance interpretation), despite the piece being possibly deeper than what it seems to be.
I might be wrong of course, with the difficulty of using programs may be high, but I think it's somewhat juvenile. If I knew I could achieve deviant recognition by putting (what I wrongly assume to be) filters and crops on a photo, then I would be swimming in DDs.
Criticism is essential to everything, otherwise nothing will improve.
The piece is marvelous in its simplistic beauty. But I wouldn't give it a DD. That is my opinion.
