This is beautiful. Graceful lines and classic composition. Almost lyrical in mood. Hard to believe it's a photograph. Great picture!

brilliant colours, but maybe slightly over-sharpened?

Thanks. i actually dislike over sharpened landscapes, so i try to avoid it, but maybe i ended up in the same category.
easily blinded when its your own work.
Long time no see, how is life?

Much better, thank you. And Yourself? Clearly still out and about I see.

As for the image, I'm afraid that we all do it sometimes - I know that I'm guilty of it with a lot of my own images, as we're often blinkered by pride in our work or a desperate need to show that we can capture detail too. Sadly, it's just a matter of practise to get it right, something that both of us shall some day achieve.

Great gallery btw, last time i checked it was very empty..
Like a Empty white room?

I think how life is depends on how you see it, it is rare that everything is good, but more then enough to appreciate life.

semi philosophical for a moment :iconicameplz:

Ooh, thank you very much (and for all the Favs) - I'm much more photographically active than I used to be, though I rarely submit anything here on DA.

As for life, I'm reminded of a peom by Samuel Coleridge:

The shadows dance upon the wall,
By the still dancing fire-flames made;
And now they slumber moveless all,
And now they melt to one deep shade.
But not from me shall this mild darkness steal thee:
I dream thee with mine eyes, and at my heart I feel thee


Although that's perhaps that's because I'm getting more and more obsessed with fire.

I thought this was a painting at first! Had to stare at it and then, when that didn't work, cheat and go down to the comments. So very good!

all your images have the same tones, i think its what i love about them. Do u use colour balance to get them or what? they also have this kinda glow tho, but are always clean and clear... what ever you do its great! :)

I play around with selective color, color balance, curves, until i like it.

haha thanks. There is defs a sorta 'fineness' to your work that mine hasn't yet reached, but I'm sure if I took the time to learn more I'd get there too. Plus I suppose everyone has different styles.
You keep up the good work :D

It's interesting... the sharpness of this makes it a little harder to perceive the depth, but that's part of the beauty, too, and how the eye wanders, trying to find purchase, and "gets lost in the woods."
