This is absoluteness beautiful and one of the best things I've ever seen


My jaw just dropped like an inch! Wow that is amazing. This does NOT look like a canvas painting but an HDR photo. The atmosphere, with the girl, I can almost feel the autumn cold and still there is her facial expression. At first I thought it was a smirk, but then I looked again and sensed fear. What has she seen, sensed that we do not see in the image? What is causing this... dread? The more I think about it the more I want to know, the more I fantasize, the more afraid I become! Excellent! An amazing piece. My only wish is that you had added some contrast after you had transitioned the image to digital format as the photo has desaturated it a bit (I assume) such that the blacks are now a bit too light grays. However, this is nitpicking as the piece overall is beyond... amazing! Well done.

Best regards,
Dr. Emil Al├ęgroth

Thank you for the thoughtful reply! There's definitely something out there, scuttling around in the leaves. She hasn't spotted yet, but it's making too much noise to be the wind.

I probably could have bumped the contrast up a little...but sometimes when you do that, you lose the medium tones. She's kinda pale as it is...

Awesome work. :)
