It's that easy.
I'm still amazed by this shot... and I still don't know how you make this images, really.
Hey, I read your goodbye on Flickr. Very intelligent and touching. So glad you are still on 500 : ))
This is amaing. I have no idea how you do this and I am totally jealous... LOL
Well - I'm going to have to let you out of detention for that beautiful explanation! LOL! I should have known that there would be more than one metaphor in your imagery....your work is always so profound and so well thought out - an intellectual artist who produces inspirational work. Im always looking forward to seeing your work - you have a real signature to your use of colour and the way you use it to capture the mood of an image.....and as I review this image again (now that I know the genesis of the title and the shaking of the tree metaphor) it communicates even more to me on second viewing.
As I said before David, this is great work.
I am afraid you have some explaining to do here my friend. Everytime I see your work I feel a great connection to it.
I believe it is the colours that drive this feeling, that is your ability to use light and colour to evoke emotions. I have to say that your message got through loud and clear with this shot.
Here I am relaxing for a few minutes and admiring this miraculous image. To start with this is a very beautiful and simple composition, secondly the colour enhanced by the lighting really gives life to the image. And then the treatment of the movement does indeed look like flames but for me the impression is one of heat rising rather than falling rain...but the magic of true art is that it means different things to different people.
So, as I said, I need an explanation.....I want to switch the DVD to watch 'the making of' LOL! Did you go out with this end result in mind or were you experimenting with things when you got back and liked this the best? As always, you've left me wanting more!
Great work my friend! True art!
