If we can't get into a bit of fantasy at our age, we've got no chance Wink

The colours and impact work well, to make it visually interesting.

Very nice work on this beautiful autumn scene.

This is wonderful Keith - kinda has an Alice in Wonderland effect.
Was this done with a blur tool? Very well done with everything zooming in on the man.

This is purely and utterly brilliant, Keith. It's like zooming out of a dream when you have to suddenly wake up to go for a wee in the middle of the night. Er...too much info there, methinks (just a wee bit).

I love this…it is indeed so poetic…technically is not perfect, but who cares? …we know that photography is not just a perfect technic…it’s much more than that…among other things it’s an expression of authors’ heart and soul… i.e. it is an art form, and that's what I see here …great shot & see you around EPZ
