A beautiful serene scene Alan, love the processing. Top notch matey
Alan you're a born artist.
Like a summer's dream. This is definitely a first class image, and a notch or two above a photograph.
The movement suits the subject well having a light dreamy quality that encapsulates a summers day. The muted colour palette works well with the dark band at the top contrasting nicely. Altogether a first class image.
A fine shot Alan.
No need to up the auntie on this one,
so it is Bobs your uncle here !!
This one's a work of art Alan. Wish it where mine.
Lovely image, reminiscent of Monet...
Very dreamy, Monet style. You have an eye for what works.
Excellent Alan looks like a painting, reallly, really like this
Prettier, more pictorial, less immediately dark than your recent work. There's a spring-like feel. But random shadows pass over and there's darkness above and beyond. We don't know what lies beyond the patch of sunlight.
It reminds me of St Paulinus as reported by Bede:
Quote: When we compare the present life of man on earth with that time of which we have no knowledge, it seems to me like the swift flight of a single sparrow through the banqueting-hall where you are sitting at dinner on a winterís day with your thains and counsellors. In the midst there is a comforting fire to warm the hall; outside the storms of winter rain or snow are raging. This sparrow flies swiftly in through one door of the hall, and out through another. While he is inside, he is safe from the winter storms; but after a moment of comfort, he vanishes from sight into the wintry world from which he came. Even so, man appears on earth for a little while; but of what went before this life or of what follows, we know nothing.
So you are 'into' flowers now, too. . . . .
Light, dark and in-between. Mysterious.
Monet would fill the canvas with pastels - can't imagine you doing that, Alan. The horizontal bands work really well with the vertical movement adding texture. I find myself looking intently into the dark area and enjoying the flicks of reflected light from the flowers that stretch away into the shadows ( reminiscent of star gazing - at first it's all black, then gradually you see more and more stars).

It does a play of light perhaps and makes the eyes travel.. from light to darkness and they perhaps find peace with that half lit patch of grass in the middle.. an image to explore.. the rendition of texture is such that every part of it becomes a matter of inspection.. even as, what is it more than a patch of flowers and grass.. a fine composition and everything else takes it to the high.. it is an inspiration in the way that what a simple, mundane and seemingly ordinary segment can be turned into by using all the weapons of photography.
I get the impression you like these The beautiful pastels travel across the image in dips and waves. I like these too
