Love this - it's beautifully ethereal and otherworldly. But, if she's in the water with a dress that's going to get soaked anyway ... why the bikini top? It's quite bright, and draws my eye a lot. It also introduces an element of 'modern', whereas without it the image would be (for me, at least) ageless.
Life's not always fluffy and golden, and I think this image perfectly illustrates that. Yes, it's austere. Yes, it's a bit gloomy. But that's why I like it
I really like the way you've tied in the title with the way you've processed the image here. The soft focus of the shell of the building seems to indicate the past while the sharp details in both the girl and the field suggest the present.
Hah! Love the description That's the trouble with several people photographing the same scene at the same time - there's always going to be an element of similarity. But the differences come in the post processing, if nothing else.
Hmm ... with the right set of images, carefully considered, this could be a very interesting little programme to use, judging by your example. It's quite clever, in fact. I wonder what it would do with a landscape image as the 'master' and faces for the other supplementary images ... ??
Although I think that your composition is great, there's two things that (for me) would make me pass this image by in the gallery.
As Willie says, the lighting is inconsistent with the candle and could have been more subdued and subtle. I think the pose itself is fine - her hands have a good shape, and the clothing is dour enough to suit any era.
Hi Bill - even though you use everyday 'found' objects for your abstract still life imagery, I think that the way they're put together needs to somehow tell a story ... otherwise they're just a random collection of things with nothing to link them together.
