Thank you all so much, when it comes to surrealism I sometimes have to pul myself away from the photo as I often get far to involved and put everything bar the kitchen sink in there.
Cheers Pete.

Hi Victor,I really think this is amazing,those floating cubes,the 3d,the faces all around them,the body on the beach and under the sea,Surrealism at it's best.The master at work.Genius.I think i will have to learn how to use Daz as well as photoshop that's the only way i can think for me to do anything like the floating cubes.Take care.AnnSmile
thankyou for your kind comments,much appreciated.

Thanks Julie and Ann, the cubes are produced in Bryce I then wrapped a photo of Dali, which I had saved out from PS as a pic file at 72dpi, around the cubes. This was rendered and then re imported into PS to be montaged with the other photos. Truth be told the longest part of this image was melting bottom right corner into the profile of the great man himself "Dali" paying attention to that famous mustache. Perhaps not that obvious at first but thats the fun of surreal images, the more you look the more you find.
Well away for a walk now before the next snow fall!!

It's a poor parallel Victor, since the two are poles apart, but it's similar to paintings by Canaletto, in that the more you look, the more you see, the fine detail he used, packed his paintings with an amazing amount of interest, just as with this, you need to study it carefully to see the vast amount of detail _you've_ packed into it. The Dali influence leaps out at you though, I bet one of your biggest problems is, knowing when to stop, LOL!
Superb, as usualSmile
Another week dawns and no doubt more amazing ideas and images from you, along with itSmile
