I always think those butterfly pictures are beautiful but sad so it fits really well into the rest of the image. Lots to think about here Victor. The light and shadows are superb.
Hope you're doing OK.

Powerful and emotive imagery; the butterflies pinned just as the spirit is trapped. And yet there is a real haunting beauty, too, with the light among the soft jade green. Thought-provoking.

Hi Victor
Another stunning image from you. Sorry I haven't been on line much recently but have been very busy. I was looking at the new Sigma sd14 to be released in March - what do u think about this. Have you looked at the spec etc.

well deserved The HC masterpiece in Art and opening the viewer to psycho analysis the piece..
from the Tags l would say the butterfly is symbolic of the cause of the depression, nightmare and isolation, in relation, human fragility, and the human element is a comparison to the life circle of the butterfly.. emotional coldness, uncaring.not understanding/ or feelings of compassion... l see so much in this piece.

its very provoking and the mood is depressing..!!!

brilliant the colour with clouds the revolving of mood & thought. The butterfly picture, for me depict the trapped box that society confins us all in. The need to escape is so well defined with the pose of the figure. Living in a box....

Thank you all very much. Cheers Pete, appriciated.
I was going to give an idea of my thoughts behind this one but there is several comments that are not that far of the mark and sometimes its best to take out of something what YOU want and not what I perhaps intended.
The main purpose with all these images is to make you think, all to often we go through life with out eyes shut and see nothing, but with me its only when I shut my eyes that so many things become come into focusm wither I like them or not!!!!
