I think about this in my circa 1860 house-- wonder what it thinks of the computer, etc. An image that give one LOTS to think about as well as a worthy vision! LOVE this one!

An excellent contrast in this old 'hobbit' house. I prefer her back to be closer to the left frame, but that is just a preference. This is a painting that leads one to muse and think. Excellent. TG

A great image Neil, one which could quite easily become drawn into, a somewhat memorising feel, superbly processed, and an image which lends itself to many possible narratives.

You've given a lovely atmosphere to the image with your processing, Neil, and the modern contradiction is excellent.



Super shot Neil. I love the colours and tones in this - and it is quite unusual not to be able to see the models face, but it works for me. I like the treatment of the photograph and the details that it has brought out. Would hang this on my wall!

9 Sep 2012 - 10:55 AM

stark contrast of old and new Neil but well processed love it, would look great on any wall

Her upper body seems almost ghost-like, Neil, which is somewhat appropriate in the setting.

Well captured. Makes you think about the youth. She is surrounded by history and interest but still the mobile phone is her first concern. Youth, they are all the same. God I sound old!!! Smile Great image and well spotted Smile

The disparity of the girl and her surrounding is well portrayed in this interesting image, Neil. Well seen and captured.

The image evokes the feeling of time travel, and perhaps the phone is used to make the girl travel? Who knows......in time.....

like it and the idea of contrast which is well dramatized; maybe, maybe: too much processing, girl too much centralized?
