Webscape

By helenlinda
I am forever amazed at how many people will leave clicks and comments for flowers on this site. Thank you so much for yesterday's feedback.

I have spent so much longer preparing this image though and its going to appeal to a far smaller number of people, but I'm really pleased with how it has developed. It is another cobweb in Dad's shed and this time there are "bits" and "bodies" in it.
I've tried to develop a 3D feel to it.

So I want you to imagine you are out in space and this is a webscape you are flying through, being chased by some alien preditor. You frantically and skillfully manouver your craft to avoid these floating pieces of debris...............or.............. just imagine I've had a long day at work and I'm loosing the plot......whichever comes easiest!!!

Thanks for looking
Helen

Keep taking the tablets luv Wink
Actually it does look a little like something the Hubble telescope would photograph.
Great study of texture and light that looks even better large.
Did you get that everyone. GO LARGE!!

This is really inventive, Helen, and pretty scary as I loathe spiders! I love your "webscape" idea, though, it reminds me of numerous episodes of Red Dwarf!

This is fantastic, and in a sense it's related to yesterday's, the dark mysterious side of reality. Love the 3-D effect, detail suspended in space.

Great shot, lots of Yucky bits in there, certainly time for the space invaders to trek by.

I see your webscape Helen,but to me it is more of being in the deep recesses of a cave.The exit is a long climb tho'.Good imagination and vision here.

A wonderfully alien landscape. I was surprised to find your way out description pretty much describing what I had already seen in your image. Smile
Well done.
