Shot before Capa

By Eviscera
erm ,

Technically the hardest Ive done , running from the 200m end on a 10 sec timer to get to where the focus was set.

Then to sprawl in the leaves and get caught by light. I couldnt make it further...Shot by light , and spirits rise.

But the ambient was slow enough. Not a layer in sight.

wow
this is very special
I like both of the variants
dont think I have a favourite
now I can say I know a real time traveler,Smile Smile

now let me get this right ?
you were down in the woods,
sprawling in the leaves,
caching light that wasn't really there,
and photographing it all as well
listening to twilight music
and
you will say next:
you were chemically clean, ,lol

well worth waiting for this one Dave

Very successful experimentation Dave! I like the malestom of body movement very much, but also the way the light falls on those bare tree branches and twigs.

Or is there a time vortex in the woods?!

Hi Dave,
this is top work....i love how the body seems to have a mist rising from it and an atmosphere all of it's own and makes the woodland a different place from what it is in the second picture.......the light and effect is awesome and not a trick in sight...........well done on the runningSmile
