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.

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
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
