Mystic Wood

By AngieLatham    
A more subtle manipulation than my usual work.
The background picture I have used here was taken on a very misty morning earlier in the summer.I have added the door from one of my many visits to various churches and used a leaf brush from CS2 to get the cascading effect.
Hope you like it Smile

I have really missed doing these mystical images over the summer.....wall to wall rain here on Mull today though, so what better way to spend a wet afternoon than getting back into practice.
Thankyou Jouko and Angie Smile

Cool pic! I like it! Good digital manipulation work. Well done! Just wondered if it would have worked better in Portrait format to give it length and put the door central of the frame? Just a thought! Otherwise a great well thought out shot! Well done. Shaun L

Hi Angie,

Sorry for my lack of comments. I've been taking a break for a while.

This is a great piece, well deserving of the praise. I love the ghostly atmosphere and superb presentation.

Brilliant work again. I must come back for a more detailed viewing.

Hope you are keeping well.

Take care,

Highly impressive, misty, tree-framed work of art.

The Gothic door, is very inviting, as well as very slightly sinister, with your photoart, Angie.

A worthy double-award and 141 likes.
Would make a very fitting mystery, or horror novel, cover!

Exquisite - and one of the most effective and atmospheric, of this style of photoartistic image.

Hi its been a while,what I love about this one is the fact you have no clue as to where it might lead you.Its left to us to decide if there is a wall in which the door sits,,,Very soft,gentle feel to it ,
Beautiful,,,Congats on the EC,,you deserve it.
