Thanks Ian that in itself is a compliment.

As you know I've been looking to develop this style for a while, I think in future I will be doing a lot more of these, and a lot less of my conventional stuff.

It's different and I like different. Well composited and an intriguing combination of image and prose. Looking forward to a continuation of the series, though keep us guessing and don't present them in a logical chronological order Smile
Love it!

Nicely processed work Nick, the track blends nicely into the layered fields and teddy looks too relaxed considering he is going to teddy heaven, possibly.
A good imagination needed to put all this together.

Loving it, Nick.

Great idea. Couple of things - not sure on the stubble field - I would have liked a more surreal hinterland...maybe sand, sand dunes and surely the dice should be double one - snake eyes.


still like it though.

A top notch photograph. Wonderful depth. A truly extraordinary image.

Cheers Keith, great points I would have marked constructive but it appears to have gone.

I like the idea of sand dunes, great excuse to go back to Spurn for the stock images. Again I like the idea of double six ( I did consider it) but chose the numbers as it was the norm in some of the old masters for the dice to signify either the birthday or year of birth of the artist - I also considers a third dice a bit removed from the other two - all sixes but thought it maybe to cliched.
