That is a superb surreal composition. I would hang that on the wall in my sitting room!!

I would hang it too. That literally took my breath away when I saw it. then, forgive me, I thought, "Did he photoshop that?????" A truly wonderful photograph. well done.

Beautiful image. I love art that uses nature to enhance it.

JM said...

This is stunning, although I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at... Is the background real and you've done the most amazing composition, or is the whole thing a painting? I think it's the 1st situation, but as Blognote and Virginia said they would hang it on the wall, I'm a bit confused now...

I had to look at it over and over again. Superb and surreal indeed! I wondered, as did Virginia, if you had created it in photoshop. But now I see what the work is and how it is placed, and how well you composed your shot. It's quite a piece.

Thank you Diederick & Virginia; just let me know if you need high-res version of this photo for printing.

Jilly, thanks so much for your comment and for your important remark.

JM; the back ground, the human figure and the statue is real. Glad you like it.

Thanks you for your generous comment Petrea, much appreciated.
