111 (who?)
Where are we going... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria Where are we going... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria
Where are we going?
How many ways do we have to explore?
Is there something new at the end??
Is there any end???

Only the immobile traveller knows the real distance and destination to his own self...
Shot last Thursday at 8:31 pm, around Toulouse, south-west of France, just before the sunset, on the road just behind my hotel. I took a walk before dinner and Ive been attracted by the fact that the shadows were very horizontal and so long, as if they were flying away from something or someone; I really like how the trees and their shadows seem to go in the same direction, and how the clouds seem to explode from the orient and go towards the setting sun, like an appeal and need for light...
Thanks to the jogging girl to give a human and scale touch to the scene...

As usual: Canon EOS 300D + Canon zoom 10 22 mm @ 10 mm... As usual: levels, contrast, clarity, noise reduction, crop and frame both with Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro...

smoothly and gently, my soul clouds fly against the afternoon winds...and which one will arrive first at the end of time? my rushing waters or your standing mountains? my silent wispers or your shouting leaves?

BTW, why do u mix two programs?
what PSP do that PS (cs 2?) can't? (there's some diffrences, I know.. but every edit & every saving do bad to the img quality..)
In fact, as I am totaly idiot about technique (!!) and I don't want to spend hours with complicate features, I do as simple as possible... So, for me, making a frame with Paint Shop Pro is easier than with Photoshop, because I've work first with it. But regading quality edition, like sharpening or saturation, clarity etc, I work with Photoshop. But I only work with Photoshop Elements!!! I prefer to spend time in artistic view or philosophy than in technique... By the way, I will post a journal about my way to make pictures a soon as possible...
