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 I’ve 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?

excellent.

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...

This has your signature in the style of the photo. Love the detail in the sky and the shadows from the trees that you cannot see. Looking at this I feel as if I would fall into the image. Magical work as always.

yeah, the slant of the trees are very unique seems like the photo is unreal, good idea to put the human there, or actually.. not put her there.. ha :giggle:
but only to take it when she was there, the scale you give is a good to get an idea of the monstrosity of the trees

While I like this very much, (that sky is seriously awesome) I dislike the distortion that is so apparent in the trees.

this reminds me of an impressionist painting, or perhaps a dream I had that those paintings themselves remind me of.

J'aime beaucoup le rendu de tes ciels et surtout des nuages qui prennent une profondeur incroyable.
Je suis un peu "dérangé" par la déformation liée au grand angle, on a l'impression que tout est aspiré par le centre.
