the image is remarkable,.....very creative, but by adding those words you gave it a timeless sense of wisdom.

It's definitely an excellent idea, and I love the pastel colours you've used in it. It's very simple and minimalistic too, which really reinforces the message. The clouds and the lighting look completely natural, as do the reflections, but the tree looks kinda odd. The shape of it's great, and using a dead tree instead of the obvious summery tree keeps the colour scheme intact, but the top half looks so unreal because of the colouring of it. And not unreal in a "cool, that's so surreal" way, but in a way that takes you out of the setting and ruins the mood, almost (although not quite; the rest of the picture is too fantastic for it to be completey ruined). The swing doesn't seem tied on properly either, but I guess that's a pretty hard detail to perfect.
Overall though, great job, and fantastic vision.

I'm less touched by manipulated photos, may be I've forget the child in me, or my dreams, but I like this one. Good work on the light and recadring. Feel lonely.
Sorry to be the naked man walking on the sea, who turned back from the swing...

Thanks so much for your interest!
Until the end of december certain prints are cheapened. Go here to see if yours is part of it. If not, note me, and I'll reduce the price for you :) :hug:

Thanks again.

sweetturninsour Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2003
Great job... I went to the park today and played on the equipment with a friend in between shooting photos... it was exactly that-finding the inner child.. it was quite fun! (I'm under 20.... but... yeah, I don't do stuff like that it was different for me)..
gajdi Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2003
beautiful.. gorgeous shadows and light:) and this mysterious swing.. Very sad.. I'll try not to loke this little boy inside me.. Great work!

Great atmosphere in this one again. The light gives it a really desolate feeling.

Beautiful piece and wonderful description, and I totally agree. If you lose the child in you, I think you miss out a lot of things in life.......Keep up the great work!
mizarek Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2003

I love this shot, it is extreamly beautiful and the imagery I get from it is intense. I like the relationship between the water and the swing... It's almost like there is not much time left to capture your childhood before it disappears forever.

Welcome to my favorites gallery. It's a lovely idea, and a lovely execution too. I would love to swing there, but I'm not fit to dream of it.

oceanborn Featured By Owner May 5, 2003
For whatever reason...I didn't click on this thumbnail in my +devwatch. I couldn't see the swing in the small thumbnail, was was just like "oh...another DTF from seafairy because she could make anything and get tons of faves - today she stuck a tree in some water" I didn't look at the actual image. Shame on me! :P (Lick) Do you ever submit bad manips? Nope.

Man...glad I did finally click on this though - it's so concept and visually. Great lighting effects...all around the tree and through the swing. I definitely do not like the grainyness to this however - It's just not enough to look intentional, even though you said it was.

Phenomenal image. :-) (Smile)

For some reason I'm not getting the discriptions with the pix so I'm just trying to guess your visions. I think when I view pix through the VIEW3 MORE DEVIATIONS path the discriptions don't come up but I love this

Cute. Nicely done.
takelife Featured By Owner May 3, 2003
I agree with the grain comment, but downsized it looks wonderful and I'm sure it would print nicely :) (Smile) The swing looks like it's in motion.
sugar Featured By Owner May 3, 2003
nice idea, too much grain though...
and the lights seems kinda weird in some places on the tree..

otherwise, good job
zekzo Featured By Owner May 3, 2003
