yes. i am thinking that the surreal aspect comes from the fact that the painted figure on the shed throws a shadow which is not far away from the real illumination on that afternoon. what annoys me here all the time that i could not avoid the overexposed spots in those clouds, even though i tried a lot. the recent camera would have handled it, i am quite sure about that.
you see, that's the difference between you and me. you think like a photographer (which is normal, you'd say) and i think like a... (a what, already?) i won't say a painter, i'm not, but those white spots don't bother me at all, in fact they respond quite well to the white of the shed. maybe i think in the terms of the image, simply. look at this yellow field! but mostly, look at this light! you're totally right about the shadows being almost the same, contributes to create the illusion of reality -still knowing it's not- this creates a "malaise" which works very well towards the subtle surreal quality of it. the only thing that bothers me is the grey color of the clouds above (of course, as a photographer, you got them right. i'm talking as a painter ) lol
well, i agree with most what you say here. but i make a difference between these sort of landscape shots which i like to be technically alright, even when the scenery is somehow surreal when it comes to abstracts, double and long exposures, this issue certainly is a completely different one. so maybe i am a borderline walker here
Die Champagne - so weit ist das ja nicht, schon gar nicht von Dir aus. Ich dagegen war ja sozusagen auf dem Rückweg - hatte nur mal kurz die Malerrolle und das Korsett ausgepackt hat viel potenzial für landschaften bei verschiedenen jahreszeiten wenn nur das licht stimmt !
a very strange hut ... it leads you to expect something will happen .. like Cary Grant running through the field pursued by a low flying crop duster... as you say
Great shot ! You have such talent
Belgium is a surreal place. I drove up there last week from France and they have started putting mannequins ahead of their roadworks again, wearing rubber gloves, and hard hats. I just love that country
- Yes. And some explosion rather than and exposition Thanks a lot for another compliment, Paula. Have a great weekend. I am sure the piers are awaiting you I agree totally about Belgium, but this is France here
