Lower jaw hits floor....kerplunck!

The Pixie, skipping along beside the lumbering Oaf, is making her way up the barrel of the Hunter's rifle...let's hope her curiosity is satisfied before the hunter sights the deer he needs to bring down this morning to feed his starving children...
Petra: Lol....your imagination makes me smile Ray! grin Thanks for sharing!!

"...holy smokes...", I silently whispered, when this appeared on the screen, "she didn't lie to us. Pegasus and the Muses did pay her visit the other day. How else would you explain this?"
Petra: Have you any idea how many ideas and how long the inpiration of the muses will last Viktor? I certainly appreciate what they brought
Thanks for you comment...

Petra: Thanks Rab....maybe you should read what Louis has written today on this
That is a really brilliant effect. Black and white was certainly the way to go Petra.
Petra: The B&W gave the image much more impact Chris...glad you agree!
That's just great, this effect, like a tunnel, like a dream in a tunnel, like a vision... I can't really see well, are they going to the light, or to me... Well done Petra... very, very interesting effect.
Petra: Thanks Flo...they are going to the light...
Ghost moovie, creative idea I've got to try that !!
Petra: Try it Z. Its so much fun!

Petra everybody before me I agree with their comments, een geweldige foto, zo mysterieus, trouwens het was een lange tijd geleden dat ik het woord 'grutjes' weer eens zag, zie Louis.
Wat was je sluiterijd en lensopening?

Groetjes Petra

Dit is een sprookjesbos, een betoverede omgeving die de mensen omvangt, en ik kon enkele verhaaltjes verzinnen, maar ik weet nog niet of het uitsluiting goed of boos is.
Petra: Depends on your own mood if it is going to be good or bad i think Philine...dont you agree? Thanks for your lovely comment!

Simply beautiful! Great technique, and I think that B&W was a wonderful decision.
Petra: Thanks Lesley...the colour version had not half as much impact as B&W i think...

Amazing, and wonderful.

How do you mean you twisted the camera? Was it on a tripod?
I love the swirling vortex effect you have here. Like walking into another world.
You did it again: wonderful!
