Holy smokes, Petra. Do you take painting classes? This one is unreal. I promised to myself not to use the devalued words "moody" and "atmosphere" to describe a photograph, so I won't.

If you ever get around to running a web-based Master-class on how you achieved this astonishing image, then I would like to attend.
It is like an artist's impression of scenes from several fantasy stories I have read over the years.

Very mysterious image. I agree with VZ and ray - the effects on this photo are wonderful and very unique.

Yes, an impressionistic painting-photo- with a flirring springtime-feeling! Heel mooi!
Youv'e been jiggling that camera around again havent you? Multiple exposure? Either way stunning result.
Just wonderful. Looks like a painting! Great job

I hope you don't mind saying this in Dutch....mijn hemel, dit is gewoon geweldig, met grote verbazing heb ik hier naar zitten kijken, geweldig, zou je mij het geheim kunnen verklappen? This is one of those picture I can keep staring for a long time over and over again.... mijn complimenten, ik zie dat Philine ook gereageerd heeft, die kan van dit soort foto's ook geweldig genieten smile

I think I can now unravel the mystery for myself - how you do it. Now I must try and find an opportunity to apply it an see if I can get similar results.

Excellent and it does have a surrealist painting feeling about it. But knowing that it is not a painting is what I find so exciting.

This is one of the most beautiful and expressive images I have seen in a long, long time.

Ach, m'n ziel is louter klanken
In dit uur van louter kleuren;
Klanken, die omhoge ranken
In een dolle tuin van geuren.
(Paul van Ostaijen, 1916)

It's a truly beautiful picture Petra, I like the gorgeous friendly green colours and the light in the distance - at the end of the tunnel. The affect you've used is rather wonderful too. You're so clever. smile

Man! Am I ever glad I didn't miss this one, Petra. It's as astounding as everyone has said! Wow.
You have achieved a superb effect here, Petra. I wish I'd taken this one!! smilesmile
Probably your best work we have seen grin
Petra: Thank you very much for your very kind words!!!
Much apreciated ...
The scene itself is one of those you could just walk into. The treatment you have given it lifts it out of the ordinary.

This is one that I can see printed large, framed sympathetically and adorning the walls of a decent gallery.

Just one thing to criticise? No - not a thing.
