Re: Lighting the Way

Nice, but a little cluttered. There is no central focus. The candles are pulling too much of the attention away fromt the statuette. Are you up for a challenge? I really like that candle holder in the background, the one you use as your avatar. It plays really nicely into the theme of Jack Frost tr...

Paredoilia - Alien Lambling

Post Thanksgiving - cruising around the hood with camera in hand. This was a barren tree trunk (probably a Crepe Myrtle), but I see an alien creature crouching on the ground.

Haunting

One of those moments when camera blur has "ruined" an image. But hold on ........ colors, an eery feeling, hints of architecture and form. The haunting ambiance of this one caught me.
