Daily Deviation

Given 2006-01-23
:: Dark Days :: by *GVA I like it, it reminds me of "Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog" by Kasper David Friedrich. A good portrayal of the untamed power of nature! ( Suggested by Dibi and Featured by garrit )

wow. very expressive shot. it seems to be scary somehow due to the clouds in the background. clouds and the hill...they're so big, and the man on the peak so small. i like the contrast, and actually it shows what we really are in the world. we're small, but have a lot of power ;-)

I really like the composition: the white clouds, layered between the rocks and the sky, the silhouette adding scale.

How did you manage to blackout the upper and left part. I understand that the hill is black because its againt the light, but the other parts...? did you use the brush in Photoshop?

it's a mixture of lighting effects in Photoshop and contrast adjustments. it creates some nice effects when working with clouds.
