Dual DVI rules! :-)

I have a pleasure to finaly work - at work, on a dual screens so I didn't have enough time to make some of my new PP -ed photos. Now, I am taking you a few months back, on a location well known to all of you my friends. Ecka, Carska bara.

I made this work on a "clody day" for me, so the mood represents my temporary "state of mind". Birds are back, darky mood is here... I hope you like it.

Hi David

I like the warm cold colour contrast, between the reddish sepia toned vegetation, & the blue sky. The bird is a nice addition. Tfs!

Odlicna ideja i jos bolja realizacija. I naravno...misticna atmosfera :)

Good evening David

You have certainly managed to bring to life the distress of the day. Technically it is very good but to tell the truth with the prolonged winter and the cloudy days it is certainly not the best medicine :) The inclusion of the bird is a slight presence but an asset to the composition

Have a good sunny day, my friend

Zdravo Davide
Vrlo impresivna fotka iz prirode i ponovo sjajan dodatak iz tvoje "kuhinje"
Veliki pozdrav,Braca

Pozdrav Davide
Vratio si se malo na tamniju stranu.....
atmosfera je tipična i upravo svojstvena tvom veoma zanimljivom stilu..
Obrada je veoma odlično uradjena i pomalo me baca na razmišljanje nečega što nikad nisam smeo da uradim, a to je obrada u stilu "silent hill..a" ako si igrao tu igricu ,shvatićeš šta sam hteo da kažem...a upravo me je ovaj rad pomalo vratio na taj kolosek razmišljanja..
odličan rad..
puno pozdrava

Hi David,

HI David
Defiintely looks like a cold world, especially with spring looking more and more like winter.
The eagle or the hawk adds to the composition which is well done.
How lucky you were to have that bird show up while shooting. Well done

Hello David,

Maybe you feel cold but your photograph has definite warmth!
The aspect is very good with the focal point of the bird, high in the sky, looking down on the land-rooted bushes! The free versus the contained!

So many different ways you can interpret this!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

nice shot
colors are good
prespective is nice


nice shot with great colours.

Hello David
I'm later but I'm here.
Great low POV giving an excellent perspective from the life near the ground. The colours, the light, and the atmosphere are fantastic, and, as allways; «david mood» at is best.
Congrats my friend.
