I wanted to wait untill my first 100 photos to present my new TITLE signature and website watermark but after reading few great classic horror stories from a master - H.P. Lowecraft, I needed to let this out of me. :-) Insted of posting few new colorful and light photos, today I will post something I made this morning.

"Beyond the Wall of Sleep" is one of many great horror stories from a Lovecaft and this is my contribution to this addorable novel and to all of you who love classical horror.

And something else, so I wouldn't be misunderstood - all I am saying about Lovecraft is his genius fiction and nothing else. Perhaps someone know what I mean.

"...as light beings within the realm of sleep, humans can experience the vistas of many planes and universes which remain unknown to waking awareness..."

Hi David

I like the repetitive, veined pattern formed by the branches. The eyes in the sky add a surreal touch, although I'm undecided about what looks like a coffee stain. Have a great Easter!

once again another enchanting shot my friend you have made this very atmospheric grt work tfs
regards bryan

Very interesting bit of pp work here David - I like the veiny look of the branches against a very interesting BG..

Nice dreamscape!!

HI David
I gather the large stain is supposed to be blood.
The pps is effective creating a deep dark mood with those trees and the birds.

zdravo david,
povtorno odlicna fotografija, vo koja e manifestirana golema kreativnost i perfekcija
pozdrav, biljana

Zdravo Davide
Polako prolazi vreme ogoljenog drveća,...u suštini volim toplije dane ,ali onaj ambijent koji se napravi sa možda naizgled nezanimljivom tematikom golih grana...se retko postiže kada sve procveta...
upravo je tvoj rad pravi primer onoga o čemu pričam...
mnogo mi se svidja plava nijansa...što bi rekli,lepo je legla...
sjajan rad
puno pozdrava

hello David,

gorgeous work you did here.. this could be the cover of horror novel.. :) i love reading horror novel but the problem is i have no time to read it now.. it took me longer to finish reading one.. not like last time..

back to your work.. love the moody feeling it created here.. good one..

regards, terry

Hello David,

A good atmospheric shot, definitely from your camera!
I like the web-like texture of the trees, the washed tones of the sky but am not sure about the blobs in the sky.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Congratulations for 100th post. Good pp work. Excellent creation.

Zdravo, Davide :) (kolega Ovan ili možda Bik? - i ja sam aprilsko dete :)))

Fantastičan rad koji odiše mističnom atmosferom. Izuzetna kompozicija i prelepe prigušene boje. Naročito mi se dopada kombinacija sa pričom, bravo!


Hello David!
Excellent PP work!
The silhouette of the trees, the face on the sun, dirty effect, the title on the image, all just great!
Best regards!

Hi David
This one makes me happy for two reasons:
- the first (of course) your great art work with the trees workin like the net of the dream world - simply superb the sharpness of the trees against the dark blue of dreams;
- the second the reference to Henry Philip Lovercraft (died with 30 years more or less) but with a fantastic work that I'm a great admirer - the tales are great specialy the «demons of Randolf Carter» but his romance (the only as I know) «The Charles Dexter Ward case» (original american titlle)is realy a masterpiece.
So, once again, congrats my friend.

Ciao David,

Sure, your post is much difference in the color of my exaggerated, they are softer, more discreet.
