OK, we are continuing where I stopped a week and a half ago - my, as Jose would say, “apocalyptic landscapes”. :-)

I will get bac soon with one PP –ed self-portrait and another “hard core” photo manip, but ‘till then I hope you enjoy this one like I do.

I really love this work. It was made at a same day as some of sweet shots like The Cheerful Birth, but on a different altitude and a little bit different sky (and mind) conditions… :-)

I am talking about Kosmaj mountain peak and all the magic it brings…

What a beautiful natural view, David! Well composed, good light, nice colors and details. Fine presentation. Congratulations and TFS, mate!

Greetings from Brazil,

Hello David,
Welcome back with your regular artworks. :) Moody photo filled with silence and emptiness. The areoplane stripes on the sky are interesting elements of the composition. Well done PP work, keep it up, waiting for the others! ;)

Zdravo David,

:):):) zaista???? Self???? :):):) Kada? Nadam se uskoro. OK, a sada...kritika. Muahahahahah...:) sorry, danas sam bas dobre volje.

Odlicna fotografija...nebo izgleda fenomenalno...odlican kontrast izmedju neba i zemlje ili mozda izmedju zivota i smrti...sjajan rad.

Puno pozdrava,

Dje si care...
Odlican artwork kao i uvjek...
Veoma lijepe boje, a posebno mi se svidjaju ovi tragovi aviona na nebu...ovdje su dali bas pravi efekat fotki...

Hello David,
The streaking clouds certainly adorn the frame beautifully. Yes in a way this is apocalyptic. The curvaceous capture of the dirt road enhances the composition. Regards...Danilo

Hi David,

the tiltle really attracted my attention as much as this outstanding presentation, the mood, the silence, the warm light..the total mystery in this place, the sky... what a sky with those sharp lines as if dividing it into shapes and colors... a magical composition indeed!

my compliments and best regards

Hi David,
beautiful lines on the sky.Perfect work.I liked tittle also.Congratulations.Necla.

Hello David,

Another fine presentation in your own inimitable style.
The golden path focusses our attention, despite the vertical twigs to bar our way!
It is a lonely landscape but how interesting that the line of one of the aeroplanes appears to be converging with the path. Is there a story here?

There is a little pixelation in the sky which can easily be removed with the blur tool.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Pozdrav Davide

Hi David!
Beautiful view, atmosphere and colors. I like the "contrast" between the peaceful land and the busy sky.
Nice picture, good title.

Greet David!

Very curious , plane highway :)
Pretty colours and light.
It pleases me.

I congratulate realization and I greet.


Outstanding David, absolutely outstanding! I love every aspect of this shot, including the clever title. The tones, silhouettes, text, presentation and especially the mood are all flawless and extravagant. Almost as if all the things that make a great shot have come together to make one remarkably beautiful one. The road reminds me of the yellow brick road from The Wizard of Oz, lol. A very impressive post.

Hello David
Wonderful image very well composed with a fantastic contrast between the peaceful ground with great warm colours and a pacific and peaceful way, and the sky captured as if it was happening a crossfire between invisible enemies.
Of course the emptiness in the ground emphasises that contradictory war scenario.
Great work again, congrats, mb

Hi David

For some reason, this shot reminds me of the American wild west, more than it does of Europe. Fantastic sunset colors & contrasts. I like the silhouetted bird at right. Tfs!

dear David,
this cool feeling like waste land scene is very stimulating to me.
“apocalyptic landscapes” in your note, and "Where The End Begins" of your title tell us very well the suggestive mean in it. your eyes, your visual sensation feels another hidden meaning in common view like this, and you succeed to enhance it in this work.
in my feeling, maybe it is a huge complex of anxiety and desire...
thank you,
P.S. I'll post my “apocalyptic landscapes” image to your WS post. please enjoy it.

very natural landscaping with wonderful lights and colors.the title is amazingly wonderful.colors and lights are lovely so is the composition.TFS

Ola David,
Superbe,very beautiful,well done.Congratulation.

Hola David.
Una interesante imagen donde la "casualidad" de las líneas marcadas por el paso de los aviones a gran altura se auna con el resto del paisaje para convertir el paisaje en algo más inquietante si cabe.
Original disparo amigo.
Un cálido saludo, JL.

Thanks for your comment on my picture I posted here ages ago, David & Natasha.
I have had a quick look at your portfolio and was devastated by the appeal of your landscapes.
Will see some of them with greater concentration later.
This one is just beautiful.
Whatever heavy post-processing you have done on it goes well with me.

Olá David

Cenário interessante e belo.
Cores magníficas.
Ótima composição.
Parabéns pelo trabalho.

Hi David,
This is some great artwork. Nicely composed with AWESOME lighting, TFS Julie

100 points for you. tfs!

hello David
thought, composition and result very well, I am not this aesthetic "photo" logic, but I approve

the composition of diagonal lines and contrasting colours at the "right" time of day make this a great image.
Keep up the good work!
