Oh May....Awesome. Great work here and a very good title.


Hi Peter

An unusual shot. I like the high contrast & graphism. The blown out highlight doesn't bother me here. I like the red vs blue color contrast. Good work!

Ooooh! What have you done?
Old light and new light in a symbolic fusion over the eucalyptus? (Are they?)
It'll do for me. It's the right sort of mood.
Lovely frame, mister!

A HAPPY NEW YEAR, Peter, Thanx for the beauty, M, (*_*)

It's Wonderful. Ilike this play of lights and contrast between dark and orange sky in your picture

Great effect with that burst of light Peter, good PP work and great frame. All the best for 2006 and keep up the fluids in that heat, or move to Tassie we did crack 29 the other day :).

Hello Peter...
Different but beautiful... in fact quite awesome! The use of lighting is very cleverly done, with a wonderful effect!

Very impressive and creative work. I like the metaphore, and lets hope that light will pravail in 2006.

W-O-W!!! Stunning, breathtaking beauty!! The way the sunrays break so powerfully through the clouds...

First a very happy and healthy new year Peter for you and family.
Second, I like this shot very much, Peter. It has a great mood and for me that's one of the most important things in a picture.
Well done and tfs.



A beautiful and artistic shot here Peter. What drama it shows! A great mood shot indeed. I love it! Very well done.
Here's wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy 2006.

Superb image Peter. The drama, the colors . . . magnificent! Love the contrasts. Bravo!

Hello Peter!

That is a huge sun beam ! I love the framing and dark tones here. Very symbolic title and image. Well realized! Bravo! The addition of the silhouettes of the trees against the lighted horizon is a good choice too.

Finally, thank you for your kind words on Happy New Year to all .

Points tomorrow, as I am already broke ( again )!
