I know, I’ve been away a while (AGAIN) and I was not sure if I will be able to be with you for some time, but definitely decided to come back.

Another HPP(x2), another bad episode in my life (fortunately with happy end), and now, bad weather to fulfill my story I would like to present to you.

This time PP –ed artwork was made from a three “main” photos of mine and, many, many layers of brushes, stock images, plugins and actions. To be honest, do not know exact “statistics” but definitely so many micro stories to make this one.

Have a nice day all! :-)

P.S. Yes, its me on the photo.

Hello David
This is an excellent Artwork i'd say!
Just looks like a painting

Nice work mate!


Bonjour David
A great artwork indeed.I like it ;I like the mood; one of your tops for me
just this, for me the title in the picture eats a part of the concentration your work needs.
however , worth more than two points of course

Absolutely delightful David. A project worthy of admiration. Regards...

Hi David,
Do not be worry, many of us, we are missing time! It is great for us that your inspiration is strongest! Creation is always an urgency for an artist!
You did this beautiful artwork so cleverly!
The ambiance is strange and intriguing. Excellent HPP work, as usual! Usual but also always with a different way!

Wonderful art work David,
I love the «distant look» you show us in this David portrait in is own «David wonderland». Great work, as always very suggestive in the visual and in the narrative level.
Cheers, mb

Uhhh... predpostavljam iz rada da si bio u teškoj situaciji,ali mi je drago ako si je prebrodio,aaaa štoo se tiče samog rada ,ona zaista pokazuje tvoja osećanja ,vrlo emotivno,a u istu ruku i jak snažan rad...obojica znamo koliko je potrebno volje i srpljenja sa ovakvim tipovima rada ,....i onaj ko nije uradio nešto sa više lejera možda i ne razume tooo..
Ok u stvari i ne treba ,bitan je krajnji rezultat ,a to je ovaj tvoj odličan rad...
puno pozdrava dragi moj druže....

Hello David!
Great effect and nice PP work!
Excellent composition, again!
Best regards!

Hello David

This is a masterpiece..............TFS


Hi David
wonderful artwork
great composition in special David mood
I know.....!

Odlicna kompozicija...
Samo ja bih za nijansu smanjila saturaciju...ili je to navika od Master Jozefovih slika da boje budu svedene i tamne...Ne znam ni sama....ali u svakom slucaju prica je kompleksna i duboka...

Hi David,
fantastic PP work.Like a dream.TFS.Necla.

Very different picture, David.
Pity the tekst halfway the picture in not to my taste.
Too much and eye trekker, lower and less bright would have been better, right ?
Cheers from Jan

Bonsoir David,

Nice paintwork effect. It's to go behond realism and to express our imagination true art, photography included. I am not into that kind of image production, but I do appreciate when I can see some. Really nice work and TFS.

dear David,
an impressive timeless image of the sky and the wood,
and you and birds look symbolic characters in that illusional space.
maybe all are fragments of unfinished stories in your mind, those meanings look being not so bad and not so good for you...
most beautiful contrast is in classic colors between blue and orange, those are quite like in old Renaissance paintings. it is my favorite.
imaginative moon watching the struggle between white bird and black bird, those are behind you, but you don't notice that directly.
whole dim feeling is excellent.
thank you,

  • Great

HI David
Definitel a moody shot, you have created an outstanding shot with your pp, which is truly super.

Bonjour David.
L’image mérite que l’on s’arrête pour voir le résultat obtenu par ce post-traitement intéressant.
La composition est intéressante mais j’aurai éventuellement mis un peu plus de luminosité,
Félicitation pour ce bon job.
Bonne soirée.

Hi David,
Great fanatastic work...
Nice colours and details.
Dynamism is excellent.tfs.
