-The Swamp- by tacit-chaos -The Swamp- by tacit-chaos
.... I dont really know how I feel about this one.This was basically a practice of making my photomanips more realistic.
Maybe I should move this to scraps? :confused:

of course NOT D : I order you to show this masterpiece to the world.
oh my god I like this so much... really much
What can I say?
I love with all my soul the swamps and anything realted to them, I love the natural and relaxing scheme and atmosphere you gave it... it's wonderful.

also, you seem to fit each detail in the correct place, I say that because all "objects" are put in a perfect way so you can say without problems "this is NOT photomanipulation, this is a majestic swamp in which I would love to stay"

did I seem to fall in love with this < <?
great great job. ; )

exceptionally cool. i kinda thought it may be a manip, though i wasn't sure until i checked.

i think the thing that twigged my subconscious was the point, about a third of the way down where, on the tree's roots you can plainly see the color/darkness shift.

still, most excellent work. probably the best realistic manip i've seen.

Oh thank you so much! :) Yeah I know I messed up like a third of the way down. I didnt fix it because I wasnt expecting all this attention.

Well if you considered it practice << It was well practice because it got a lot of favs ^^ *Gives a cookie* :cookie:

I like the way it turned out, a bit fuzzy << but I think that adds to it in a special way so great work on photomanipulation. ^^

:icontacit-chaos:
tacit-chaos Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2005
Yes, that would be it. 5 different shots into one. Thank you. :heart:

You know what this puts me in mind of? That "three worlds" picture by M.C. Escher... not in style, of course, but in subject matter and elements... You've got the lily pads on top of the water, the fish under the water, and the sky and trees reflected off the water...

Very cool!
