This snap is shiite, Photosam....have you no shame?

Just Kidding...of course!

The tree trunks remind me a little of the unique style of Pro Hart...a very fine Australian artist who died recently. And...I am always a sucker for a lane that curves out of sight, so I have to imagine what comes next.

A beautiful, detailed lino-cut!
Samarth: thank you very much ray...

Wow, this is simply wonderful - shadows, compo, strange and muted colors , mystery - makes me wonder, by the way "where are we going"..!? Sure, it's not the wrong way !??

Sam, at the risk of causing irreparable offense i'm going to ask; is this a photograph any longer?
Samarth: no, don't worry - i wouldn't take such great offense at a comment...
i think images like this - - no longer retain their "photograph" quality but i don't think ive crossed any lines with this one..
I have no idea what you have done here Sam feels like a page from a graphic novel??
Samarth: smile

What are you talking about Sam - this is some fantastic (LOTR resembling) work here! You need more self confidence while facing the grumpy critic tongue Finally a fantastic choice for HDR (?) Perfect lighting for it - great job.
Samarth: ::grin
Absolutely stunning. You managed to get everything perfect in this shot. The road leads you into this great picture and the framing with the trees is awesome. Excellent image.
Samarth: thanks a lot john...

Nice almost graphic quality to this one Sam. It could be an illustration from a book of fairy stories. I'm not sure if it is inviting or menacing.
Samarth: thanks catalpa...
