Very impressive composition. I like the dark colors. That's a little bit scary!

Impressive and powerful shot, Carmela ! which reminds me your TL post a few days ago. Same style.
I love the colours and the composition.

Gargoyle or Basilisk with an old watch tower and gloomy cloudy sky on BG. Great composition and quality. I love this picture.

Great point of view, and effective treatment, the gloomy light you've created for this series suites the subject well.

The low viewpoint and dark post processing work has created a very dramatic image.

A strong photo, I feel emotions. Colors, composition and close POV makes it very expressive.

Sans aucun doute c'est une grande composition.
L'animal nous mange, crève l'écran.
Vraiment très beau.

Great I like the atmosphere and the POV!

A great shot Carma! The way the background has been desaturated and the cloudy sky in the background makes it really dramatic.
JesusV (924) 2005-01-03 5:10
Great composition and POV combined with perfect postprocessing that enhances the dramatic feeling of the shot.
premels (2400) 2005-01-04 10:11
Wilderness and savagery are impressive in this close-up. The composition makes the beast a direct threat to the viewers. The dark sky just add to the threat.

Fantastique, cet animal semble jaillir sur l'écran, bonne idée de n'avoir gardé que l'animal coloré.

I just looks your album, it's very intersting ,because there is many diversity, i d like the paprika ( the colors are famous )
Concerning this one brrrrrrrr i hope i will not have bad dreams tonighht...

A stunning image! In here you have captured the image essence and its objective, the aggressiveness and power are well felt. Also an excellent PP work with the partial de-saturation. Still there are some blue lines surrounding the Dragon which can be eliminated. In the top of its head they are not visible and are fine.
kabe (2011) 2005-02-12 17:01
Very beautiful shot looks surreal.
I like it very much.
willis (24) 2005-04-07 20:30
Wow! How freaky is that dood!
Good thinking to get that angle. That beak almost looks like the jaws of hell. Very dramatic.
I would be interested to see it without the background desaturated for a comparison.

Love this shot. The background out of focus was excellent. The anger from this sculpture showed as well.
daddo (26156) 2006-03-28 4:47
Zdravo Carmela. You have created a truly menacing mood n this picture through the innovative use of colour and angle. You have brought the inanimate into the animate realm.Congratulations.
