Très belle photo, toujours dans l'esprit des précédentes. Pour ma part, je pense que le N&B aurait intensifié le moment. Mais en tout cas, cette couleurs sépia donne très bien.
olli (2091) 2004-03-26 4:07
Again – great combination of excellent subject and excellent post-processing technique.
Almost like painting. Great work.

Great shot, of a great moment..congratulations.
cool_s15 (4050) 2004-03-26 4:24
Wow again a beautiful moody shot! I can see how lonely the boy is. Great atmosphere of mountains, grassland and espacially a small hut far away. Very well done. You're skillful as well. Hope to see more!
robbertjan (2906) 2004-03-26 4:42

Rhiannon (1728) 2004-03-26 5:21
WOW! A beautiful picture and I like the "special effects" a lot. They really add to this photo. Feels like a scene from a movie or something. (The first that got on my mind was a scene from "Gladiator")
Perfcet composition and post pro work.
reignzoz (16) 2004-03-26 6:30

allotfy (1525) 2004-03-26 7:03

timotey (119) 2004-03-26 7:32
Amazing colours for this so well framed picture. Lights are fabulous, details are well rendered and an overall balance giving to this shot a great aspect.
Jeppe (18654) 2004-03-26 8:02
Wow - You surely made this photo special - quite a technique - Very well done Riba - I like the soft light - its what made the photo something.
I wonder how the original photo was - you could for instance post it as a workshop.
electro76 (460) 2004-03-26 9:13
Le ton sépia donne un effet très particulier à cette photo. J'aime ebaucoup!!!
pascalbene (1717) 2004-03-26 10:12
The beginning of a fairy. This pic could easily illustrate a book. Very well done. Congratulation Riba.
maciekda (19895) 2004-03-26 10:39
wow, what a beutiful picture... gret composition - the road starting from bottom corners, the kid looking somewhere... gret post processing, very moooody picture, really nice
manny (21833) 2004-03-26 12:24
This is very very uniquely beautiful. I like the effect of the orange tone and the brightness of certain part. It is a work of art. The boy in the picture added a touch of humanity in this already heartwarming picture. Great shot!
ninadev (5377) 2004-03-26 12:25
Wow, surreal colors. The way the boy stands, he looks worried as he looks to what is at the end of the road. I love the light on the maze on the right side of the road.
Eagle78 (1933) 2004-03-26 13:01
!!!!!! Wow...your work is stunning..this look like a painting to me! Really wonderful efects. I know it´s not a very natural image but this work is superb, as your previous posts. You opened new horizons to me :)
BHo (2177) 2004-03-26 14:15
At first glance the photo looks 3D'ish. Some nice post-processing work done here. Very nice tones among all the elements in the photo. The boy makes the photo interesting because he seems to be curious as to what lies ahead in the distance.
kmolz (997) 2004-03-26 14:25
Wow, wow, wow, such a great composition and great effects, that it seems made or taekn from a movie... WELL DONE!!!
bfly (5775) 2004-03-26 16:35
I am so exiced to see this picture..it is artwork for me that I really envy..very neat and perfect post processing that it becomes almost a painting...but I can still see the photgraph...I think you are a wizard in this...
Zanni (6108) 2004-03-26 17:00
What can I say? You are a surrealist Maestro.
cxxl (2684) 2004-03-26 19:06
Sensation Riba. Very well exposed and composed. Excellent work.
eleparc (24063) 2004-03-26 20:59
Riba è una foto splendida!non so come l'hai fatto ma sono realmente impressionato! bravissimo!
This is a superb shot! I don't know how you managed it but I am impressed;-) bravo! out of points today
flamingo (109) 2004-03-27 23:26
This could be the village that my grandfather was from. The boy seems hesitant and the tone is threatening.
summer89 (5422) 2004-03-28 9:43
Whar a shot Riba .
Amazing tunnes of color. Perfect composition.
Very well done
Riz (0) 2004-03-28 17:12
a wonderful picture, I love your style you create excellent work your one of my fav's
its a very powerful setting. It looks like it was taken in the early 1900's in the south of france, IMO. lovely throughout.
jhonny_blue (4956) 2004-03-29 4:22
Wonderful shot Riba !
It´s so beautiful and the sepia was a good choice !
ornis (1271) 2004-03-30 16:12
To me, this is great art in photography, because you have the subject, the setting and the atmosphere. It's leading us beyond reality, to a sort of fairy tale dream. Very well post processed, as a painter would imagine such a scene. Beautiful, Riba!
volunteer123 (244) 2004-04-25 3:03
again great sepia tones and picture full of the story!
nice , nice, i live abroad for quite long time, and this one is bringing to me feeling of coming back home
but soon enought :) in summer for the holiday :)
thanks for this!
ninfa_urania (803) 2004-05-04 1:35
Hola Riba, Wow!. I like that personal touch that you give to your images, it is impactante, original and interesting. I magnify color that makes only and necessary to each element of her, The illumination, the effect of the clouds, I like everything. Gives me the impression that your picture goes beyond the third dimension. Impressive and Fantastic, it is the image type that I like to have in my room to be able to appreciate it every day. Cordial greetings. *Ninfa Urania *

Bos (628) 2004-09-17 12:09
I didn't notice your photo's before, but damn they are great, where do you get these tones from?
saurabh (104) 2004-09-21 6:34
Your pictures are works of art! Post-processing used most effectively.
padang (126) 2004-10-11 1:24
Wonderful moment and picture. Maybe you can add more information about post processing technique.
travelyurt (276) 2004-10-14 8:44
Fantastic picture. The original composition combined with the superb post-photo work have really made this feel like a shot from a superb art film. One of the best heavily manipulated images I have seen on TE. Your note might be more helpful, though, if you explained what you saw in the original image that convinced you to put in this time, why you took this approach, etc. Thanks!
sn00zie (2384) 2004-11-02 10:10
excellent composition and post production. the highlights, the shadows-very well done Riba..
pamela (619) 2004-11-18 7:21
Hermosa fotografía, parece un cuadro. No se cómo llegaste a este efecto. Felicitaciones.
gulliver (1646) 2005-02-04 8:02
As written, very good inspiration and effect....picture could be issued from Oz or any child history!
Niglo (181) 2005-02-10 12:25
J'aime bien cette photo. Elle a un côté mystérieux. Que regarde l'enfant ? qu'attend t-il ? Les couleurs ajoutent au mystère.
capthaddock (28790) 2005-03-22 11:47
Hi Riba - This is unbelieveable, you transformed 2003 into 1903.
ydarias (679) 2005-04-12 15:31
Hi Riba. I like very much your picture. In one word it's perfect. The illumination and the framing are very good. And the composition is very original. Very good job.

sayzey (2358) 2005-08-29 22:47
Wow riba, this is a very artistic shot, every now and then I come across a photo on TE with a very special quality, something that sets it out from the rest, evern the VERY good photos. This is one of those shots.
I really dont know how this result was achieved in post processing but I would LOVE to know more, superb colours, the mood created is amazing!
Raciti (619) 2005-09-03 14:57

Rushabh (389) 2005-12-02 1:08
Awesome workmanship! You must have put lot of time to come up with the final image.
TomekWalkiewicz (233) 2006-02-09 10:16
great picture, but I don't like pictures from Adobe.
Oryginall is much better
elBud (2237) 2006-02-09 10:25

ckuhn55 (2670) 2006-02-09 10:53
I like the original blk n wht. Not perfect, looks more like a painting..nice job
aralda (1240) 2006-07-11 14:02
Great atmosphere and processing. Nice title, too!
sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2006-07-11 14:19
I dont know what process of workmanship the original photo has gone through, but what has emerged out of it is extra special. This can put the best of canvases to shame.
beatak (578) 2006-07-22 6:27
Wonderful picture. It has taken my breath. Regards. Beatrice
agbonavita (0) 2006-07-22 7:00
great photo. The original one and the processed!
I love this perspective, with the boy looking tired in a road. Like a mission, he has to complete the way to get something.
Fantastic work Riba.
Thanks for share
twofun (1480) 2006-08-26 18:27
burn colors make that photo very powerfull feeling.
Child looking to him future/history with bad emotions.
Don_Gusti (0) 2006-09-07 18:18
Wow, one of the strongest pictures I’ve seen in TE, I always admired these dramatic pictures. Really wish I could give more than excellent. TFS
chamkhalaf (249) 2006-11-05 12:00
very nice photo & color
your photo look like oliver toeist
Liekje (574) 2006-11-08 17:24
Good choice of (lack of) colours!! Adds a lot of emotion and drama to the scene.
Talia (242) 2006-11-08 17:50
Seriously impressive photo here. Since this was taken with film, did you manipulate the negatives to get such color?
Valeski (906) 2006-11-26 22:35
Il risultato mi fa un po' pensare a Saudek, ma solo nella tinta.
Bella foto poetica!!
Cadrim2000 (109) 2007-01-01 8:59
Very nice shot. The composition is great. IMO it looks better than the original b&w. Great job.
clebersonbio (93) 2007-01-31 9:49
Troppo bella questa imagine, perfeta composizione..
MeAT (1174) 2007-01-31 10:02

Great capture Rida!
Good composition, POV and beautiful colors.
The atmosphere of this photo is like we are at the beginning of a fairy tale.

I like the effect “sepia”.
Cheer has you.
