What a lovely composition – very nice indeed.
Thank you, Victoria.
So very Haunting~1
I love the geometry of the torso and figure contrasted with the depths of the waters. Beautiful.
Steven, thank you. I appreciate your feedback.
Eerie… Like a spooky Ophelia! 😀
I hadn’t thought of that but I suppose it references Ophelia in a way.
Ethereal and evocative. Fantastic composition.
Thank you, Amanda.
In our inmost being there are many songs that make us dance.
Yes, a dance with nature, perhaps…
Beautiful ethereal image.
Fairy of Magnolia flower ?
Thank you, Yoshizen! : )
I thought of Ophelia, too…
Thank you, Nathan.
I love the ambiguity in this image; a wonderful concept well executed.
Thanks very much, Nick. I had fun making this one.
It’s wonderful. I love that far left hand – the gesture, and how it fades.
Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I like the way you phrased that – ” the gesture, and how it fades”.
Wonderful composition. I’m not imagining all of the animal faces in the image, am I? At first, I didn’t see them since my eye was drawn to the hands, but I’m sure they’re there (aren’t they 🙂 )
Lemony, if you see animal faces they must be there… I love that you read the photograph that way. Thank you!
Oh my, I think this is fantastic. Those hands and their different poses are so elegant and they remind me of Indian mudras. Water being symbolic of emotion is a perfect match for them.
Ashley, I love your interpretation! A water dance of sorts. Thanks very much.
Title says it all… Perfectly balanced and beautiful!
Much thanks, Marina!
Superb image, brilliantly conceived Karen.
I’m glad you think so, Adrian. Thank you.
Wonderful. Quite a shocking intervention after your other recent images of water. I think it’s really a great image.
Shocking, huh? I suppose – so much of my work is the absence-of people in the landscape – this would be like an interference. Thanks for your comment, Richard.
Can’t find the words….stunning work Karen..
Very nicely done Karen!
Thank you, Phil.
Very well crafted Karen. Very eerie too. 🙂
Yes, a little eerie. Thanks, David!
this works so well… haunting, and beautiful
I appreciate that you think so, Emily. Thank you, I like the way it came together.
hello Karen , I am not a reply-er in terms of the `waaaw` messages. I kept looking at this image and i am still doing . Your choice of the title is super . I wondering why you have chosen it , maybe you could let us know. To me it expresses the balance between the elements of air, water and earth in association with mankind . I wonder, where is are the flames. Tell me ,why I am not correct , grt bart
Yes, you have interpreted this image in a similar way that I interpret it; how we relate with our environment and the elements – how we are not separate from it.
The flames? Perhaps, they are in our hearts and minds?
Thanks for your comment,
With this piece of Art and the way you and your image are communicating, it pleases me a lot to comment and interact with your work, Karen. See you soon and be my guest to comment my work to. grt bart
beautiful. Could you possibly add a few notes about how it was done? It would be interesting for people like me who live in another world altogther.
alienheartbeat (what a wonderful phrase),
What you see here are two photographs merged into one (using Photoshop).
One of the images is simply a water reflection – the other (figurative) was made by doing an in-camera triple exposure; my digital camera allows me to make double and triple exposures in one frame.
Thank you for your interest.
Thanks. In fact you appreciate the art more knowing how things are done.
The name comes from the idea of listening for the heartbeat of aliens.
Thank you, Hansi!
Thank you, Eva!
I know how this photo “feels.” A beautiful image Karen.
A cool comment, Marina. Thank you.
I found this image very emotional.. a sense of a troubled soul struggling to emerge from sorrow ( that may be more about me !! ) very, very beautiful. Good art always has many interpretations..
I like that we all come to art from a different perspective. It draws out different ideas and feelings. Thanks for calling it good art – you are very kind, Helen.
spooky and beautiful.
Thank you, Kate.
I saw this the other day but found it impossible to comment . . .
Hi Patti, I guess that’s a good thing? To be able to just feel something but have no words for it…
This is amazing ! Wow ! And beautiful !
