Beautiful, beautiful! I love the round crop. This is even more lovely than Trichoto(me).
May I ?
Thanks, Ashley, … anytime! : )
It’s cropped that way because it’s in a circular ‘gallery’, maybe I should just crop it that way …? (she wonders out loud)
Thank you, Karen.
Are you able to actually crop it that way?
If not, I’ll do the circular gallery thing. 🙂
I’ll let you know!
both serene and kinetic at the same time. wonderful piece.
Thanks very much, Scot!
Ah, ‘digging’ the round crop and content as well!!!! Brilliant, Karen! 🙂
Aw, thanks, Marina! : ) You’re very kind.
How did you manage to send this lovely renaissance image forward from the 1500s?
I’m not really sure but it seems to have been damaged slightly in transit. : )
Loving your comment, Steven, thank you!
This really appeals to me – as you can probably guess. The bird works extremely well!
More clapping of the hands.. you clever thing you !! I love the round crop too but would have just liked a teeny bit more space above his top wing.. ( gosh I am being picky!!
Yes, the bird and the branches are a great fit here! Very nice!
I love it Karen! Really nice composition.
When I came across with this word last time was, 50 years ago, when I was experimenting with B/W film process = film emulsion crinkled when there was a big temperature difference between the chemicals. (I wasn’t aware that the name of the
line in a Microscope image-field = Reticle was the same word)
So, to learn this rather archaic connotation afresh in a visual sample is a good education. (Looks a part of Classic !)
The round crop works very well with this particular image. Love the movement.
Love the textural effect, the reticulation. Recycling the flight of the imagination? The image somehow spooks me! It has a touch of the netherworld – capturing ghostly imagery. Interesting work.
This is even more lovely than Trichoto also for me! Lovely…lovely!
We, metalsmiths, also use reticulation (creating textures on the surface of the metal with the torch) – so interesting to see how (beautifully) it translates into another medium. Great photo, Karen. Haunting, poetic.
I love it! It´s like looking at an old painting and at a fleeting moment at the same time… (And yeah, the round crop suits it very well!)
Oh so beautiful!!!! gosh, what you can do … 🙂
Wonderful artwork, karen.
Time travel, of course is the only way to make such a piece vibrating with both heart wrenching nostalgia and pulsing life force, all at the same time:)
Oh I like this, Karen, you’re definitely getting into the surreal here and I like the effect very much. The circular crop adds to it, as does the blurring of the woman’s features. By the way, don’t know whether you’ve seen it or not, but there’s a new post on my blog – Winter Dawn – which may be your sort of thing. Adrian
A very nice photograph. Were you looking for something in particular in these studies that involve double exposures?
Karen, Absolutely STUNNING! – K
Like a fairy tale waiting to be born. Beautiful! I really like the crop as well – there’s something a bit Victorian about it, which enhances the fairytale-ness even more.
Love all your creativity, Karen! This definitely has a very mysterious and surreal feel to it…beautiful hues!
The round crop is great, it adds to the Renaissance feel, but the uncropped image almost fading into the black background added even more for me – the mystery of what is beyond …
It’s interesting how the crop changes the story of this beautiful image. I love the design of the branches in the background.
Wow, gorgeous. The colors remind me of Paul Delaroche’s “The Young Martyr” http://www.illusionsgallery.com/the-young-martyr-L.jpg
Love everything about this. You take selfie to a whole nother level. Like looking at oneself out of one eye at a time, all at once: shifty.
I like the original rectangular cropping because it leaves more “breathing room” for the bird and also lets us see a little more of the reticulation. Speaking of which, you’re the only other blogger I’ve encountered who’s used that word. It comes naturally over here because of the native vine Matelea reticulata:
What a beautiful image… I’m inwardly captivated 🙂
i like the round crop – makes it look like an oil painting
Gorgeous! Love the round crop. Love the bird.
