A photomanip.. damn, this looked like a cg rendering to me until I read otherwise. Very surreal, but the message is still superbly effective. The oddly fuzzy horizon bothers me, but I have no idea how you'd alter it unless you could somehow grey the sky as it approached the horizon.
This is very beautiful. The sun seem to be struggling with the clouds, attempting to shed it's light on the world below. I can see someone sitting on the rock shore watching as the clouds and the sun fight for supremacy. That someone could sit there for hours, basking in the quiet and enjoying the majestic beauty that is before them. Excellent photomanip!
Blackhole Sun are the first words to come to mind upon looking at this image. The path of rocks just leads out to the blue ocean and the blackening sky beyond. The sky and the sun seem to absorb to draw the eye in. Also the clouds are rather stunning. I expecially like the "wispy wave" clouds that appear at the top, above the sun.
Wow...This is breathtaking. It feels like this image is a capture of the edge of the world and instead of discovering a choas of weather, land, and ocean you find it is merely a eerie silence that dominates such a dangerous and fabled place. The sky looks sick to me...like some awful storm is about the rape the land viciously.
tangeles in a blanket of clouds, dreaming on the back of a wet skinned night, walhing the step of unnamed silences, surrendering reflections to soft edges blissed by being without facts, rock leaning water witout it's spells o life and encounter.
