LOVE IS NOT FAR. KEEP LOOKING FOR IT! :heart:

This is a photo I took during my trip in Spain, while I was walking the
"Camino de Santiago de Compostela" (some 700 hundreds kilometers
in a few weeks). I met some amazing pilgrims during this journey.

I also made the drawing. If you wish, you can view here the work in
progress, some details and the scene from another angle.

The other woman walking in the distance is an important element in
the composition of this picture. The guy on the rocks is attracted by
a beautiful but fake holy creature. In my view, the person with the red
backpack symbolizes the real and genuine LOVE... but it is actually
going away from him. Hopefully he will take the right decision before
it's too late (it's just my own interpretation, I understand you might
see something completely different, I even encourage this).

View the the full Pencil Vs Camera album

Happy New Year. Let love invade our lives in 2012.

(The above picture has been shot with the Samsung NX11)

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (with a small animation and original music).

All about You

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

It is all about you
Every day that I wake
Like a symphony new
In its moment and take
Every dream that's awhile
Of the echoes go
Form and its somber style
That we both now know

It is all about love
Every day and dark night
Moving clouds of above
Till the sun comes up bright
Every wandering going by
In their trips and desire
Burning sun setting sky
That's in the glow of its fire

Love is all about this
That you keep and you long
Like a morning freshly bliss
In a springtime new song
All that comes and is staying
With its gold spurring thought
In the times of its saying
That each love has on taught

this photo alone could convey an emotional scene, depending on the title and information you provide. however the scene was set delicately where a very realistic scene is contrasted with one of fantasy.
My favorite part of the picture is the background. Here your depth of field and capture moment is superb. The mountains look as though they were swallowed by the fog and sky, giving them an ominous and also unrealistic quality that goes greatly with the drawn picture
To discuss the drawn picture, it presents a great faerie-tale like story, as the man takes the heart from the giant woman in the sky (all while a cupid has his bow armed and ready to fire)
This is a good picture to post, especially with the february holiday fast approaching.

This photo itself is already a visionary piece, so the addition of the pencil art makes for an interesting artistic composition. What is intriguing about the pencil art is that while it doesn't seem to belong in the original photo, it gives us a clue into the psyche, persona, and mental state of the subject. Why has this woman appeared in his thoughts, replacing his magnificent view of this real-world scene with her portrait?

Technically, the photograph itself is excellent. The depth of the background is, in a word, striking. I love the composition and staging of this piece as well - the mountains, the clouds, and the fields themselves. It all seems to have been pieced together seamlessly. The detail on even the most minute pieces - the gravel, the road in the background, and the rocks - is impeccable.

As for the title of the work, "Pencil Vs Camera", I don't agree with that, because to me, the pencil piece is an addition onto an already great photograph.

Vision: 5
Originality: 4/5; you've already done 60 previous "Pencil Vs Camera" pieces, so I'm taking off a point for that.
Technique: 5
Impact: 5

This is jst wonderful. I love it. It's almost as if your hand is pulling the drawn woman away so he can notice the woman with the red backpack before it's too late.It's just beautiful.

Your intent for the piece actually shows through quite well, at least to my eyes. I see him reaching for healing from the goddess figure, but then my eye is drawn downward to the woman on the pathway, moving away, more luminous than the artificial figure above. His focus seems to have been drawn down to her, however, as he pauses in his joining of hearts with the goddess... perhaps, in a moment, he will go down from his pile of debris and follow...

I like it :3

you are using the word "silhouette" in your description, but im not seeing any silhouette. are you talking of the figure walking down the path? the word "silhouette" means something is backlit so much that the figure/thing/whatever is all black and you only see the shape and not the details. great pic though. love your creativity.
