Another piece along the same lines. Portraying a synthesis of the Human and Natural elements. Decided to work with color this time as well as to do more digital painting as opposed to straight photo-manip.

Please let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is appreciated. Especially on my attempt to exaggerate the depth of field and points of focus.

All stock used was shot by me.
PS - a couple hours (over a period of several days)

Detail crop here

One of my favorite pieces in DV. I saw this and was inspired for a editing assignment that I will have to do next semester. The assignment from what friends have told me will be to take a picture that inspires you and transform it in specific ways. The teacher will decide. This picture is simply amazing so I wanted to ask for permission to use this as my inspired picture.

Hey, could I get your permission to use this picture? I'm entering a photopoetry competition and I'd like to cite it as the picture that inspired me (:

This has to be my favorite of the "Human Nature" series, I absolutely love the root's and veins idea.

i love this concept!! only critique is that the tree and the arm have different light sources. the tree's light is on its left and the hands light is on it's right. otherwise this is amazing!

awesome pic dude ^^ very nice idea.... the roots rock!! XD oh but some of the background isn't shaved off the trunk and the white spots of light showing through the tree look cool but they look un-natural since the background's dark reddish colour anyways awesome pic ^^

There's really no words to clearly express just how much I adore the concept, it's powerful yet gives off a delicate feeling as if your holding a very precious life in the palm of your hand literally.

The roots directed right into the wrist completely sells the whole picture for me. Amazing work man, I'll have to give your gallery a good look through, I like what I see.
