Fountain: Highly recommended great architecture stock page!

Sometimes, what is apparently obvious, may not be the real thing. Reality can hide within the many "reflections", and it relies in our strength at heart to search and grab our dreams and make them coming true, without fainting. Nerlande here is just a symbol, could be any loved one. In some "reflections", you'll see her, in others you don't. It's long struggle with many possible paths, not for everybody certainly.

The original image had perfect symmetry, but soon realized that the fountain's photo was not taken exactly at its center, so had to offset camera a bit to the left...just a note for the purists! :lol:

Hope you enjoy it and at least stop by. Due to work and complex personal circumstances, I'm very overdue in reviewing devs and apologize for being at DA only a few mins a day, hope you'll understand, thanks! :)

Thank you very much for your comment. :). You expressed very well how do I artistically feel when working around a stock photo, which is basically respecting the work of the artist, while trying to blend it in hopefully an original not commonplace way. It's a pleasure working with your images, and btw, saw a lot of very cool ones lately. Will specially review them as soon as time is available. :)

Mi amor, this is splendid. As we discussed, it was really a miracle you produced here. Highly imaginative and symbolic of course! The fountain looks variously like a fountain, a monolith, a tombstone, a doorway, an altar, a resting place, or an :analprobe:! :lol: No really, this is the coolest thing - the story is great too. Looking forward to more ingenious inventions like this one! :glomp: :kiss:

Deeply thank you for your words my love. You brilliantly encompassed all the meanings of the Fountain...including the naughty one! :lol:. Hmmm...it's obvious by now that you didn't write it during the morning!! :rofl: :glomp: :hug:

A beautiful render! One nice thing about the real and the unreal, is that it doesn't take long to spot the difference! Really a superb image Sergio!

Thank you very much Angel. You're words are very true, the supposedly obvious is not always the real thing, and we must not resign our search for it. :)
