Don't blink, don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you can believe.So don't turn your back, don't look away and DON'T BLINK. Good luck.

She's keeping watch over something, isn't she?

She was human once but she was turned to stone by the stare of a medusa. The same thing will happen to you unless you can turn your eyes away in time.

No, no - interpret the photo as you like. You might have a happier interpretation than that (in any case I made it up on the spur of the moment).

:D

Oh, I'm very sorry to hear that. I hope she can help to do that. I saw your last photo of Shania in your gallery. Take care...

"that which holds the image of an angel becomes itself an angel"
"Blink" heeft mijn visie op beelden wel be´nvloed, denk ik. lol.

Is dit trouwens dit trouwens op het Kelfkensbos? Achter dat blauwe kunstwerk?

I'm relying on google translate - so I'm not sure what you're asking but the statue is in Nijmegen somewhere.

Oh, I'm sorry. I assumed you were Dutch.
Why were you in Nijmegen? :)

No particular reason. I had some hotel points to use up and the nearest hotel in the group, (so that I didn't need to spend a lot of money on travelling) was near Nijmegen.

What if I just wink one eye at a time? I'll go blind if I don't rest my eyes soon.

This is a spectacular photograph! I don't usually favorite pictures of statues, because I think "Oh, I could have taken that easily," but the lighting in this is absolutely wonderful <3 Thank you for sharing this here!

In this piece I am connected with the her eyes. See this as an angel that has perhaps fallen. She is trying to connect with the viewer. There is a great deal of built of emotions in this piece. One can be connected through the eyes to get a true sense of what the person is feeling, or in this case the artist who made this piece. Love the photo , great job!

Thanks v much. Yes, the original statue is the actual work. However the photo is a particular (and narrower) interpretation of that work. I often feel that taking an existing artwork and just tweaking it is cheating in a way (but when I do it myself its justified ;-) )

I know. I've run out of naked women for now! But also I've just bought a 70-300mm lens that I'm using at every opportunity. So my next nude model will need to stand half a mile away while I bellow instructions through a loud speaker. That way I can still use my new lens.

what camera do you use?
your profile says your in the nikon group, so i dont know much about them as i am a canon guy myself!
just a suggestion but seeing shouting instructions through a loud speak MIGHT draw some unwanted attention try a phone call! lol!
have fun with your new lens fella.

Its a Nikon D90. I used a Tamron 70-300mm lens for this shot. It has excellent vibration reduction. This shot was made from 3 bracketed photos (hand-held thanks to the vibration reduction). I did some HDR processing but I don't think its actually noticeable.
