Week 26 - Please Give Me Wings by manuelestheim Week 26 - Please Give Me Wings by manuelestheim

Week 26/52 - Please Give Me Wings

One of my biggest dreams as a child was to learn how to fly. There was this rumor which said that if you dream the same thing 3 times it will become true - unfortunately I still can't fly haha. Well, at least in my photos I surely can do!

This took me wayyyy too long to edit, I've never been so exhausted after finishing a photo.
And on a side note: I'm halfway through the project (and still one photo behind..)!

This image is gorgeous and inspiring. I love the flow of the piece and the sense of weightlessness it conveys. It feels like the person is in the middle of a transformation or just discovering something about themselves and their abilities to transcend the mundane. Simply beautiful!

I don't know very much about photography..So im sure I can't appreciate your art work as much as others. But this one really talks to me. Out of all of the photos in the project,this one really stands out. I absolutely love it. Especially the dark effect you put on it. :)

Tolle Idee!
Die Textur is mir ein bissl zuviel aber ist geschmackssache.

oooooh, cooooool :la:
du wirst immer besser :giggle:

ich liebe fotos mit fliegenden tüchern :love:
steckt da irgend ein trick dahinter, oder hast du es einfach in die luft geworfen?

deine pose ergänzt sich perfekt mit dem tuch und dein gewand gefällt mir auch gut^^

die textur find ich diesmal am himmel sehr schön :D ich weiß nur nicht, ob sie nicht irgendwie die tiefe aus dem bild nimmt (hab ich das schon mal gesagt? kA xD) ..

echt? mir kommts grad im moment eher total so vor, als würd ich am stand laufen D:

gibt keinen wirklichen trick..wird einfach in die luft geworfen und gehofft dass es gut aussieht haha!

ja hast du und ich weiß noch immer nicht was du genau dami tmeinst :P haha xD

:iconnilanja:
Nilanja Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012
nein, find ich gar nicht^^

ok haha, muss ich mal probieren..

ok xD naja ich probier auch grad mit texturen u so herum...
kA wie ich das erklären soll..wenn man ein bild übers andere legt, sag ma mal ebenen ineinanderkopiert, dann ist die texturen ebene ja quasi flach. besitzt keine tiefe. legt man das dann über ein foto, dann nimmts dem etwas an tiefe weg...weil man dann ja ein bisschen von der flachen ebene sieht.
verstehst du was ich mein? ^^
