Week 4 - As If Death Itself Was Undone by manuelestheim Week 4 - As If Death Itself Was Undone by manuelestheim
Week 4/52

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world

Florence + the Machine - Blinding
---------
This song will forever inspire me.
I've had the idea for this week's picture in my head for such a long time and now that I finally got to shooting it I have to say that I am SO disappointed with the final image.
I feel like it's a large step back after the last images I uploaded which I liked so much more.

Well, still want to keep doing my 52 Weeks Project so I'll definitely upload them even though I may not like what I upload.

How did you do that floating part? Did you jump? Or..?
Looks like life after death, second breath, watching your dead body..

gosh! I'm absolutley in love with this image (and that florence and the machine song!!!) !!
I kinda like everything about it; the tones, the soft light, the location...even your outfit! It's been years and years since I've had a really similar idea on my mind but I have never achieved to get that picture out of my head and into a photograph. but this, this is really close to everything I ever imagined!
Great great work! :heart:

First off, I LOVE YOU FOR LISTENING TO FLORENCE.
Second, you are quite talented with a camera (and probably Photoshop).

did you actually cut the other one of you in and turned it round? or did you use a chair or something to lean on and then removed it?

Wow. This is absolutely amazing. The only thing wrong with it that I can see is that it looks like the shoes are completely different. But, honestly, this is breathtaking

You should NOT be disappointed about your photos. Ever. Your project is a project for a reason, and that's improvement. You do not necessarily have to improve for EVERY photo you take, you know. I feel that some of the photos I took in the beginning of my project are better than what I can do today. You may see what could be done better, but NEVER be disappointed! It's all a learning process! I really like this one actually! I think it would be a cool b&w, have you tried it? The objects might get lost in the detailed trees, but give it a shot :)

Beautiful, outofbox, again. I would, however, suggest increasing the transparency of the floating figure a bit more.
