"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

What an original proposition & compo, I love these warm colors and all the details, how it bends and seems alive, the shadow and the light : great double painting full (sprint :) of (your) poetry*

don from spokane, United States

A wonderful idea carried out in a superb manner. Both pictures are very appealing. The first for it reality and the second as a fine abstract. Good eye to see the possibility of these shots.

xavier cardell from menorca-barcelona, Spain

I love the top photo. To be honest I don't see the need for the bottom one. I probably miss something... Nevertheless, the top one is excellent, one can feel the motion and the feeling of a beautiful sunset.

Tracey from Maryland, United States

I agree with xavier...the top photo is excellent. Not sure what the shadow is in the bottom. The colors are delicious!

30 Jun 2009 2:08pm

@Tracey: Both shadows on top and down picture are shadows of the car from the road . I was a passenger in this car and had a chance to shot it. It really looked fantastic and these colors are original without any saturation . Thanks.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Such warm colors from this sunset. I love the angle in which you have chosen to post this. The angle of the earth and its horizon adds visual interest compared to a photo where the horizon was "leveled."
