Surely does, CDS! I really like this. It gives off such a peaceful feeling at first, but then as your eyes travel it gives a bit of a jangle-- a good one. lol Lovely work

Here is another one from me. This is actually a picture of some flames that I used a smudge tool to create some faces in there... I thought it came out pretty interesting...

What a great thread! Amazing images.

Everything I do is surreal, so it's great to be among fellow surrealists. Wish I could post some of my stuff here.

Unfortunately, all of the full-size pictures on my Web site are way too big both in dimensions and file size to post here, and I fear that if I squash them down any farther they well really get degraded (the originals are make high-res 16 x 20 prints). If you have broadband, take a look.

I use a 30D for the birds within my pictures (they are extracted an put into a new scene), and a 1Ds and 1Ds Mark II for everything else. All pictures are composites from, usually a minimum of three "straight" pictures. Often I use parts from as many as ten different pictures.

Hmmm, there's always links, but in looking at your website I see a lot of photomanipulation/abstract/pattern type stuff, but nothing I'd really call surreal....of course as can be seen in this thread opinion varies about what is and what isn't surreal. Thanks for posting and for the opportunity to see you work. Nice stuff.

I read the image posting guidelines to mean that I was not to even link to over-sized images. You are saying that it's okay?

Anyway, I believe that all of my stuff is surreal, though the Winter Birds and Summer Birds are the least so. The entire Four Ways group [ http://www.unrealnature.com/FourWaysThumbs.htm ] is the most obviously surreal. Those, and the Stone Stacks, and Wild Apples are not scenes that are capable of happening in the real world.

That is not sufficient for your conception of the term? Does your definition require super-natural content?

In any case, thank you for looking.

-Julie
