Bluejean Melancholy 2 by wb-skinner Bluejean Melancholy 2 by wb-skinner
Thoughts of days gone by.

Paths you've chosen to arrive where you are.

Mistakes you've made ...

Hindsight is 20/20 or so they say.

Despite all the dreams which never came true,

you realize in your content state of melancholy

that you wouldn't change a thing

even if you could...

HDRi from 3 shots at +1EV. 2nd of a two shot set.

I really like this.
It kind of reminds me of Edward Scissorhands, with the feel of isolation and loneliness.
Very nice.

I have a hard time settling for melancholy, though, truly, some bits of it remain in me always. Another great conceptual portrait, Johnny. :rose:

it is HDR ... three exposures taken at the same time with a tripod. Then it's combined in Photomatix.

glad you like it!

Wow! The photo, the words. Just amazing. :faint:

Hmm.....'content state of melancholy', I can really relate to that. A comfortable place that you can get dangerously attached to. :-)
