The symbology of the lion is common to Strength, and aptly so. The lion is the "beast within", the raging inner desire inside every one of us that must be controlled or it will be set free to manifest in the world. The image of the woman opening the mouth of the lion shows both courage and patience; she must not fear the lion, and she must wait for it to tire before she can exert her own will upon it. This is not an image of compassion in any sense of the word; how can forcing a creature to obey your will be seen as compassionate? Forgiveness and nurturing are likewise not to be seen anywhere in this image. There is just the purity of the maiden and the power of her inner beast that she is attempting to control. (32 days ago)

Please see hi-res image and SBS. Even if you're a brain-numb knucklehead who usually doesn't take these things into consideration, I encourage you to engage the thought process for a change and actually consider the work that goes into the image you vote for. And if you've actually gone to the trouble to read this, IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THIS IMAGE, it's about thinking before you vote on any image. Like for instance: composition, lighting, rendering skill, technical skill, color, originality of concept, etc. I could go on, but these are the basics that go into a good image. So...please engage the thought process before you vote on any image in any contest. It might even be good to start a forum thread about what you look for in an entry, and how it effects your vote. Thanks for listening, and please don't vote for this entry if you have no clue what you're voting for. :) (257 days ago)

Space tug #39 hauls an asteroid of Dilithium ore to the Federation refinery station.

My take on the old science fiction pulp magazines from a bygone era. This cover would fit into the late 1940s-early 1950s. Some of the greatest SF stories of all time were written then. I wish I still had my old copies! The anthology of the best of the best from this era is ADVENTURES IN TIME & SPACE, edited by Healy & McComas. Movies like The Thing and The Day the Earth Stood Still were made from these stories. It's still in print, so get a copy for great reading!
Go here to see some of the fabulous old covers: http://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1684&bih=1010&q=amazing+stories+covers&gbv=2&oq=amazing+stories+covers&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=s&gs_upl=0l0l0l1829l0l0l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0
