She loved the days when the Rainbows came out. Flying through the moisture laden clouds and circling through all the colours. What a joy!

Edit: Redid the sizing and the motion trail. Lost some detail but brought it closer to the theme. Trying to get the blur from the figure flying in one direction and the wings moving in another was a pain!

All images except the model are my own.

Thank you to rammkitty-stock. (5 years and 2526 days ago)

I can't make out what is flying. It looks like either just a bird wing, or a dead bird. Now that I studied your SBS, I can barely make out the woman, but the wings are too large and overdominate the woman, making the image very hard to "read" without seeing the SBS...
Perhaps you could give her face and hair a bit more contrast.

Even if i don`t understand what`s happen in this pics it looks beautifull.....

EDIT DONE ... changed so much that the SBS is not very applicable to this image. Sorry about that, I did not have time to change it. It still shows that I did the work and gives details of my first image.

Author I have to be honest that it took me 5 minutes too to actually see what was flying there (and I watched the SBS a couple of times and wondered how you used the sources). Somehow you have a kind of visual illusion here, either you see it or you don't

Nevertheless I really like this entry, visually it is good, has some mystery in it and makes you want to look again. The motion could be a bit better, looks like she's photographed with a stroboscoop now, if there would be anything you want to improve I'd say have a look at that again

author says:

Okay ... tried some changes. I think it is better but I believe Rob is right. When you look at something a long time you have a vision of what it looks like but it only you can see it. Sometimes it is not a good vision LOL!

Please let me know if you think it is better???

think it is more recognisable now what is flying there

author says:

Hey Rob! Thanks! Just one question, is the motion blur better? I worked on that too!

robvdn says:

To be honest If I were you I'd keep the original entry for my personal portfolio (I liked it better) but also think you made the right choice to change it for this contest. Think you have to search for a photo which has got motion blur on it and see how that looks like on a photo, it will give more a blur trail.

Much better! You can clearly make out the woman, and the motion looks more "moving," to fit the statement.
Great improvement!

I could be a "stop-motion" image, or a "slow-motion". Very beautiful, and it makes our imagination fly away...

author says:

Thanks Nator. I was unsure about the changes so it is really great to get positive feedback now that they are done.
