Zyryality: Still Dreaming

Just one spot left in my imaginary sailboat. Grumpy old men need not to apply. :-)

Lol, no good me applying, I get sea sick! Had a wonderful ride though once on a sailing boat around Ketchikan. Still dream about it. And if it rains much more here, I'll be sailing down the road!
vz-nostalgia: You're giving up too fast, Jose. I have a special cure for sea sick ladies... Nope, not what you think. smile A ginger tea.

This ocean looks like a very big place. The extreme composition works well with the minimalist color scheme. I like this!
vz-nostalgia: If Martin likes it, that means I'm doing something right... smile

Viktor, I would love to take the empty spot next to you, I have been sailing for many years, I will not be grumpy and I will even make sure that we have something to drink and eat on our long trip....love this beautiful capture of my imaginary sailboat.... but are you sure this one fits two??
vz-nostalgia: Your experience in sailing and your willines to provide the drinks and food puts you on the top of the list, Ms. Astrid. smile
Regarding space, unless you're a 300-pound lady, we'll be just fine. smile

Nice contrast! Love the vastness of the sky and ocean.
vz-nostalgia: A contrast? Hmm...between what and what, Ms. Richa? smile

Reminds me a little of this [ http://www.all-my-world.com/bkkphotoblog/slides/82jomtien%20action%20oct2006.html ], but I am buoyed by your vast blueness, VZ.
vz-nostalgia: That's a close call, Ray. Except, yours is a shot of joy, and mine is all blue nostalgia. smile
Big blue skies seem all the vogue at the moment ... Have you visited Chromasia's (not SC) last few postings. I'll come along as long as we have some 'blues' music. richard
vz-nostalgia: I haven't checked Dave's site for quite a while, as I was extremely busy lately. And I thought the foggy trees are chic nowadays, not the big blue skies. smile
I appreciate your willinness to come along, too bad you don't qualify, smile but, when you're in Atlanta, I'll take you to a real blues joint, Richard. You'll feel "blue" from tip to toe. smile

I've already set sail. My boat is the tiny dot on the horizon. Perhaps you'll join me? We will have all sorts of adventures--
vz-nostalgia: ...and only those who read between the lines will find their reward in looking at my pictures... smile I'm ready, Ms. Kathryn.

You THRIVE in this image, VZ. I know you. The more vast, the better. Dream on.
vz-nostalgia: I thrive in many of my images, Ms. Ginnie. smile I'm like a rose in a compost pile, the more sh...t, the better. smile

How about a grumpy old woman? Looks like you have quite a few interested in that spot already! I like the bold composition - it breaks the rules, but what the hell - rules are made to be broken.
Ingrid
vz-nostalgia: Grumpy old woman? You're not talking about yourself, aren't you, Ms. Ingrid? smile
Regarding the rules...when I was born, my momma said: "Go ahead, and break them rules, my precious son". That is exactly what I do forever since. smile

I love this shot VZ it is my kind of placesmile
vz-nostalgia: If so, go ahead apply for the spare seat, Ms. Tracy. smile
I like this shot Viktor. Very nice setting with this vast space behind the boat
vz-nostalgia: All men like spaces behind, Richard. smile

I see other have already claimed my spot here smile so I will just wait for the next one Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: Don't give it up so soon, Ms. Scarlet. This one is not a line at a farmer's market. The rule of a "first come, first serve" does not apply to Viktor's dream boat. smile
when no is what you have, yes can be the only unexpected outcome, so while young and grumpy i do aplly!! this translates very well the feeling of being at the open sea in a sailboat!!
vz-nostalgia: I'm sorry, Patrick. When "no" is what you have, that's what you have. smile God didn't bless you with the proper curves to qualify for the sail of dreams. smile

...Composition 8 étoiles ! Simple et terriblement efficace !
vz-nostalgia: Eight out of ten? You must be kidding! It's simple and terribly effective, as you just said. So, give it ten out of ten. No less, no more. smile

oh i long to see a sky like thatsmile wonderful VZ.
vz-nostalgia: Come back to look at this from time to time, until spring comes to your neck of woods, Tim. smile
And yes, I humbly admit that I AM wonderful. smile

beautiful work viktor!

i bet the models on my blog are very much welcome to apply eh? wink
vz-nostalgia: For models from your blog no application is required, doc. smile
It puzzles me why this huge expanse of sky is just so appealing - but it certainly is. In fact, it is almost hypnotic. I find myself just staring at it and feeling all my tension draining away. Every now and then my eyes drift downwards to the yacht floating off out of the photograph on that beautifully intensely coloured sea. Sigh! Thank you for those few moments of visual therapy. (:o)
vz-nostalgia: Visual therapy?! Can you imagine what will happen, if you win the trip on the boat of dreams, Ms. Roz? smile
WoW ! Blue, blue, blue everywhere... it changes from the dull and grey and wet sky in PAris ! Thanks for this image ! smile
vz-nostalgia: You're welcome, Ms. Flo.
That's why I'm here. To boost your mood. To make you feel extremely good. smile

grin and can old friendly men apply? Nah, you can get on with Astrid, I have work to do.

The great blue yonder it is called - go and enjoy it.

About the picture - if the boat was going the other way and in the same position in the picture it would have been perfect. Now it is close to perfect.
vz-nostalgia: You'll do me a huge favour by staying home, Louis. smile
In any other case, I would absolutely agree with you regarding the composition. Here, the shape and the direction of the sail outweighed the logic. I was smart enough to take two shots. The second one was exactly the one you are talking about. The difference was very slight, but noticeable enough for me to make a preference.

Did I ever tell you that I'm a close friend of Astraeus, the God of the Four Winds???... (I rest my case)
...and you can be a disruption of the horizon line until the blue runs out smile
vz-nostalgia: ha-ha, a very clever move, Ms. Lina. A kick below the belt, I'd say. No man would want to anger the God of Winds in his right mind. I'll move you to the very front of this long line. smile

Old and grumpy - but I feel ten years younger and never grumpy on a sail boat - any chance ;o)
vz-nostalgia: Nope. No chance, Mike. With the dial up, a virtual travel is nearly impossible. smile

lovely shot
vz-nostalgia: My pleasure, D.
Excellent shot. Love it. Is this type of shot called minimalism ?
vz-nostalgia: You may say so, Ms. Pearl. When you consciously limit your palette to a bare minimum, you got to be extremely cautious. One wrong step, and you might end up with a very boring piece (a hole that many modern artists got themselves into). Check out Philip Glass' or Steve Reich's works in music. This will better illustrate my point.

I think so that you are showing the image, and as you want it to teach. He does not serve as that says that there is much air. I like this effective simplicity!
vz-nostalgia: I'm sorry, Jose-Angel, but I got lost in this computer translation. Could you repeat what you just said in Spanish, please?

I love this pic which may evoce many thoughts and emotions...- especially a feeling of absolute freedom (which never is possible,of course) and a feeling of being only a point in this great universe, but with the beautiful chance to live: to see, to go, to think, to do, to love ....- life as a sailboattrip- a wonderful old metaphor- last but not least -looking at the plenty and the shades of wonderful, almost supernatural blue (99%)- a kind of "Sehnsucht" (we Germans never forgot the "Blaue Blume"/blue flower of a Novalis)! In general a pic with a high symbolic and contemplation-charakter for the colours and the composition allow to transcend the reality- for some moments like that!
vz-nostalgia: I love your thoughts, Ms. Philine. The German Romantism has influenced many great minds, including one of my favorites, Herman Hesse. I'm glad my image has reminded you of a free spirit of "Blau Blume" of Novalis. It's such an honor.
Love the minimalism
vz-nostalgia: Me too, Nig. I'm a big fan. smile

The empty space in the sky is an interesting way to capture the openness of the ocean. It works!
vz-nostalgia: Of course it does, Ms. Jewlya, but only in the hands of the master smile

Love it. You really know how to go for it!

I haven't been sailing for years, though I used to do some in Scotland - I had a friend who had a boat.
vz-nostalgia: As you once said, Ian, I'm pretty bold. smile

vz-nostalgia: I'd be interested to see the results of your inspiration by this photograph, Ms. Gulshat. smile
Definitively, "Great minds think alike? smile" LOL
