This has something Victorian about it. Must be the tones and all that lace smile This is a good idea!
vz-nostalgia: What you meant to say is "this has something Viktorian about it", right Martin? smile
Delicate and lace-like.
vz-nostalgia: Isn't it a definition for "fragile", Ian?

Oh, I know which person you have dedicated this pic to! I very like the natural textures and I always admire the artworks of mother nature! I like the some chaotic look too -like dreams which are composed from so many fragments of our life, vision, fears, desires...
vz-nostalgia: If you are a dreamer and a night whisperer, I can dedicate it to you too, Philine. smile

Philine knows! And I also like what Martin says about how Victorian this looks. It also reminds me of the faeries!

This is easily one of my favorites of yours, Viktor. smile
vz-nostalgia: I think Philine has a crystal ball hidden in the drawer. smile
I bet, Martin misspelled it. He meant to say "Viktorian". smile

...and drifted away like gossamer garments on the crimson wind

I just realized the poetry is more than just descriptive, it is an integral component of your art. Well done.
vz-nostalgia: smile It took you a while, but I'm delighted you finally got it, Doug. smile

"bats,"...That is my first impression.
vz-nostalgia: Well, those are quite impressive nocturnal flying creatures equipped with amazing echolocation devices. There is nothing wrong with your first impression, Nasreen. Now, what was your second impression? smile

Oh yes, a new wonderful word has born: Viktorian style! Hahaha!
vz-nostalgia: smile Long overdue, don't you think, Philine? smile

viktor,
you've done it again - the marriage of visual and text brings both to another realm -
vz-nostalgia: We need to come up with a term for this fusion of images and words, Cathy. A photopoetry? Nah, sounds too banal. You got to help me out with that. smile

A collector of dragonfly wings
vz-nostalgia: Well, I collect night whispers, pieces of dreams, rays of inner lights...why not memories of dragonfly wings. smile

I like the delicate texture in this very much.
vz-nostalgia: It's so delicate, Alan, there should be a sign "Do Not Touch" on it. smile or maybe even "Do Not Look" smile

In my youth I studied science...a bad idea it requires far to much discipline and fact...I like things that are a matter of opinion. I did like osmosis...I understood osmosis, and the beauty of xylem an phloem. The blood vascular system of plants. I'm ramblinggrin Great picture
vz-nostalgia: I'm impressed you still remember what xylems and phloems are, Bill. I lost two languages, in which I was fluent in my youth, to the point of no return. I guess, because there is not much blood in the vascular system of my brain nowadays. smile Oh, I'm rumbling too.

A Garden of Earthly Delights echoing a paradise lost?
vz-nostalgia: Please pray for forgiveness to the spirits of Bosch and Milton for mentioning their masterpieces next to my modest effort. smile
At first I thought you referred to my earlier post

but then realized that the probability of that is zilch. smile

Strange, isn't it, that we see beauty in the re-absorption of plant-matter, but try to hide the same process of animals.

In the end, it is all food for worms...
vz-nostalgia: We all will be there, Ray.
It all depends on the point of view. See my reply to Tony

nice macrom with wonderful toning..
vz-nostalgia: smile you're a polite man, sam.
lovely detail and conversion
vz-nostalgia: You're a true gentleman, doc. Even if it's not your cup of tea, you still find a couple of good words. smile

beautiful the photo as well as the comment that goes with it. I love the color that you used here.
vz-nostalgia: It's a special color, Scarlet. A custom blend. Do you see a hint of scarlet in the palette? smile That's why you love it! Some russian magic. smile

Strange effect but it works well for me.
vz-nostalgia: What exactly do you find strange in here, Roland?

What I find strange ? The color, the effect you've applyed there... And give all the magnitude to your legend. A good work !
vz-nostalgia: I might disappoint you, my friend, but I didn't apply any effects here, except for the monochromatic conversion. smile The color might be a bit unusual, but it works with my thoughts, I think.
Glad you like it.
Viktor the `poetographer`! Like Ginnie, I see this and I am `away with the faeries`!(:o)
vz-nostalgia: Poetography! That's pretty damn close to what I do. I like it much better than "photopoetry".
