About the Image(s)

I merged a shot out the window of an airplane, with a shot of the moon from my upstairs window, with a self shot. Added haze to the moon, and Linear Gradient to the sky.

Tom, I love the artistic simplicity of this composite which works very well, literally at different levels. The merging of your body into the cloud and the addition of the Linear Gradient to the sky adds to the overall visual aesthetic. There is a sense that you are at the start of a journey and also that we know where you are heading, as we can see the moon. Being a left-to-right kind of chap, I warmed even more to your image when it was flipped horizontally as below.   Posted: 05/07/2023 02:24:44

I like this flipped composition, we read left to right and this man to moon makes me feel the images more than moon to man   Posted: 05/19/2023 13:52:16

Tom, Another outstanding image in the Tom series. I find the minimalist approach you've chosen here very successful. On my first viewing I was minimally distracted by the patchwork of land below the clouds. I wonder if you were to clone in more clouds if it would further develop the minimalism and focus the attention on this ethereal image.   Posted: 05/12/2023 20:30:10

when is the book coming out? what a great series! good one!

I like it flipped as Brian did as it reads man looking to the moon that way
The man is floating a tad, so more clouds over that patchwork area might help.   Posted: 05/19/2023 13:53:42

Tom, A small point, but I meant to say in my earlier comment that I particularly like the way that the tip of your chin is visible below the brim of your hat.   Posted: 05/20/2023 03:37:03

It was an accident, but thanks.

I too prefer the left to right version and the suggestion of more cloud over the patchwork below. Maybe I could also suggest a bit more thin swirling cloud around your body Tom. What a fantastic series of images you are producing.   Posted: 05/21/2023 03:49:25

Hi Hazel,
Nice suggestion that I will use on my next edit!   Posted: 05/21/2023 18:58:16

Hi Tom, there's not much I can add to what already has been said. It's a well thought out image and tells a story.   Posted: 05/24/2023 06:01:04

Tom, nice concept, nice carry through. I would suggest lightening the moon a little but that is nit picking.   Posted: 05/24/2023 14:03:23
