The Hermit by RhysGriffiths The Hermit by RhysGriffiths
heh it seems ive finally broken my all time low of crap pictures and come up with something half-decent.. some of the blending isnt the best, but im on holidays so i dont really feel like concentrating lol. 15 hrs.
EDIT: fixed up heaps of details that were bothering me, fixed up some bad blending and added a larger picture

this is an entry for =markopolio-stock's contest, the topic is 'Weathered Faces Lined In Pain' which can be found here: [link]

I love the sense of the long passage of time I get from this picture. The soft gloom, the peaceful setting, and the way Nature has kind of reclaimed the man-made items by growing into them. Something of a blending of nature and nurture.

Hi

I have featured this deviation in my journal as a thumbnail because I like it and want my watchers to see it.

If you object to your work being displayed in this manor - I have every respect for you and will remove it as soon as I receive a note from you asking me to remove it.

Keep up the really great work.

Andy
