Rivendell by MaximeDaviron Rivendell by MaximeDaviron
"At first the beauty of the melodies and of the interwoven words in elven-tongues, even though he understood them little, held him in a spell, as soon as he began to attend to them. Almost it seemed that the words took shape, and visions of far lands and bright things that he had never yet imagined opened out before him; and the firelit hall became like a golden mist above seas of foam that sighed upon the margins of the world. Then the enchantment became more and more dreamlike, until he felt that an endless river of swelling gold and silver was flowing over him, too multitudinous for its pattern to be comprehended; it became part of the throbbing air about him, and it drenched and drowned him. Swiftly he sank under its shining weight into a deep realm of sleep.
There he wandered long in a dream of music that turned into running water, and then suddenly into a voice."

The Lord Of The Ring., J.R.R Tolkien.

Wow! What a beautifully shot! Very nicely done I would say.^^ I love the whole picture.How the water captures the sun it just wow. The water looks like it would be really soft XD. How the trees capture the sun,is very lovely too. Looks like everything is getting up for the day. Love how it goes from light to dark. I think that's really cool. If you look,you can see the sun's rays. I can never do that. This would make a really nice background picture for computers and stuff. All and all,a very beautifully shot. From high to low,and low to high :D

Fantastic! - I'm not sure if there's snow in rivendell though (is it snow?) But you haven't read the original version have you?!

Euh... j'accroche beaucoup moins à celle-là, en fait. J'aime bien parce qu'on voit plus la cascade et c'est particulièrement joli. Par contre, la partie gauche avec la zone claire (j'arrive pas trop à voir ce que c'est), je la trouve dérangeante ^_^

lol ok, la partie gauche ... Ben c'est de la neige, c'est un gros névé de printemps ^^ Au contraire elle structure bien mieux la compo que sur l'autre où on ne voit qu'une zone sombre et un bout blanc. Mais je comprends que si on ne sait pas ce que c'est (bien que ça soit curieux), ça puisse être étonnant.

Oui oui... quand même ;)
C'est juste que la texture n'est pas habituelle... enfin, je ne sais pas, chez moi la neige c'est blanc (avant que les voitures ne débarquent ^_^)
Je crois que ta photo me laisse perplexe ^_^

Ben sauf erreur de ma part c'est blanc aussi. C'est une neige tassée et usée, pas une neige fraîche.

Ah... c'est que la neige usée, c'est difficile d'en avoir ici !
