Great theme well executed!
Another powerful gallery!
beautifu :) love the damp colours.
I come back to these images time amd time again. Captivating
A superb gallery! The vertical panning effect works so well with people in the picture. Just outstanding!
Very beautiful "camera in motion" work. Dreamy. Evocative.
Great series...I would love to see more..So surreal...V!
I'd have to agree with Marnix ... VERY Munch like.
These images evoke all sorts of emotions ... almost nightmarish ...
powerful series here Ruth.
Excellent gallery. Tales a story. Voted.
Ive chosen the park for a few reasons. The space, I can see all around me, I can tell who is watching me, who is pretending not to notice me, and most of all, I like the fact that if we were to part on bad terms you wouldnt have trouble figuring out that you could go in any direction and still see me slipping away. We are in the centre discussing the reason why you decided to wear your hair back. Actually, you are talking but my interests are drawn to counting legs. Shes run past me 7 times, and 7 being my lucky number I think it is only fair to be leaving you before the eighth time ruins everything. Ive made up my mind and hand you back your keys.
Easily my favourite of your galleries. The bleary nightmarish quality, the menace and the sense of otherness, of crossing into the underworld once in the forest are evoked perfectly by your technique.
Small but brilliant gallery.

amaizing but inspirincing
This is really striking - I have tried something vaguley similar with still life and plants, but this is so much more powerful. Inspiring.
the only processing i did was a slight levels adjustment. the blur etc was with my camera.
thanks for the comments!
love! I really love these shots, is what I wanted to say :)
I really these four shots, you really managed to create a very eery atmosphere. Did you get the blur with your camera, or did you use a motion blur on the computer?
Re Pantheon: it's beautiful though there is not a whole lot to see, apart from the fabulous roof. If you are going to pay for a religious building (and I can see why you wouldn't want to, I agree it shouldn't happen), then visit Napoleon's Tomb in Les Invalides. That is very impressive.
Another scary but yet compellung and exiting gallery Ruth. I get the feeling of be purused when lookign at these, as if ther was a stocker i am trying to gt away from. And imaginative one perhaps...the stocker that is in my mind, the one that keeps telling me that i am not good enough and that i never will be...the essence of my fears, th eone that pursue me and keeps me trapped.
very interesting impression
Wonderful series of images--digital storytelling. The effects/process are powerful.--Rene

Gorgeous. Truly inspired.
very bold, but well done.
Northern Expressionism, ....Munch......
Ruth this is simply a beautiful gallery -- complex and mysterious indeed! Very nice. Bryan
Amazing work Ruth, it conveys a deep sense of terror as well as a feeling of being trapped.
This emotionally moving sequence of images is powerful and it made my heart pound. The way it struck me was profound and clear, and it sent me off on some interesting thought tangents. Bravo!
This is a powerfully expressive sequence, Ruth, mainly because each of these individual images is expressive to begin with. If the images were superficial, all the sequencing in the world would not add much meaning. The lonely figure framed by a forest of doubt and fear will realize its worst fears deep within those trees. Meanwhile, others stroll leisurely outside that forest, snug and secure in their companionship and unmindful of the claustrophobic terrors they cannot see. In the end, that lone figure will be swallowed by the forest, absorbed in its dark secrets forever. We see only smears of colored fragments, all that remains of people once alive with hope, and now lost forever in this forest of fear.
I was stunned at these surreal images. They run through the imagination as a nightmare, very real, yet at the same time utterly fictional. That's how surrealism expresses its ideas. The muted colors, distorted trees, and abstracted figures are haunting and mysterious. But the feelings these images express are all too real.
This is a marvelous set of images, Ruth. You sequence them with variety and pace. There is no redundancy. You use deliberate blur to distort and abstract detail, creating incongruity through abstraction and terrifyingly convey expressions of fear and retreat. Through it, you make all of us feel the same vulnerability you must have felt when you made these images. All of these are human values, and you share them here with all of us.
You are not only a remarkable photographer, but you show brilliance as a photo-editor as well. This is hardly the work of a beginning photographer. You are amazing.
