Edit: Got special mention

And many thanks for those who helped me with your advices on the process. You are so important for me :hug:

So many times I feel that human beings have forgot that we are not only one in this world. There are so many little things what we might miss and so many great things that are older than we, have been here long before us and we are so used of them that we do not think about them. I afraid that people do not treasure the beauty of the nature enough. So many beautiful places have been turn apart because industry needs to get wider. So many lovely places I used to play in childhood what now are built with houses... I just wanted to remind us all that forests, nature.. wild and untouched - this is a beauty, the master of all arts, something what we can never create. It's magical, it's older than we and we need it - we should respect.

In so many ways I have always been "forest" people. I have spent all my summers in lovely in the middle of nowhere, in forest.. until in latest years the building boom has made there and the place has so much changed. And to be honest, it hurts - to see it all disappearing. But luckily here we still have places where in 10 kilometers you can be only human being. Still places to hide from the everyday cruel world. Still places, just to lay down, listen birdsong, busy bees on the field, smell the nature.

There can be peace inside us, there can be peace around us but we do not live in peace until we live in perfect harmony between nature, each other and ourselves. If we miss one, we won't have the peace anymore.

There are many symbols here, and colors are also symbolic - not intensive, more "earthy" colors. I used quite funny technique here - I desaturated to greyscale almost all the stock and then recolored. I had to recolor one stock but I just loved the effect I created and I decided to try it on other things too. I had it done only once (also because I used greyscale stock) but I defenetly love the outcome.

I hope that I managed to get my point to you even with my bad english. :)

I haven't heard too many recently (iTunes in America only has one album) but so far my favorites are All I Need, Angels, and Stand My Ground. But I still LOVE In Perfect Harmony, because it's like a lullaby, almost. What are your favorites?
Reply
:iconiardacil:
Iardacil Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2007
:) Yes I agree.. Angels are super... it was the first song I hear knowing that it was their.. Before I had heard many many times In perfect Harmony as my friend love the song and when I was in his place.. he had it always in his playlist.. but I never knew who sang it.. when I later got the album with that song I was so surprised.. woow.. this is theirs

:iconwickedelphaba:
WickedElphaba Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007
Yeah. I had never heard of them before, but I had heard a part of Angels in a YouTube video, and I loved it, but I didn't know who sang it. Once I heard Angels, it was like BAM! because I remembered it instantly.

I was shocked when all the websites said that they were dutch gothic rock, considering this song. It was funny... I hadn't heard any other songs yet.
