Daily Deviation

Given 2007-07-07
Nocturne by *Pixydream: This deviant defines all of the good qualities of digital photography for me. His luminous works do not apologize for their digital origins by attempting to emulate film photography. Whether he photographs a flower or Versailles or sand dunes, all his works have his unique, digital signature. Besides, this strong crop is reminiscent of the atmosphere created in Jean Cocteau's 1946 film Beauty and the Beast. Truly magical. ( Featured by equivoque )

What an enchanted atmosphere! Wouldn't surprise me if the statues came to life any moment.
The lighting is so mysterious. Wonder if it's an HDR... but then you have such clarity in the contrasts.

Nope it's not HDR.. A single shot, no bracketting. Shot at sunset and converted in B&w via Lightroom.
Thanks!

Bruno, this photograph is so romantic, mysterious, eerie.
I think of Jean Cocteau and wonder "Ou est mon bete?"
