There is a story behind this pic...SPECTACULAR IMAGE my friend (as always) :) Mysterious and I LOVE IT

..."there he was..so bright so full...sheets gently strewn on his bodice..he was alert nevertheless peaceful. Latent moisture resting on lattice of green, fermentation was a success and who knew as the fog lifted just what gifts would emerge"

Hi George,

A very dramatic landscape, something we see in opening scene of an epic movie, before it takes us deep into that jungle with all the drama unfolding. This image stir my imagination and inspires me with its beauty and grandure. Still in awe.

The perfect visual impact for the word "Dreamland". Awesome, both technical- and composition-wise! Bravo!
Best regards, László

Hi George,
Excellent, I'd like to hang it on the wall.
Very good work,really.
Regards Jiri.

The young raw earth as it might have appeared to its denizens billions of years ago . . . that is the kind of impression this picture conveys, Mr Veltchev.
The impression also verges on the experience of looking at an awe-inspiring work of art by some classic master of the yore.
The appeal of your creation is beyond words.
No wonder you are now disillusioned with these so-called 'nature photography' photo sharing platforms we mortals use to bandy about our roadside 'creations'.

Very nice capture George! The layering of elements and lighting are extremely appealing. :)
