the Cover Up by alltelleringet the Cover Up by alltelleringet
An image I've been working on for the past months. Photographed in Sweden, except the desert which was photographed in Cape Verde. Here is a photo from the location: instagram.com/p/jhIbOIszMB/

I would love to hear your thoughts on it! Improvements, Good/Bad. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it?

edit: Thank you so much for the DD! <3

the Cover Up by alltelleringet

This iconic work of photomanipulation deserves to be seen by all for its graceful integration of many photographs, all of which were taken by the artist himself. Moreover, the image is incredibly well-composed and makes good use of light and subtle color. The contrast of the dark clouds against the brighter foreground represents a refreshing shift in mood and perspective. ( Featured by Aeirmid )

I like this piece very much. So much so that I put it in my Inspirational Recognition folder! If you'd like to read the flash fiction that I wrote in response to this, you may read it here: Taking it Down Again.

Congratulations on your DD! :excited:

This is amazing. At first I couldn't quite understand how you did it (until I saw the category hihi). It is really great!!! As others have said it before me, this could be interpreted as the cover up of a gloomy world. At first, I thought he's making a better world for himself but the other interpretation seems more logical. Congratulations on the DD! It really deserves it. Finally I wanted to ask you if I could show this to my class because we have an English project and this image is perfect for it. Again congratulations on your beautiful photomanipulation!!

it is so photo-realistic that if i had a complete lack of logic and common sense, I'd say this was a raw picture taken straight from a camera.

When I first saw this, I immediately thought, covering up the gloom and the sadness for a more happier and shinier life ahead, with people outdoors and working together to make a better image of the world. ^-^ This is a mind twister for myself and I absolutely love what you did to the two pictures. Congrats on the Daily Deviantion aswell!

I would say it's a man putting hard work in making it a good day for him, even when it's not. I like that notion - like when you think this is the worst day in your life (or just a particularly bad day, because your sandwich burned, you missed your bus etc.) you should still try to look for the positive things and try to make it a good day anyway.

Hm, I see that the dark and rainy side is being covered up by a sunny day. I believe this is a metaphor for someone going through depression or something. They pretend to be happy, when in reality they are very sad.

I really loved what you did with it! :D
