Cutting Dawn by alltelleringet Cutting Dawn by alltelleringet
A piece I've been working on for some time that was actually done already a few months ago. Foreground is shot on Faroe Islands, background is from Sweden and Czech Republic, Moravia. I would love to hear your thought and what you think of it. What is she up to?

I love this piece, it spoke to me. The composites are very clean and offer a realistic, but still stylized appearance. The light coming from the upper right-hand corner is attractive and the highlights on other parts of the image are very believable. I think that, as you said in the title, this girl is cutting open the new dawn; she is eager and impatient to see the new day. I see that she had a past that wasn't to her liking, and she wants to move forward with her aspirations and start again. She looks very determined, and I believe she has made up her mind about a new path she wants to follow. Also, the darkness in the background continues to stress that her past might have been unpleasant, which is why she is taking such drastic measures, with the giant pair of scissors, to change her life. She is a strong, defiant, ambitious, young lady, and though her future is uncertain, that will never stop her. :heart:

Maybe she sheared too many of those sheep of yours with too big of a scissor and broke the system. :D

I've looked at a lot of your pitures and I think they're really beautiful, emotional, and little bit eerie. I really dig it. Nice job. Great imagination.

Amazing work! Clap 

I also think that the girl needs this big  scissors to cut the tie with her current life, which is  as dark and stormy as the background. So she can begin a new happy and colourful  life

I don't know why this piece speaks to me so much, but it does. It's been years since I've added something not fandom-related to my favorites list, but that's about to change in a moment.

That is "the dark Sky turning into a Paper" she has cut at the very right Edge of the Picture :D

I saw that :) What I meant was that I did not see it at first. I just saw the big scissor, then I noticed the "fake" mountain. I like art where I have to spend time to see it all :)

As the curtain of night parts, she journeys forward in the early dawn light to work hard at something full of beautiful and profound meaning. Maybe she is going to cut the golden net off of a majestic giant swan?
