Wake Up! by alltelleringet Wake Up! by alltelleringet
She became absorbed, oblivious to the passage of time. You can pretend to be asleep, but you can't pretend to be awake.

Volvo made a feature of me when I was creating this piece, have a look here, like a well produced BTS video: youtu.be/9dk9q5Qakdk
Shot in three rounds, first the trees in a lake, the girl in a pool and the trees from a crane.

Would love to hear what you think about it, where is she, how did she get there? What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it?

EDIT: big thanks for the DD!!! :D

I really like it, great work! One small detail: the fact that her hair is perfect doesn't convey the idea that she just woke up. The bed stuff suggest that she was asleep, but her clothing and hairdo convey the opposite.
But I really like everything else. The feeling of hopelessness. She slept but it didn't make the problems go away, they only got worse. This picture really talks to me.

I really love this, but one thing about the trees that's really bugging me (and now that I've seen it I can't unsee it) is that the ripples coming from the trees in the foreground suggest movement from the trees when they clearly aren't moving. The trees in the background also have no such ripples to them.

Congratulations on the DD! :party:

It would be a frightening situation in real life. Is the water rising? If so, the tallest trees in sight are about to go under.

Very good job. The mist gives the image a mysterious quality. Almost looks like another world. A space traveller who chose the wrong spot to make camp?

Hmmm... The first thing that came to my mind from the thumbnail and title was a warning about global warming. The pillows looked like the last ice cubes floating around in submerged Finland after the sea levels rose. Yes, feeling optimistic today!

There are a lot of photo manipulations and Photoshop has become very popular and even commonplace. Your dedication, skill and vision is an example of the artistic potential photography and manipulation can have. Great piece and gallery :)
Also i like the distinctive stillness that connects and runs through your work.

This image is truly a serene kind of beautiful, though it seems almost terrifying the longer you look . Like when you need to wake up or you will drown in the dream that has already drowned out everything but the tips of the trees. No escape unless you wake.

That's an insane art you've got here! Great job! 

As for the thing that come in mind...for me it is a mysterious dreamland.
It is like she just woke up (There seems to be a pillow in her hand and a blanket in the other), but not from sleep, rather, she woke up from reality, that changed around her. She is not dreaming, yet, it feels like the land around here is surreal and mysterious, I'd dare to say melancholic. The trees are just barely making it out of the water and the sky is grey with rain passed or soon to come, like the sky itself just cried, drowning the world. For me, it feels indeed like she woke up in a dream, rather than reality. And it's kind of intriguing, I must say.

It could be the intro of some excellent videogame.  REally original this see through the water...well i don't know similar manip. like this. In my opinion you could develop further this topic because in a world of over saturated manipulations it is a way unexplorated and you have the power to do this.

I always admire your work back

Very interesting, your images.
I mentioned this before.
Also interesting, in which one or the other, as you let them arise.
I thought for a long time, photographs are to reflect reality.
A bit at least.
Your reflections stimulate very for thought.
