Tantalo's Hope by jonjacobsen Tantalo's Hope by jonjacobsen
Texture added, otherwise unaltered. That means me, the apple, plant and border is real. YES, real.

Tantalus is punished in Hades by not being able to eat or drink, as the water in the lake dries out, and the fruits in the trees are lifted by the wind each time he tries to reach either.

I would love one! It may have to go on a Christmas list for late gifts, or something to save up for. I have a space for one under 30x30cm, what sizes are available?
Thanks

Magnificent ! This is a Wonderful Composition , and I Love the whole Greek Mythology aspect of
it too ! Thanks for including the link to the site which offers the background story for the Myth .

I also do not Agree with the "Overseers" of this site forcibily moving your Photographic
Image into the Photomanipulation section . You staged the various apects of the subject matter
in real time , you didn't "Manipulate" them on the computer .

its annoying that its been moved to photomanipulation when it is not, but it is quite surreal and easy to see how you could think it was just a manip.

maybe you could include a small description of what you've actually done. is that a painting on the wall? did you paint it?

ps love the photo!

Well, i don't think i should explain all the hours i spent preparing the picture to let the others understand that this is not a photo-manipulation (more than adding a texture).
I think that if i just say "Texture added, otherwise unaltered. That means me, the apple, plant and border is real. YES, real.. It's because i'm telling the truth.
If the other people don't believe, then it's their problem :D

(well i am pretty angry and you were the second person i thought to write to so sorry :giggle: :)
