My Spotlighted Images

Bettina from United States

Beautiful and evocative, Pavan! The dark vignette gives it such an atmosphere. The white bird in the distance looks to me like an angel just as much as a ghost. Perhaps it is its better half. It's a beautiful story you're telling in any case.

About your citation : do you know the film "Fantôme d'amour" (Ghost Love) of Dino Risi with Marcello Mastroiani and Romy Schneider ? It's a very impressive and wonderful film...
Your shot is beautiful. Thank you Pavan for your very king comment ;)

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

I think of the Crow movies looking at this. People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.
