Brave Captain by catch---22 Brave Captain by catch---22
Captain,
There are doubts
Regarding
Your ability
To lead them,
The men,
Lead them.

There are doubts
In your ability.
There's too many blanks
In your analogies...


[link] firehose

this weathered yet stubbornly defiant fellow reminded me of the song... a favorite from a favorite band. :peace:

Devilish as it seems,you have cast a net, about a question of seeing for your observer. Unrequited love is answered in sustained limerence. There is a tight-rope balance of hope and uncertainty. From the perspective of barren tree scheme of the here and now habitually failing to fruit...the horizon is laid open to the possibilities of the blank slate of every tomorrow stretching out to the forest lined promise, that hope we must hold before us.

The arduous trek to these unrealized places to hold them down fast, framed in perspective is once rendered intoxicating and inspiring.

A beautiful photo with an extraordinary landscape. Yes, it definitely inpires a sense of emptiness, but... In this bare panorama exists something fascinating. I like it, there's an excellent definition, with nice colours. Furthermore, I find it really original: seeing such an awe-inspiring vista is not always possible, and this moment was seized really in a good way. The author used a well-chosen techique in order to keep the instant alive, and you can see the result. I think it gives a great and positive impact to the sight, thus it merits an excellent mark. To conclude with a last personal observation, well, I don't know exactly what could represent that tree, but it definitely makes more beautiful the landscape. Yes, yes, yes, a great job indeed :nod:
