Photo - Lightyears_3 by tigaer Photo - Lightyears_3 by tigaer
part three of the series...

part one -> [link] (includes the creation story)

part two -> [link]

this time a traditional photo look. :)

the story behind the title lies in the eye of the beholder and can be interpreted differently. i have chosen the title because of the ages light needs to get somewhere. it's hard to imagine what the lightbeams, we see in the shot, must have seen on their journey down to earth. in the end they lose all their shiny strength and create such mystical sceneries like the one we see in this shot. a precious end for a beam of light... wouldn't you say? :)

happy viewing... =)

What type of camera is this, and how did you get the rays of light? I've tried with a Kodak camera before up in a barn near my house, but I feel that Kodak is... terrible. Anyway, could you give me a little info on the camera?
tigaer Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
that shot was taken with a minolta dimage 7i. you can usually find all info on the lower right of the description. rays aren't easy to capture. i had quite some luck there.
Stratocrush Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2006
Thanks. I saw that info in the section you mentioned, but I've never heard of the brand before.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that your art is very good. In fact, I've been working on making every part of my computer fantasy-based. I've got a logon screen of a dragon flying far off in the sunset, my guest account's background is Erat [link] , and my own background is... Well, I can't find the link, but it's Ephel Duath. Anyway, it was great that those fit my screen resolution, too ^^ Keep up the great work!

Geezus! What a lucky (or well planned ^^) shot! The light beams cut so clearly through the shadows and the forest soil looks like a well treausured secret brought to light. 1+

shadow-chick Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2004
Wow. I really enjoy this piece. I definitely like the light beams, and the excellent position of the scenery that lights up because of it. I'm so jealous. :giggle: Awesome.
Ka-Va Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2004
I think it needs shorter exposure time.
abe123 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2004

zamm Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2004
I love how some parts are out of focus, and the light effect is delicious.
A great shot.
tigaer Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
you're the first one who seem to have noticed it. i did slight manip work on the darker areas as part of my quality enhancement. so i left the darker areas a bit unscharp to bring the eyes to the right place... into the light. :) - thanks for your feedback.

The rays of sunlight and the patches of ground lit up by the sun are beautiful indeed. A good capture
freaktrigger Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
This one seems almost split into sections...
the arc of rays on the left, coupled with the curve of the tre forms a remarkably attractive image, that captures the eyes easily... the right hand side however, costs this image much with its blankness...
i can only fault this by saying that it seems like an image in a mismatched frame...
dear god the rays and ground look beautiful though.
xDestitutex Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
Also für mich ist dies definitiv das beste der 3 bisher erschienenen Bilder.
Die Lichtstrahlen erzeugen eine richtige Abtrennung zwischen 2 Welten... Links die gute und helle Welt rechts due böse gegenseite. Es sieht richtig asu wie eine Wand aus Lichtstrahlen... einfach nur klasse eingefangen...
Und um ehrlich zu sein... je öfter ich aufs Bild schau je mehr interpretationen kommen mir, aber dann würde es hier wieder nie enden ^^
Also mach ich es kurz und sag einfach:
Wie schon erwähnt das für mich Beste Bild, wo unglaubliche Strahlen zu sehen sind und diesesmal sogar die Kontraste des ganzen Bildes stimmen. Und die kleine Lightyears-Schrift am rechten Rand ist auch wieder super geworden... die mag ich ja so von dir ^^
Mich würde es freuen, wenn du nochmal so ähnlich wunderschöne Bilder einfangen könntest, denn ich liebe solche Lichtstrahlen, sie erzeugen bei mir immer so ein Gefühl von übernatürlichen. :)

bookdiva Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
Beautiful, filled with mood and mystery...nice angle, beautiful rays and tones, loveliness.

Light years...if only we could hear the sounds from centuries ago, held within them.

ebba Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
love the view, its beautiful :heart:
bka-ratte Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
well...not bad but most of your former shots looked better to me. Probably it only seems to me but I think it's too....well I really don't know.
In fact the beam of light is splendid.

But (sorry for that) I don't like the title design. It's not your well-know style of typo in a title....but anyway!
fish0o Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004
