Stunning pics and I have ‘shared’ this on my blog so that more can perhaps benefit from seeing these. The collection really gives inspiration to try something out. The image by Lєaтнєянєaят really made me stop in my tracks.
I’d also recommend any users try clicking on the names under the photos here to see more great work.
This is a very inspiring photo collection! I particularly liked the Deussentrieb photo, it created a fantastic alien-like image. Thanks for sharing!

Great selection of really creative images. Thank you for the chance of seeing it and getting inspired:)
Love them all, I’ll always found shadows to be extremely effective for enhancing a photo. One of mine:
Shadows put the subject in value, and unveil its personality, creating a whole story in the viewer’s mind. Nice collection!
Some really great shots, definitely gives me something to think about
All are nice but some are more nicer than others. I prefer the photo from the dog from Robert Couse-Baker! Mysterious.
