Switzerland Collage by kuschelirmel Switzerland Collage by kuschelirmel
This was my mum's Christmas present - printed at 60x25cm and framed :D

When we were in Switzerland on holidays she said to me: "I would love it if you could make something 'the way you do' with the pictures from the holidays." and I said "sure" and was planning on doing it right when we got back. But you know the way inspiration comes and goes on its own terms, so it got finished in early December instead.

I've come to realize that with my own photos, I need to get some distance from the actual picture taking before I can manipulate them into something new - if I try right away I always think "but it was beautiful the way it was" and nothing seems to do it justice ^^;

Some technical stuff at last: as I said above, the original is 60x25cm at 300dpi and I used pictures taken by myself during the holidays in Switzerland in September (including the marmot - it was the only one I even saw because they were shy... hunting season will do that) - the only pics not taken in Switzerland are the clouds (they're from around here) as it just was not cloudy in the least hehe. You may even recognize one part or other from my gallery ;)

Sorry for the watermark, but as I had to upload a rather big picture so you can see what's on it, I thought it better to protect it a bit more than usual.

i think this is really interesting because i really like the pastel type feel to the colours and the texture.

Beautiful composition of images not only from the concept but the colours as well, and such a divine gift for your mother.
And I defiantly recognize these :heart:

Lovely job using the mountains to create almost a panoramic feel to the three
images. And beautiful color and texture work ( a hallmark of your deviations ).
You have a wonderful sense of which hues ( or is it shades ? ) of colors to use
in your work.
