Flying Ships Harbour by annewipf

It is strange to note how the brain runs: ships usually sail on the sea, so - when the picture doesn't follow the use, as it is here - the brain change mountains into sea if necessary, to be conform to reality. I changed the title and add the notion of flying ships, I wrote in my comment that there is no sea but mountains, people continue to see a roaring sea...

What about you?

Please, tell me in the comment, I'm curious to see YOUR perception of this picture. :D

I did it, I opened a new group, my first one. :iconlegitimate-stock:


Is there a manipulator who didn't ever had some problems with stocks? The purpose of this group is to help manipulators who search useful and legitimate stocks. So it is mainly focused on 4 categories:

- Good quality models not too much restrictive. We will only accept good quality pictures, allowing dA prints and not too restrictive in their use. No commercial use - except for dA prints - is accepted: so take a look at the rules before using them for a commercial use.

- Premade Backgrounds using legitimate stocks, with the required links and the permission of the stock providers to redistribute their stock in a premade background.

- Precut Pictures done from photos taken by the same stock provider. We will reject all precut pictures done with external stocks

- Background Photos which may be used for doing premade backgrounds.

I hope you'll find this group useful and that il will value stock providers who respect the rules.

Ca y est, j'ai ouvert un nouveau groupe, mon premier :iconlegitimate-stock:


Quel est le manipulateur qui n'a jamais rencontré de problème avec l'une des images stock qu'il a utilisées ? Le but de ce groupe est de lui éviter ce genre de désagréments en lui proposant des stocks utiles et légitimes. C'est la raison pour laquelle il est principalement axé sur les trois catégories de stocks qui posent habituellement le plus de problèmes:

- Des modèles de bonne qualité, sans règles d'utilisation trop restrictives. Nous n'acceptons que les images de bonne qualité, qui autorisent l'impression sur dA des images finies et ne s'avèrent pas trop restrictives dans leur utilisation. Les stocks qui refusent une utilisation commerciale (à l'exception des impressions sur dA) sont acceptés, donc soyez prudent avant d'utiliser un stock pour un usage commercial, vérifiez d'abord ses règles d'utilisation.

- Des "premade backgrounds" (arrière-plans déjà composés) utilisant des images stock légitimes (disposant d'une licence autorisant leur utilisation, ou faisant partie du domaine public et le signalant - attention, ce n'est pas le cas des images piochées sur Google, par exemple - ou ayant reçu l'autorisation écrite du photographe pour cet usage), avec les liens requis vers les images d'origine et/ou leurs créateurs et l'autorisation de ces derniers à utiliser leur stock pour en recréer un autre, en l'occurrence un "premade background".

- Des images pré-découpées dont la photo originale a été prise par le même photographe. Toute image pré-découpée provenant d'une source extérieure sera refusée.

- Des photos d'arrière-plan pouvant être utilisées pour la création de "premade backgrounds".

J'espère que vous trouverez ce groupe utile et qu'il valorisera les fournisseurs de stock qui respectent les règles.</b>

The theme: "Clair de Lune" by Paul Verlaine

Your soul is a chosen landscape
Where charming masqueraders and bergamaskers go
Playing the lute and dancing and almost
Sad beneath their fanciful disguises.

All sing in a minor key
Of victorious love and the opportune life,
They do not seem to believe in their happiness
And their song mingles with the moonlight,

With the still moonlight, sad and beautiful,
That sets the birds dreaming in the trees
And the fountains sobbing in ecstasy,
The tall slender fountains among marble statues.

I'll participate and hope many other challengers. :D

Clair de Lune by annewipf

:iconmanip-contest: organise un nouveau Fun Fun Fun Challenge

Le thème: "Clair de Lune" par Paul Verlaine

Votre âme est un paysage choisi
Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques
Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi
Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques.

Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur
L'amour vainqueur et la vie opportune
Ils n'ont pas l'air de croire à leur bonheur
Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune,

Au calme clair de lune triste et beau,
Qui fait rêver les oiseaux dans les arbres
Et sangloter d'extase les jets d'eau,
Les grands jets d'eau sveltes parmi les marbres.

J'y participe, venez nombreux. :D
