did this picture to remind on the nuclear power plant accident in chernobyl 20 years ago. the background is an image from the zone which is still not habitable and will remain so for very long time. this picture and some inspiration is from this site. Some other stock is from sxc.

You have some strong pieces in your galleries and this is no exception.

A very accomplished manipulation. I think in comparison to some of your other offerings, this may not be your best. I still like it, make no mistake about that notion. For me, what does elevate this one, is the subject matter, first and foremost and then your art and creative take on the tragedy.

Hmm, maybe by tackling such an emotional issue (at least IMHO), you may have difficulty garnering praise. We do tend to bury our heads in the sand to avoid the unpleasant. I applaud you for taking on this challenge ... and the more I look at this image ... the more I like it.

Thanks for sharing your talent and reminding us of that which should not be buried in the history books. Look forward to a tour of your other works. :o)

Every morning I will rest my arms a while upon the windowsill of heaven, gaze upon God, and with that vision in my heart turn strong to meet my day.

Very powerful and creative image. Iím familiar with the web site you used as source of inspiration. It tells incredible story and I would recommend everyone to read it. 20 years ago I was in Lithuania, which is not far from Chernobyl. Lucky the wind was blowing away from us. You did great job with manipulation. High marks from me.

Powerful image. And thanks for the info and the site. This image tells quite a story! I like the sepia color you used with a touch of red color. You did a great job on this. Many thanks...

I really like your choice of color tones and your image collage is very affective to get your message across... the only part that I do not see is on the bottom right, I am not sure of the image that you put there... maybe up the opacity of that so that it doesn't just look like some blobs of black color. (this is under the warning symbol that I am talking about)

You have without doubt the most interesting, varied and fantastically put together gallery that I have ever seen. Apologies to those whose galleries I have not yet come across but I could spend all day commenting on your images. Unfortunately I do have a job so I will stick with just this one as it really stands out for me. I can see that it took a lot of work to put it together and of course it has real depth and meaning.
Well done!

The imagery in this picture is very haunting. Especially, it matches a poem I wrote called "Lost", about child abuse. Abuse obliterates the body, mind and soul of a child just as radiation does.
Thank you.

Very well conceived and executed compilation of well-chosen images. I like the way you allow the images to tell the story. I'm not sure what I mean by this. At least, I'm not sure how to explain what I mean by it in words. I maybe lack the terminology for commenting on photographs/manipulations which I very rarely do unless asked to comment specifically.

It is all the more disturbing for the its apparent peacefulness and the happiness of the ghostly inhabitants...
