I snapped this picture because nobody would believe me if I told them. Naah,a terragon seascape with whales floating by...why not? Anything can happen if you just think it (and have photoshop installed on your computer) :-)

Whenever I want to escape reality for a bit, I certainly know who's gallery to go to! You've hit me where it counts with this gem of surrealism. Whales fascinate me and so does your talent. I love the colors you chose for this as well. I've got room for my busy desktop and will enjoy this. Thank you. favs.

Excellent capture, Terrence. It isn't often flying whales stay suspended long enough for someone to take their picture.

I can't believe you got a shot of the flying Whales. Very difficult to do. :-) Very well done, and a fantastic idea. Good job with the shadows they really add to the image.

Very, very cool. I think whales do fly, actually - through the water, at least! There is that vague resemblance to a 747! Do you know if they're right wales? And please, no silly jokes about "wrong" whales!

And I thought pigeon poop was bad...

Seriously though, this is very nice work. I think you could have turned up the terragen quality settings though, the water is a little pixelly.

I wish my photoshop could do that! :D

I love how this is a classic, and yet you put your own little twist on it. I think we can safely say you OWN the surrealist domain on this site. And another incredible image. I really should pick up terragen...

But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling, like dew, upon a thought produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions think and smile. Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind.

This is great! Reminds me of that scene in Fantasia 2000 (?) when the whales fly across the world. Very cool...

A great image, agree with most of the comments above. It'd be kind of neat to see this image in more of a bluish tone, too.

If they really could fly I would be scared about were they go to the bathroom. It could kill someone if they got hit, scarey. Very Cool Though. Suz

I think Megahtz is thinking of the dolphins in Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy;o)
Anyway - a fantastic creation in every sense of the word; gone straight onto my active wallpaper. It'd be great if they could fly - be much easier to ID them then instead of a glimse of fluke, flipper or fin!!

Megahtz is thinking of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams), and there is a flying\falling whale in that particular novel. There are dolphins in the novel as well though.
