Let's see...
about an hour and a half in Photoshop Elements 5.0

TreeInEye: :iconresurgere:

To speak truly, few adult persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child. The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood. His intercourse with heaven and earth becomes part of his daily food. In the presence of nature a wild delight runs through the man, in spite of real sorrows. Nature says -- his is my creature, and maugre all his impertinent griefs, he shall be glad with me.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
<from NATURE>

This picture is epic! The color of the nature inside the black and white eye is just insanely amazing. I absolutely love it! Thanks so much for posting!

OMG! :O This is EXACTLY what I was looking for!I'm doing a philosophy assignment on Emerson and it just so happens that you have put a quote from his reknowned essay, Nature, and is totally relatable to what I'm writing about. :dance: This is the exact image I need! Thank you so much! This is an absolutely brilliant piece of artwork! I love it! :love:

Hey, this is a pretty nice pic! In fact, come to think of it, you can probably sell it on a microstock photography website like the ones I listed below, under the nature search listing. I have been working on selling my own photos, and have several that were just listed the other day. It is a pretty cool system: companies can cut costs for photos by buying them from microstock sites rather than paying their own photographers, and you get paid every time an individual or company buys your photo(s). The signup for these kinds of accounts is free, and you get a cut of the pay. (the only reason it is free to register with them is because they take a portion of every sale.) Also, when a company buys your photo, they don't get the copyright, so they have to buy it a whole bunch of times, once for every time they use it! The photos never leave the microstock site, and will earn you passive income every time they sell for years to come. :D Exciting? Oh yeah! :) Have fun! (I would recommend bigstock the most, since they currently have a short waiting list for photo approval, and approvals are lightning fast!) Crestock and Shutterstock are tougher to get into since they have a skill level requirement, unlike the others, but will pay you a higher cut of your photo sales.) I would give it a go next time you find yourself with some free time, perhaps you will be a hit if you have more amazing photos like this one! :) Cheers! :) -Delkaoth [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]
