Letting Go by IllusiveSpatula Letting Go by IllusiveSpatula
Nobody ever said that saying goodbye was easy...

When Huey's Cooking Adventures just doesn't thrill me. :laughing:

Those endearing words, potrayed in such a simple, symbolic, bitter sweet manner. Execution may not be perfect, but sometimes its the idea that counts.

I like this. It has implications and suggestions that don't need words. I like how the light background still has details, too.
IMHO, I would have used a slightly short shutter speed (then adjusted any contrast issues later) just to make it more crisp); unless you wanted a sense of movement, in which case, kudos :)

Thank you! I definitely agree with you, a faster shutter speed would've been ideal in retrospect, but I was pretty unfamiliar with Photoshop at the time. Even the basics of Photoshop open up new worlds. :D

Thank you for the kind comment, I'm really happy you like this. :aww:

"Look at me, my depth perception must be off again,
You got much closer than I thought you did,
I'm in your reach,
You held me in your hands...

But could you find it in your heart,
To make this go away,
And let me rest in pieces?
(Let me rest in pieces)"
