photoblog image The growth within

The growth within

Thanks for all your comments and visits over the past few days, I appreciate it very much. Still in the experimental zone. Been really busy as usual but managed to pull this one out. I am still not entirely happy with it, but it will have to do till I can improve and produce some stronger.

I have my interpretation of this image but I want hear what u think. Does this image speak to U?

I will definitely like to organise an exhibition on your self portraits...they are self portraits right?.
sk: yeap self portraits which are a killer to do, but very enjoyable in the final product. I may be doing an exhibition soon, we'll see
Lovely Ade....what I feel the picture evokes, is freedom. I don't know..or maybe I just feel like being free...whatever it is...It provoking somethingg, and i love it!!
sk: glad u love it, its about freedom and liberty, without a concern for anything

Habaa Asiko, you are giving me so much to think of. I think i need some lessons from you dude. I have a teachable spirit....
sk: thanx O. I watch too my sci-fi and I used read comics, a lot of my inspiration comes from that. If u watch a film like 300, thats the sort of stuff I love to look at visually to inspire my brain

Well my friend, it says to me "for crying out loud, help me Lord"!! This is another very powerful and excellent example of photography as an art form. Superb. Many regards, Neil.
sk: thanx Neil for ur input
I feel the title. Growth within, a new awareness of the power within. I feel its an expression of your present reality. You are attempting to frame a spiritual experience. You saw this picture before you took it. You designed it before you worked on it. You are opening channels here. Didnt think anyone could shock me as much as Suby. He has a rival. Im upgrading to your frequency. You are brave and fearless. i dont know you but i admire you already
sk: flattering words Busola, thanx very much, I am just trying O

You can't top this for supplication, àsìkò.
It is beautiful. You have a winner here! wink
Best shot on shutterchance ever!
I'm begging for photoshop tips from you oh!
Crazy!! That's what it says to me....
Lmaoo @ Deji77.

So, I've been wondering....this painting on your body?...is it photoshop....or you paint urself as well?...

XxWeirdoxX
Speachless!! did you "hear" that? I "said" SPEECHLESS.
true masterpiece, extrmely well done!!!
it looks like it's going to explode to another dimension, from within, very very powerfull
I do agree with the comment that this is in my eyes on of the best images on Shutterchance. Take it to the artform, I feel very little now...:d
Keep on giving us this kind of inspiration!!
its well done.
I don't like this one as much as the others. It's just a little over the top for me. But that's just a matter of taste.
Powerful!!!

Great job! smile
I like this very much and growth within is pretty apt. I can almost see this man growing inside that body and shedding the present skin. Too much sci-fi, non? Don't mind that Suby o. Man boobs are the ish right now. lol!

Men, fabulous piece of art. Really wonderful. He looks like he's locked up in a cage and is imagining being free.Wish i had the patience, one of these days i'll need training.

I like the composition, his body is positioned in a kind of cliche stance, but the lighting makes it unique. To better present him I would get real greenery at his knees or have a couple strands of tall grass next to his back
