Circle of Life by Rick-TinyWorlds Circle of Life by Rick-TinyWorlds
I love the idea that everything in nature is part of a big circle.
That if you die, you get a part of other beings again.

Goodbye little snail.

Congrats! As third place winner of "Contest Your best photo of 2015" + "CONTEST vote your 3 favourite photos" I am to grant you a critique and a watch.
This is a beautiful whimsical image where you have combined composition lighting and Dof to perfectly set the subject.  It looks as though it could be found in a fairy circle in an enchanted wood.  The bokeh and capture of the barely there but just perfect sunlight help give this magical quality.  The only problem I could possibly have is the unbalanced greenery in the foreground.  It interrupts  the plane of focus and is just a tad distracting.  Overall as all your viewers seem to agree this is an excellent piece!

Sieht super schön aus! Mir gefällt das Licht und wie das Moos aus, bzw hinter dem Schneckenhaus hervorkommt.
Auch das mit dem Schatten ist wirklich faszinierend - toller Schuss! (:

Wow! So I haven't been around these parts in a while, and I just came here and saw this picture as a daily deviation. I thought that it looked like something you would take, and when I opened it, it turned out I was right! Congratulations!

This is a really great picture too! Did you find it growing like this?

Thank you Photometheus! Yes, we haven't heard from each other in a while, taking some time to look trough your stuff right now. I really like the idea of eternity, digging trough all the stories.

Ok, let me unveil to you how this photo was made. I took a small "branch" of the moss you can see growing next to the snail and placed it in her shell.

Yes, I'm a bit sad when I see dead snails. But the thought that it means they returned back into the circle of life, that from their death comes new life, makes me look at it with a bitter sweetness. Thank you!

Es ist aber auch toll. Das beginnt bei dem Farbenspiel, vor allem aber gefällt es mir, wie das frische Grün aus dem toten Gehäuse wächst.
