Dream big!
Dream big!
There are some shadow issues on the right side of this image (as we view it), but I decided to post the image because it reflects that our world is only as big as our dreams allow it to be.The philosopher says,"Dream big"..... Please click image-Hi-res.

For the record, I did make several attempts to add elements that would explain the shadow on the right side of the portal. However, In my view, the added element always compromised the integrity of the theme.

I wanted the image to have a vast and spacious look that made the "big dream" theme a reality. The added elements subtracted from the depth and broad panoramic view the image has in its impoerfect state, so I opted to sacrifice realistic authenticity

for an image that more truly captured the spirit of the theme. I also believed that from a strictly thematic point of view, the cast shadows without a visible source could depict imagined forces in our life which sometimes act as obstacles to our

big dream. I wanted the image to say that imagined obstacles (unreal shadow realities, if you will) can never prevent us from experiencing a dream as big and wide as our hearts will give it permission to be.
