Quite an impressive painting to find on a ceiling. At first it reminded me of the winds that came from the mouth of the god Aeolus. A nicely composed image with great colors. Best of luck in the contest.

That is stunning. Except for the moon, the space-ship and the stars above, it looks like a real sunrise. Was this ceiling made for a special play or is the painting a permanent part at the theater? Do you know? You have this work of art well photographed and framed. The photo is balanced and framed well.

    Thank you, Cleo, so much for your kind review and interest. It was not done for a particular play. I think it was just part of the theater's original decoration. Will ask (if I can remember).

This is a truly beautiful scene, and before I had read the notes properly, I thought the painterly effect was because of the edit. Then of course I understood that this was a painting of a ceiling, and it must be very special to look up and see this.

The colors are almost beyond this world, and the photo is nice and sharp with a perfect exposure.

I also like the format you have cropped the photo into, and I also think this is a different and very nice entry into this contest. Indeed well taken, and I wish you luck with the contest.

    Thank you so much for your encouragement and for your very kind remarks. Am always very flattered when you give good marks to one of my pictures for I consider you are a good artist.
    THIS IS NOT A PLOY TO GET GOOD COMMENTS FROM YOU. Have always had this opinion over the years being on FanArtReview. Thanks again.

This is so pretty, it's something that I might see on the page of a storybook about fairies! I love the motion that shows in this work with the clouds all moving upward, the colors are very dreamy too. This is well focused, the image is clear, exposure is good bringing forward the natural colors and tones. Well presented! Best wishes to you in the contest!

I love to see work like this especially around old buildings or in theaters. I would like to get the chance to look at the many types of these around the world but that want happen in this lifetime, but boy it would be nice. Keep up the great finds and thanks for sharing. JackJr.

    Thanks Galia for you nice review. I was waiting for the play to start and just happened to look fully up at the ceiling and saw this love scene.

What an interesting entry for the contest. This has such a dreamy appearance like its out of an enchanting story.
What an impressive ceiling!
If it were not for the moon and planets in the scene I would've though it was taken
and modified. Great entry, best wishes in the contest.

This is a well taken shot of nature as seen on the ceiling of a NY theatre.. You have framed it well. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good luck!
