Back to medieval times by lucid-light Back to medieval times by lucid-light
A last minute decision to enter the "Fotolia 4: Stockpocalypse Challenge".

I thought about the Apocalypse. Seems to me that our european civilization made some backwards steps in the history already. I mean, we dumped the Greek democracy and end up living in monarchies. Well, I know the history better and things weren't that simple and the Greek democracy can't work in bigger states but still...
I imagine that any Apocalypse will throw us back in Middle Ages with no electricity, no cars, no computers, no connections...
And the sunlight represents Faith because people always come to believe some higher power when facing a catastrophy.
About the black and white style - I chose it partially because one of the stock photos was in b&w and also I wanted the picture to look like an old photo.

P.S. Constructive criticism disabled this time :lmao: because photomanips aren't my area of expertise :D

This is very nicely done. I fear, though, that your vision of an Apocalypse isn't dark enough. (That last isn't in any way a criticism of the work -- just a thought, or maybe a fear.)

Thanks :)
My vision of Apocalypse may be closer to the way how primitive nations perceived the world - a cycle of life and death, each death bringing new life and inevitably leading to death again. Unless we destroy Earth completely, there will always be a handful of survivors that will breed and pollute Earth again.

They always say how uncivilized things were then...but sometimes, I wonder if life was more interesting!
