19 JULY 2016 - NEW CLOTHES FOR CASTALIAN VISIONS
Those of you who have visited Castalian Visions before will notice the new lay-out. Indeed: on the evening of this very powerful Full Moon I decided to create some new clothes for my site. The content has not changed much yet, but I intend to spend more time working on this project so lots of things will be adapted, changed and added in the future.
Of course the site will stay online and open during the changes.
Thank you for your visit, and enjoy your stay !
21 AUGUST 2016 - THUMBNAILS TO ADD MORE CONTENT
All details and wip images in the traditional media galleries now work with thumbnails and pop-up images. Many details from the work-in-progress phase that up to now had to disappear when the coloured ones were added, are being added again. By using thumbnails I can now add more content to the pages and at the same time give them a better and less cluttered appearance.
23 AUGUST 2016 - REPLACING BAD COLOURS PART I
I noticed that the colours of some images were really bad and gave an unfaithful image of the real works. So I will be replacing the bad ones with better ones. In addition, 1983-Organic Cavity got a detail, and 2001-Sleeping Dryad now has three.
Please do keep in mind that no computer screen can reproduce my real colours.
25 AUGUST 2016 - REPLACING BAD COLOURS PART II
All 25 works whose images were too far off - none will ever be correct - have been redone, and several also got more details.
The four that have undergone the most spectacular changes have been added below with a direct link. The others you will have to discover for yourselves: on the overview pages of the Galleries they have a lighter border than the others.
Sanctuary II now has 14 details (yes) and I also found a photo of a black and white version of it. Which has been added of course. The one I personally like the most is 2001 - Sunken Cities X, which now finally radiates the poetry of the original.
The next thing I will be focusing on are the photographs. I have much better software now, not only for RAW but also for the older jpg's.
And perhaps the Captain's Log, which is intended to replace the musings, thoughts, etc that I now tend to add to Facebook. Breaking loose from there feels like a necessity to me as I feel too manipulated and observed by FB's barely hidden intentions, which always leave me with a bad taste in my mouth.
