The Last Wonder World of Human by fstarno The Last Wonder World of Human by fstarno
The Last Wonder World of Humankind it's a vision of how human can destruct by themselves the place where they live for the sake of profit.

You can see in this image, an imaginary version of the biggest construction in the world, the Chinese nuclear power reactor Qinshan IX. This scenario is inspired by the global warming issue and also by the very fast rising economy of certain Asian countries such as China. People mostly agrees that something needs to be done about global warming and climate change. However, most people does'nt seems to do something really significant in their live even if the situation is urgent.

I would like to do a contribution to any serious group, organism, company related to environment who want to use this image. I can send this image (a high-resolution for any sort of prints or web) for free, as long as it is use for environment purposes.

I worked around 8 hours to achieve this image, using only Photoshop and a "degrainer" software. I used only one photo to start this artwork that I shot when I was in China in November 2007. The main idea was to show an horrible and destructive human construction into a divine sky and beautiful saturated atmosphere to increase the idea of opposition in the same image.

Mmm... but reactors never produce black smoke, just vapor from the cooling system, and no raditaion. The fuel burning plants are more poluting than a nuclear power plant. :)

that's one huge chimney!! :O

I like the flash/reflexion effect and I adore how you manage to create such a seamless mix of 3d, photography and 2d art :)

The reflection in the window is really what gives this picture its kick. It makes this world in the picture seem tangible. It makes it seem real. I love the lighting in it too, it offers very nice effect as well as the river, the river is very nicely constructed and placed. As for the birds and smoke, they just make the picture amazing. Wonderfully done. Marvelous job! ^^
