These Second Life Screenshots by Carey Chenault Look Like Landscape Paintings

Cajsa Lilliehook covers the best in virtual world screenshot art and digital painting

Carey Chenault is a landscape photographer and a very good one. I love how she has framed this serene with the magnolia and cherry blossoms. The landscaper also did a wonderful job. Look how the line of the rocks in the forefront follow the curving lines of the horizon. I love how the reflections are only slightly shifted by the movement of the water which is not perfectly still. The shadow from the rock behind the rowboat looks like a sail at first glance. A bit of serendipity in the reflection.

I love how this one leads the eye with the snowy road, the tracks of passing vehicles creating clear lines following the gentle curve of the road. The fir in the forefront provides perspective.


This picture was faved more than any other and it’s easy to understand why. There is so much to lead our eyes. The line of the porch, the road, and then what seems to be another road veering up and to the right.  There are two chairs on the porch that fall squarely into the leftmost section of thirds. The porch post and the stairs are one-third from the left and the top of the stairs and the top of the porch rail fall into vertical thirds, creating a subtle frame for the chairs. They are the stars inviting us to come set a spell. 

Carey Chenault’s photostream is a winner for those who love to explore Second Life. Each picture includes a SLURL landmark so you can go check it out yourself. They are all beautiful and she has a fascination with water and the reflections it creates, from perfect mirrors to distorted by water movement or colored by the sun, moon, and lighting. She understands composition and it shows. Definitely a find.
