  #209 Silhouette
Entry 1 of 17
   
 
Mirrored trees       ©2018 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       1st place, 200 points
1/13s, f2.8, ISO 500, 38mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Raw file processed in LR -- mainly tone curve; decreased exposure; and increased shadows, whites, vibrance.       Extra Info: The trees merge with their mirror images so imperceptibly that the eye doesn't perceive where one ends and the other begins. This reminds me that boundaries are not as discreet as we might imagine. When dies life begin -- at conception, at the first heart beat, at birth? When does it end -- the last breath, the last heart beat? Matter and energy are interchangeable. Transitions and transformations occur all the time in life, nature, and the universe without clear boundaries separating different states.

    This ticks so many boxes. A great silhouette, great reflections and wonderful colours. This could be entered into so many categories and would be the stand out image.

    Beautiful image all around. I guess I lack some level of imagination because it didn't inspire as many thoughts as noted in your extra info.

    Beautiful sunset and delicate tracery of the trees. The reflection is just perfect.

    Why not use Transitions as the title? a beautifully balanced composition with lovely blues merging into oranges.
