Very simple, yet very evocative, with a subtle but powerful composition.

You should do color more often, Bob.

Re: forest cathedral

Beautiful image Piet, wonderfully spotted and composed. I like Duck's rays (I am a sucker for rays) and hope he'll share his method. For drama, that version wins out. For peace, your initial version wins out. Since I"m more in need of peace right now, I'll stick with #1. Both great versions of a ver...

Re: The Rainbow Factory

Icecycles and rainbows, what an amazing day! Are those small bits of ice in the water or reflections of the rocks below? What do you think, are the birds happy with their work? S- Mostly reflections. They should be proud of churning out such nice rainbows and putting on classical theatre production...

Re: "Art" out of Ice?

My initial reactions are; fantasy moons, Oh I Love This One, and someone finally got a picture of Pangea! I really love the second, but wonder if you're getting close enough. S- Definitely not close enough, but it was a water plant, and would've needed a longer lens. Why is it that I never seem to ...

And a beautiful image. You are finding your "style" of seaside capture, and it's pretty wonderful.

Re: Adventures in Wanderland; Looking Through the Glass, A Series

Great shots, Matt. Your eye for photography is rather amazing, and it's been a joy to watch it grow more powerful. I am sure there are thousands of selfies, none of which have any artistic value. This does. And there are a dozen other ways you can process these to make more art of them. Really real...

Re: Adventures in Wanderland; Looking Through the Glass, A Series

#6: Shades of Green With permission, I took this photo through the front glass door of this studio. The artist paints only in shades of green, what he calls "Cape Light." He has hundreds in this room, the back room, and upstairs. He is primarily a woodworker but decided 30 years ago to take up pain...

Nice use of light here, especially that renegade beam running from the middle.

I like that you've shown the tree in the reflection but not in the upper part of the photo. Cool shot.
