"The Stock Tank"

Here's one from my archives that never fails to elicit a moment of cogitation before the ultimate truth and the meaning of life become instantly crystal

Great shades of Jerry Uelsmann. Nicely done, Dave.

Congratulations, you've managed to create something that keeps me coming back to it. It's not technically perfect but there is definitely a quality about this image that is alluring.

The other interesting thing I find this image does is it makes my own mind go off on "what if" trips. I find new ideas and inspiration every time I look at this image.

Awesome!

Bob,
To be compared favorably with Uelsmann...that's some compliment!
Many thanks,
Dave

Two reflections?
Right you are...and now the third step?

Matt,
It was your epic image of confounding lines, angles, submersions, and reflections that stimulated me to post this!

Many thanks,
Dave

That it warranted return viewings is rewarding!...and that it engenders "what ifs" in the minds of others...even better!
Many thanks, Duck.

Whatever you did (halved, flipped, reflected???), it makes for an arresting image that I really enjoy looking at again and again. It is a fantastical image and I like the mystery of it, so it isn't necessary for me to know what went into it. Very effective!
