A flipped reflection taken this evening.

Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.

Thanks

From right to left?







Or left to right?

I'm not sure what to say. It is evocative, and I think well composed. The high contrast and blur make it a bit disconcerting and not as easy to look at as I would like. I keep going back and forth whether that is good or not. I think it is growing on me... I have to get a little back from the monitor, let my focus go and relax... then it comes right...

I like it, John, though I might try flipping it horizontally for left-to-right movement.

I like it. Reminds me of a great game called Limbo. Funny I thought the same thing as DonH also.

Hey John,

Very creative! Having that person in the shot too is the perfect touch.

CW100/Jim/Bob,

Thanks for looking and the kind words. I'm glad you like it.

I have added another taking Don and Justin's idea of flipping horizontally as well.

What do you all think?

I really dig this shot! After looking at them both, I think I like the first one (man walking right to left) better, though I can't quite say why. Perhaps because the implied diagonal from taller tree to shorter tree then leads top left to bottom right, so as I "read" the photograph I go through each of the trees and end up on the person which is to me the element that brings the photo together.

I like right to left. We read from left to right - top to bottom. That naturally leaves us pondering the man and not empty space, and also keeps our eyes from continuing out of the frame.

Left - Right for occidental audience.

Right - Left for oriental audience.

Also, I'd find it interesting if you carefully selected the man and flipped him so that he is walking out of frame - thus violating a rule of composition for effect.

Nice scene, by the way!
