On Reflection

Reflection; the act of, not the image of, is a way of reconsidering where we are in relation to reality. Reflecting pools have for a long time been places where one could contemplate the difference between the illusion and the real. All we need is a small breeze to see the one fracture into a shimmering and fragmentary non image, while the other stays as it is. And then when stability returns we can match the upside down image to the real once again.

    I know it isn’t my image. I hear what you are seeing. But the image is much stronger cropped above the tree line. No need to show the sky, just the reflection, especially since you are writing about it.

      Duckshot, you still don’t get it. It’s not about cropping or fixing things after the shot. The idea is to make what feels like the best image you can under the circumstances of the moment. There is only one time when making a photograph, now! Later is for people who can’t make up their minds, or have little idea about what feels right to them. Commit and move on.
