I'm glad you do! From the looks of it, it has been a little over a year since I've received a comment on this photo and a little over two years since I've taken it. Thank you for reminding me that I took this!
I thought this was a cliff at first and I was like, "Whoa, how did he get a mirror in a cliff." I should learn to finish reading before I make assumptions.
And I love the green shutter and frame. It really pops out from the brown, but also looks like a great match with it.
The photograph on its own is incredible enough but your explanation makes it even more special It's wonderful to see to what lengths the drive of art makes people go and moreover - what beautiful pieces it creates.
wonderful image - totally understand the obsession with the window of perception. My own obsession started three years ago (and of course a window fixation!). Moved past windows now but my work still all about perception and the difference between it and reality. Now I am exploring the sublime moment as a point where we expand our perceptions.
There is a really wonderful connection between your work and Magritte, especially his more subtle beautiful images. I just love his reasons too, he was not like any other surrealist artist.
p.s minor critique - not negative but the window looks very slightly crooked, I think it may just be an optical illusion because the sand line just beneath it is not quite straight. You might want to try rotating the image just a fraction to see if that fixes it. Sometimes you have to make a choice between optical straightness and real straightness. In this case I would consider optical. Sorry I am a bit of a nit picker!
there is nothing wrong about noticing flaws with picture, in fact I appreciate it. I notice it too actually and I played around with it many times before I submitted it. I pretty much said, "oh well!" and so here it is. You're right about the sand it makes the picture look crooked even though I tried straightening it :/. Perhaps I'm not doing it right, nonetheless thank you for the comment, I appreciate it
I don't think there is a definate right or wrong in this case. It is just what works best which can only be determined by playing around until you get the best result, which you obviously have done. Optical straightness is a pain like that. It is only the slightest bit crooked looking which was only noticible on full view anyway. . I only mentioned it in case you hadn't considered it. Thanks for not takingmy comment the wrong way. I really like critical comments as I miss that feedback from Uni.
