This is wonderful photo. It doesn’t need any explanation or dissection to improve upon it.
Susan says, “Two things stand out in this photograph for me. The first is the magical colors in the background; a wonderful natural gradient from pink to purple courtesy of Mother Nature. Wow! The second is the contrast between the natural curved, organic lines of the tree branches in the foreground with the intricate geometrical lines of the bridge in the background. Lucia must have cheered out loud when she came across this sight. I think that this photo gives a great opportunity to talk about seeing itself, and staying open to the beauty of the world around us. This photo is certainly advocates for the value of keeping your head out of your smart phone and looking up to see what the real world has to offer.”
Lucia says, “Yes, Susan is right. I was delighted when I saw this scene. She described my first impressions perfectly. I loved the contrast between the prominent dark tree framing the foreground and the faint triangular lines of the bridge almost lost in the fog. The rowers were a bonus. They were moving quickly and I almost missed them. Luckily, I captured them at the perfect moment as they were almost out of the scene and their wake added a subtle sense of movement.”
