"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

NaDu from Köln, Germany

You are now queued under the great impressionistic painters :)). - Set jokes aside, I sat like a walrus in front of this and couldn't image where to begin and end. But it's really beauty by fine mirror-caused blurrings and the time to regard it is by far not wasted.

NANNE from DAMWOUDE, Netherlands

Shadows in the water, it looks like a mirror.
Super-shot, MARIANA!

Have a nice sunday.

MK from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Attractive abstract. What was it actually? trees?

18 Apr 2010 12:03pm

@MK: Trees, a few people walking along the lake , a lamp, and all that rotated for 180 :) Very simple but lovely composition ! Thanks MK !

Bettina from United States

Wonderful play with the illusion here. Looks like it's been reversed. Your title cracks me up. You better look around yourself, because what you see may just be a reflection of reality, and when you cannot see, you do not see that which is behind you. :)

18 Apr 2010 2:02pm

@Bettina: You are right - it is rotated for 180 , and these people walking along the lake are right there in these reflections :)

Photome from Uden, Netherlands

Amazing beautiful abstract.
