Exploring Those Adventures

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/500 second F/10.0 ISO 400 75 mm


"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."
~ Andre Kertesz

Loukas from Athens and Thessaloniki, Greece

Beautiful contrast of colors highlighting the main subject (but very centered)

10 Aug 2012 5:48am

@365: just how my brain liked it .... for me this 'centered' or 'not-centered' rule does not exist :)

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

This child almost seems enveloped by the water spray. I adore the rim light that outlines his/her face. Gorgeous vivid color. What a gem of a shot, Mariana.

Cajera from France

L'eau attire souvent les enfants qui adorent y plonger leurs pieds et leurs mains. L'éclairage est superbe. Il donne l'impression qu'une lumière venue du fond éclaire la petite fille qui découvre peut être un monde magique invisible aux adultes

l'Angevine from France

j'apprécie les teintes vives sur la tenue de cet enfant et la couleur de sa peau qui se marie bien avec la teinte de l'eau qu'il a l'air d'attraper pour en faire son tourbillon comme sa source,ou être heureux comme un poisson dans l'eau qui se gigote....
