I like this a lot. The texture and movement of the water remind me a Winslow Homer painting.

Thank you xtpete and nick.photo.

@xtpete: it's all about vision, about seeing things. The technique is easy to learn...

@nick.photo: I'll have a close look at Winslow Homer's work. Thank you for the reference.

cheers,
Roland

It looks like a painting and I like the way you framed it.

Man, I really never get tired of looking at your work. It's cool as hell (there have been a few that you posted that I didn't think were so good, but I could say that about ANYONE).

Do you know what I really love about much of your work? That you keep things really really simple. Case in point here. It's water against some manmade barriers (I don't know what you call those things). I can imagine a $h**load of people walking past that setting every day (or at least a similar setting) with few ever even noticing the potential photographic opportunities. This right here is truly some "everyday $h**". Nature interacting with civilization.

But OMG. You framed it so that the space is utilized well, you paid attention to the color, you shot it in such a way that the curving organic nature of the water is being cut by the angular nature of the manmade dividers.

This is SO freaking effective, but what delights me is how simple all of this really is. You seem to really pay attention to what you're doing, you seem to pay really good attention to the basics, and it really does result in some very good images. I'm not advocating for people to copy your style or anything, but your work is actually inspiring. It's inspiring in the sense that it's amazing the kinds of great results one can get by keeping things simple, following the basics, and paying attention to things.

Gene, lots of stuff going on here on my side, so: sorry for being so late. The simplicity often is the key to a more liberated way of seeing. The fewer easy identifiable things our brain has to label and put into associative chains, the more fun the pure seeing can get. It is about identifying the very aspect that really captures my eye in the first place. Here, it wasn't the bridge, it wasn't the location, the historic context or something the like. Here, it was just the play of the waves, the tonality the contrasting yet harmonic color palette introduces and the simple contrast between ever changing nature and seemingly static man made structures. So, trying to get those aspects into one frame is the "craft" part of photography.

I very much appreciate you taking time to look closer at those shots and I love to read your thoughts.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Roland
