About the Image(s)

Reflections in the window facing me of some wooden birds in front of a window behind me. Photographed the other week during lockdown, extraneous material was cropped out (bits of uninteresting blank wall etc) and some brightness/contrast adjustment. The little bit of colour bottom right is from a glass vase beside the birds. The reflections have been created by reflections in the double glazing. Hope all the group members are well and safe.

Before reading your story, I wondered if you were shooting a shower curtain. Thanks for the explanation and creative thinking. I like the simplistic imagery of the birds. Well done.   Posted: 05/10/2020 12:50:57

Like the abstraction. I might crop out the part at the very top.   Posted: 05/11/2020 18:02:15

Interesting composition. Prompts the viewer into creating a plausible story.   Posted: 05/26/2020 15:10:00
