Water Droplets in the Corn by Brian Swinyard, PPSA

February 2021 - Water Droplets in the Corn

About the Image(s)

This is a straight in-camera shot without any post-event manipulation in Photoshop. In fact, it was taken with my rather old mobile phone. The water droplets were in the bottom of the metal sink in our kitchen. I suppose the droplets, the scratches on the sink and the lighting have combined to form something creative in the mind's eye of the viewer.

I like the tones in the golds and browns and how the scratches reflect the light. In my opinion, most of the interest is in the bottom half of the image. I'm wondering about a horizontal crop. It would have more of a pano feel.

Janice, It never ceases to amaze me how something as simple as scratches and water droplets on a sink can evoke a myriad of visual stories. I attach a cropped image as you suggested and I leave it to you to decide which is the better version.   Posted: 02/18/2021 10:52:43

I like your title and the imagination behind it. Lovely light and shadow the scratches!   Posted: 02/07/2021 23:15:35

Phillipa, I find it quite therapeutic to see beyond the reality of an image to conjure up a visual story in the mind's eye of the viewer. Very much a case of it being greater than the sum of the constituent parts.   Posted: 02/18/2021 10:56:51
