My Spotlighted Images

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Perfect timing on this image! A personal favorite of mine, the image of reflection of clouds in glass structures. I love your thought expressed by this image, the dark mirroring of the other self, the darkness inside. The processing is perfect and crisp.

How interesting Pavan... I'm moving back and forth this one and the other one ("the High Flier") and am surprised to find quite a different feel... maybe less subtle yet just as evocative and story-telling! Powerful composition and b&w works perfect for this one! Love both of them!:-)

Good evening, Pavan
It is an interesting and very threatening looking image. Still, I see the beauty in this presentation. The clouds reflection and the reflection of the bird in the windows, make it seem friendly. The words below the display are very wise. I hope the good wins. I wish you all the best and thank you for your nice comment.
Sincerely Christel
