Self-Reflection: Did I/See you/See me?

Posted by
Jeremy (Ridgedale, United States) on 20 June 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Considering the flurry of self-portraits, I thought I would contribute something from a few years ago.

The xx - Reunion seems to go well with it:

OLYMPUS u10D,S300D,u300D 1/50 second F/3.6 ISO 80 8 mm

I'm an amateur photographer who's a writer by trade. So I enjoy photography that suggests a narrative. I welcome all constructive criticism as I'm looking to improve. Thanks for viewing my photos!

Wonderfully clever and very well exposed. Reflecting into an eye of nature, with a superb blue.
The XX, I'll be back to listen to them.

I love your play with words. I enjoy listening to the xx and enjoy the link you put up too, listen to crystalised if you haven't already :) I actually think this is a great portrait- the way the water seems to outline the rock in the 'eye' form, the tree branches and your reflection are excellent and it's pretty well seen too! I really like the way the darkness of the water plays around with the edge of the rock, it's pretty much like an eye. Great!

@Abena: Thanks, Abena! Yeah, I'm pretty lovestruck with the xx, so I'm familiar with crystalised. I appreciate the detailed response!!

Sharon Pleasants from Monroe, Louisiana, United States

Very artistic, Jeremy! Excellent use of the reflective water. The shape was a great find!

@Sharon Pleasants: Yep, sometimes you just stumble onto things. I think this was at Lost Valley actually.

Regina G. Santaella from Cancún, Mexico

I'm really impressed by this portrait Jeremy, it's very creative and I love everything about it. I'm extremely attracted to the variety of shapes and colours, subtle but playing quite an important role in the whole scene. In a way, the water almost loses its identity, creating a completely different image on its surface.

21 Jun 2013 3:14am

@Regina G. Santaella: Yeah, I like how you say the water loses its identity. I think that's the intriguing thing about reflections; whatever's doing the reflection takes on the image of something else. Maybe a bit of sleight of hand.

Ludovic Roudet from Charenton-le-Pont, France

Great composition, perfectly framed. The reflections on this "textured" water are splendid.

@Ludovic Roudet: Much appreciated!!
