Daily Deviation

Given 2008-07-27
" The special thing about this photo, I think is the fact that there's no chess board. Just all the little guys, in an accurate line on a mirror. Perfect symmetry. One other great idea was the use of differen light sources with different brightness. You just notice this after a second view, realizing the two different shadows. "

i mean... its good...
and believe me i'm not trying to hate on you

something in me is convinced this shouldnt be a DD

its good
but its good by snapshot standards

i dunno
maybe i'm a nazi

PS
i'm not trying to shoot you down
i actually like your gallery

LOL not a problem... i don't know if this is worth the DD... i didn't suggest my self... but i think a snapshot isn't planned- this one was...

but it's no perfect symmetrie if you look at this, the horses are not mirrored, i think this is what most people don't like on it... but i wanted to irritate with this...

thx :D that's what photography is about...

german: aus altgr. φῶς, phos, „Licht (der Himmelskörper)“, „Helligkeit“ und γράφειν, graphein, „zeichnen“, „ritzen“, „malen“, „schreiben“

englisch:
The word "photography" comes from the French photographie which is based on the Greek φώς (phos) "light" + γραφίς (graphis) "stylus", "paintbrush" or γραφή (graphê;) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light.
