Photo Observation

  1.  Found on, photo manipulation by Sarolta Ban;
  2.  Theme: Surreal
  3.  I found this picture to be fitting for the theme because, much like the definition of the word ‘surreal’, it is a very unnatural photograph.  More importantly though, the lighting used to create the image really sold the surreal aspect of the picture; had the tree been front-lit, I think it would have produced a more serene and happy image.  However, because of the way the lighting casts shadows and darkness onto the water, and the way the tree and the boat are highlighted through the backlight, it gives a truly unique feeling that the image and situation is absurd; it gives the feeling that something is definitely off, but in a captivating and almost mesmerizing way.
