"The depiction in photography of emotion or character by details intended to achieve a vividness or effectiveness more by invoking subjective and sensory impressions than by recreating an objective reality.
The key to seeing the world's soul, and in the process wakening one's own, is to get over the confusion by which we think that fact is real and imagination an illusion. It is the other way around.
The great tradition of still photography is documentation, the representation of objective reality. The photographer observes a scene, situation, or object and responds to it by endeavouring to show it as it appears. The average person on vacation, the parent who is photographing his or her family, and probably a large majority of serious amateurs and professionals operate mainly within this tradition. However, there is a second tradition, that of altering physical reality for the purpose of expressing the photographer's personal response to specific subject matter or to a concept or idea."

Wow ! An exhibition in the open air in full nature.
And the exhibited art is also beautifully reflected in the water.
Best regards, Paul

Επιστροφή στην φύση είναι το μήνυμα τής φωτογραφίας σου αλλά εμένα μου θυμίζει τα παιδικά μου χρόνια πού μεγάλωσα στην εξοχή και άπλωνα τήν μπουγάδα με τήν μητέρα μου στα πεύκα!
Καλό βράδυ Γεώργιε,

This is an original composition from nature with laundry hanging in an unexpected place. The colours of the clothes and linen look very bright against the rusty red background and are very nicely reflected in the water. A very beautiful composition.

This country is a photo I like to see. Composition inspires serenity and beauty. A clever composition with winter and reflection. A very good quality. Bravo.
Have a nice evening

Γιώργο γεια σου,
όμορφο το σκηνικό με τ' απλωμένα ρούχα να αντανακλούν στην λιμνούλα παρακάτω όπως φυσικά και τα δένδρα. Ήσυχη και ελκυστική η τοποθεσία ιδικά για τον κάτοικο της μεγαλόπολης.

Beautiful colours in ths picture. A soft blue background from the far away hills, some autumnal gold from the trees and a lush green from the grass. These colours are accented in the laundry hanging from a line, and everything is repeated in the reflection! The trees also provide a fine pattern.

It's an ordinary everyday subject makes good! Excellent observation and a well executed job there, it's about a small catchy area in stunning colours to trigger our senses that have influenced our eyes to hold the focus in. They standout strikingly in the woods and the reflections too create the sensation on the the overcast day. Well done, Congrats.
