Default Give us your favourites: In dawn's first light

This is one of my favourites from 2010 - frosted grass seed heads along the creek, taken at dawn in mid-May.

Just beautiful. The simplicity of this image really pulls me in. I can feel the morning calm just by looking at it.

Very nice. A Japanese clasic feeling.

I agree with Ordo it seems to have a classic Japanese/Chinese feeling to it. The almost black and white treatment adds to this feeling.

Thank you bobbert, vsch 1, Ordo & selvin for your appreciation. There was no black & white treatment. The off-camera photo is grey to blackish - then when I downsized the tones intensified. I liked it that way so that's how I left it. In fact I have been disappointed because when I print it the residual green in the stems shows through and takes away the 'mysticism' the digital image shows. The first light was silver with the iced pieces sparkling and that's what drew me to the scene and what I wanted to show.

But it's still one of my favourites from 2010 and it gladdens me that you also like it.

Cheers

Bernice
