I received a daily deviation for this:
Balance by MaciejKarcz

Thank you to drop-asd for suggesting it and to opioid for featuring it :hug:
And thank you to everyone for all the nice feedback and faves :)
I really like this piece. I had been planning a piece like that for a while, it had been inspired by various readings on Zen Buddhism. I wanted it to have some similarity to a piece of calligraphy and be as simple as possible, using just two elements, form and emptiness. In that photo, form and emptiness are interchangeable :)

I used a telephoto lens to isolate the branches in the water and a long exposure to make the water uniform (and purposely over exposed to wash it out) as well as to enhance the reflection of branches.




The most amazing video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdb… Watch in HD :)
