Thanks for the votes and comments on my last upload - and a belated thank you to Eric (ErictheViking) for his UA on the upload previous to last!

Today - back to the wonderful mirrors of Spinalonga Island in Crete - and a self portrait. The title should make the narrative easier to interpret. Perhaps 'exploring' would be a better word? I'm not so sure, as I think to explore perhaps renders the photographer as separate to the image, whilst interpret shows the photographer as an integral part. Still - at the end of the day - its all just philosophical clap trap.

Processing wise - the image was flipped in PS and then converted to mono in SilverEffex.

Have a great day...

Adam

An infinity of Adams, in pairs photographing each other. This is just fabulous.
I love the precision in the fingers, bending is a particularly fiddly operation. Not so sure about the shorts though...

PS - I wonder why you flipped this? Reading right to left would be less 'conventional' and more mysterious, to my way of thinking anyway.

not so sure Moira in this case. here the eye goes from left to right, with the figure disappearing in the LB blur. if you flip it, I think the reading would be again from left to right ending up with the figure in fg. more conventional, don't you think?

Adam, great work. with all those reflections it must have been hard to choose which yourself put in the sweet spot Smile

Interesting point. I automatically read from the foreground backwards/outwards, maybe that's conventional too?

Umm. Curious. I flipped the image - simply as it didn't quite feel right - it was my first action. Now in mono - I am less sure about the decision.

Thanks for the thought provoking comments
