Evolution by catch---22 Evolution by catch---22
Better call the ships, they been caught sailing
Better call the captain, he's been caught stealing
Better call the porter man, he's been caught leaving
Better call all the guys on the deck, they've been caught with no feeling

Better call the fisherman, 'cause they're coming on land
Better call the head nurse, wrap us up, to throw us in the dirt
Better call with some resistance, better way to feel no shame
Better call with some persistence, that way you feel nothing at all

Better call on evolution
Better way to make a revolution...

On a foggy day at a man-made lake you were inspired by the sights and created a number of bleak and barren images. All well done.

In this particular image the incongruity of the trees in the lake grabs your attention right away. I like the use of the vignetting effect to draw attention to the center of the frame and I see another element in the composition that leads the eye to the center as well. Between the random trees on both sides there appears to be a clear path through the water with a clear dead-treeline extending out. Together they work well at drawing the eye in.
With the trees vanishing off in the fog and the diminishing size of the trees you managed to give depth to the image.

Your conversion to B&W enhances the bleak look that I assume you were trying for.
What do you think?

I love the way this picture fades off into the fog. I keep waiting for something to try and claw its way out of the water :)

This looks very eerie. I love it. A photo I recently took of the blackbirds had a bit of an eerie quality to it. They can make for some GREAT photos and this is definitely one of them.

this is in south east oklahoma... you might try to find some young (5-20 year old) man made lakes in your area. some government agency that handles flood control might have some maps or info.

thank you for all your kind words Mianna :)

I liked the colored versions very much, but this B&W is very strong too. Great composition of diagonals & reflections.

Beautiful song :heart:

it's in a rural area in the southeast part of Oklahoma. if you enter 34.757492,-97.05537 into google maps satellite. the green arrow is exactly where the image was taken.

There seems to be a path leading back through the center of the shot. Wonder where it goes. Awesome image, Dennis.

well seen, Bob. there is. It's the path the old dirt county line road took before the lake came in... it leads to a small community surrounded by peach orchards.
