BRISTOL 117 – RIVER REFLECTION, THE WATERFRONT
February 9, 2017 8 Comments
Technique: contrast and colour saturation have been raised a little, because my aim here is not to represent the scene exactly as I saw it, but to produce an image that (hopefully!) is visually attractive. Compositionally, the left side of the image has a bold design, with the warm brown at the top passing down into raggedly margined white, and then moving on further down to that prominent, vertical white and pale blue stripe. It is almost as if that vertical white and pale blue stripe is a pillar with the areas of white and warm brown on top of it, almost as if the stripe is holding these two areas of colour aloft. Moving right, the foreground patterning is more subtle, but there are focal points higher up – the bright golden reflection of a light, and the white structure with a dark central stripe at upper right, which is the most figurative (i.e. least abstract) element in the picture.
There is another river reflection image, taken nearby, here.
