  1. I want to download this, blow it up, print it out, and have a poster of it in front of me with to meditate. I would add background music of a water droplets and for me, instant calm. Staring into that stick at the bottom and the small “eddies” around it. Repeat after me: zone, zone, zone. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

  2. There’s an Oriental side of the artist in you that comes out when you share these meditational visions. Love it when this happens!

  4. I love the way you’ve captured the surface tension perfectly, which might look a lot easier to do than it really is. Excellent picture!

  5. There’s a real wonderful tenderness, and respect for your subject in this shot that says a lot about your approach to the world I think.

    Fascinating to look at. All the elements have a sinking in feeling.

    • Thank you so much for your comment. Yes, there is a sinking-in feeling to this image. I love how you put that!

  7. This is so beautiful Melanie.. I love the colours and water tension but I am distracted by the leaf? reflection at the top left and I confess I would have PS it out or cropped above the 1st leaf to make it square..

    • Interesting suggestion, Helen. For me the leaf contributes to the image, but I can see how it could also be distracting. I’m interested to try cropping it out to see how it changes the image. I don’t have PS, but I can definitely do the crop. Thanks for the idea! I’m always grateful for feedback like that.
