With this image you tell an entire story of a nation, a region blessed with complexity and uncommon beauty in despair and perhaps, confusion. Impact value is intense to say the least. The very overall color, in its muted softness, suggests reflection in deep meditation. The sad song this lovely siren sings is bittersweet wrapped in a sensual melancholy humid and still as the river surface. One wonders if your creative eye could capture and convey a similar song sung by sirens of the native american culture. Your technique with presenting each surface, be it skin, weathered wood, water, and muted brilliance of the sarong is signature of your art.
wow, thats a really strong one! i love how everything in the photo contributes to the athmosphere – the deep greens, the weathered surface of the wooden structure, the half-submerged boats, the jungle reflected in the water, and how the girl and the print on her clothes is providing a warm countertone.
