:Another great one! We have everything here. Firstly because it totally obeys the theme "Shades and Lights" - and there were many exceptional photographs that were not selected because they did not fit the theme.
Then besides excellent: framing / composition / aesthetics / light and shadow play - we also have an enigmatic environment that compels us to ask questions.
What would be happening here in reality?
Because reality is a lie of our senses, in consequence, photography is a lie about a lie. Photographers like to deceive the lie of reality with the lie of photography - in an attempt to build the perfect world that each one idealizes. Built with our inner truth that is based on memory. So, are we seeing photos the way we like to remember things? And not necessarily the way they happened?
