Finding the Picture with Brooks Jensen

FTP-015
Finding the mystery

This fantasic glass sculpture/construction was hanging in a back room at Star Works in Seagrove, North Carolina. A skylight above was the only illumination. The curious shape and the ring below seemed very mystical to my mind's eye. The clutter in the background did (ahem) not. I shifted my angle a bit to the right, moved in to a tighter composition, and then applied some pretty heavy post-processing.

The image below is the floating, heart-shaped, obelisk-like mystery that I had originally seen in my mind's eye. Sometimes it takes a lot of work to get there.

Tech data:

Panasonic G85 using a Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 lens at 30mm. ISO 2500. f/9 at 1/60th sec.
