Pollution Of Water Supplies by dancingelf Pollution Of Water Supplies by dancingelf
People keep polluting everything, not understanding that this will mean our doom.

Pollution of water supplies will be one of the main reasons people will be dying in a few decades, as no matter how much water there'll be, it won't be clean to drink.

Hope to be part of my new project on advertising photography.

Great concept! The contrast is amazing, the background is calm and when your eye moves to the glass....BOOM! There is that blot.

Thank you so much! It was really tough doing this shot. Now that I look back at it I'm not completely satisfied and I think I can do better. The concept is always one I'm fond of though - pollution, humans and environment etc. Don't get me started or I'll keep going for hours and hours!! :P :blahblah:

I like and also support the idea much. your sensitivity is noteworthy. the photograph is clear and the background seems very nice. Maybe we shouldn't see the white wall behind and I wonder how it should be if you used a different glass. maybe you can use a more minimalistic glass or an aquarium with dramatic lighting not daylight. Congratulations for your work. ;)

Thanks very much! The white on the back is a white paper, which I placed to create a curve with the wall and the floor (so that no line can be seen in the photo). Bad thing was, the stones and shells kept slipping down.. I should have glued them there now that I think of it..!
Thanks for the ideas! I'm thinking of it very much, abandoning those photos and creating some new, better ones. Like you said, with better, more atmospheric lighting (something that describes better my own point of view too anyway!) and experiment with the background more.
Thank you once again! :hug:

I have no idea!
I cannot understand any part of our lives. We just don't make sense! I mean, if we destroy earth, then we'll die too. Isn't what we do a kind of suicide? We should all go for group therapy!!!! =p

Jajajajaja!! You are right... But the problem is that group therapy is futile for us... We have not a therapist... The only thing we can do is identify the people who is destroying the world and stop them... But the people is very busy... Nobody will fight for the future and their own life... They have to work... The have no time for this... We are a suicide club... I guess... Jajaja ^_^

That's ink in that cup, isn't it?
I've tried taking photos of ink in a cup of water but it never worked out.
I'm glad it worked out for you.

Of your enviornmental type shots, this is the best. The black ink in the water is a great representation of general water pollution, but more specifically oil spills...and we could be drinking all those contaminants from our taps. Ugh, gross. Perfectly executed concept :clap:

The only thing I find bothersome is that you can see where the shells and pebbles end in the back, but otherwise, this is excellent!

:icondancingelf:
dancingelf Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2007  Professional Photographer
Yeah, the end of them can be seen, I know. I tried hard to put one shell and stone over another to make a kind of a pile, but the paper was slippery the way it was placed and they kept slipping down to the bottom over and over again, so at some point I left them as tey were! -.- My nerves were really in not a very good condition while taking this shot!!! :P
Thank you very much for your great comment! And yes, I cannot not stop and think of this whenever I go for a swim in the sea and I accidentaly gulp water. It's sooooo gross!! :S
Thanks once again! ^_^
