Tucked away from the bustle of highways and glare of city lights that polluted the view on even the darkest, clearest of nights, the cool breeze tore a bronze leaf from it’s hold. It twirled and danced as it fell, carried far from its branch. Eventually gravity won and as it landed in a shallow stream, its journey continued, swept along in the flow. It slipped through a crack in a decrepit log that stretched the length of the shallow river. Wedged between the rocks, the annual rise and fall of the water level did the log no favours. It’s waterlogged bark flaked off in chunks, moss carpeting its surface with a colony of emerald beetles calling it home. In stark contrast, its hollow was amazingly neat. Or, it was until the leaf caught on the wood with a faint, wet slap. At the far end of the hollow, nestled in a bed of feathers, dried bryophytes, and fabric scraps a dark ball of velvety fur uncurled. It’s nictitating membrane withdrew, revealing deep ruby eyes that look around blearily
light and color stuff
i just wanted to quickly put together some basic things about how i think of light and color that i think are important to be mindful of in order to make meaningful decisions about these things in your pictures. it's not going to be very fancy, but i hope its useful to somebody. im not good at writing stuff so please bear with me.
to see anything we need light. light is emitted from a emission source. after that, as i see it there are basically 3 ways light reaches your eyes
1. it is reflected off of things (such as objects)
2. it is transmitted through things (such as air)
3. it is scattered by things (such as air)
Out of Darkness into the Light CONTEST - CLOSED
As the days are getting shorter we do our best to lighten our mood with lamps and candles, trying to keep the darkness at bay. This darkness can be literal or more of a metaphor (for anxiety and depression), same with the light. For this contest, I want you to choose at least one of my stock images and create a photomanipulation with darkness and light. You do not have to limit yourself to images depicting night scenes with candles or lamps (though those will surely give you a great opportunity for high contrast images), you can also think about other light sources in other (dark) settings. For example moonlight, magic / fairy light, an eclipse, a dark cave, sunlight shining through trees, a sunset,... The only thing I would not recommend is a full on daylight scene since there are less opportunities for showing darkness when the whole setting already is so bright. Also do not limit yourself to just actual light and dark - you can also use the concept to convey a mood, an idea or a

Stock Use Feature - 2020
Here's a small selection of the beautiful works created with my stock in the past year :heart:
The last breath of this world leaves my lungs,
The life leaches from my limbs.
Making way for darkness-
In my empty body…
But my soul is still bright.
I am still here,
The shell I once inhabited,
Has been left behind.
Abandoned in the world I knew,
I now move forward.
I do not know this place…
It is dark.
Though it welcomes me with open arms,
Embracing my fragile existence.
Where I am now…
It is dark,
I am cloaked, safe,
Hiding in space,
Where there is no more danger,
I feel it as it begins:
Forming over me.
I can feel every cell,
Every part of me
