My ego tripped this morning

For what it is worth: one of my images became the banner of theΒ Facebook page Cape Reflections. The administrator of this group wrote a review and that made my day ( πŸ˜‰ ).

“The banner photograph at the top of the Cape Refections Group Page was the most liked image posted to the page in May as voted for by our members. Congratulations Herman van Bon! Herman is one of our regular contributors. He posts a range of his photographs to our page and it is always exiting to see which way he will point his lens next. Not only are his subjects carefully chosen illustrating a deep interest in nature and people and the world around him but he will often exercise his creative energies further by manipulating the image using a variety of tools available to the digital photographer, some times to very dramatic effect.”

The picture was one of a series of which I published a few in this blog some days ago. Herman van Bon Photography

Silhouette 10 (the End)

Not all will agree that this is a silhouette and that’s fine with me. I’m a purist by nature but I am also a notorious breaker of all kinds of rules and prefer to go for the unknown. Sometimes my behavior leads to a dent in my ego and that’s also fine. I only live once and life is there to be lived.

For this serie of 10 ‘Imaginary Silhouttes’ I made use of 2 beach girls (they won’t recognize themselves πŸ™‚ ) for the first 9 and Yvonne modeled for the last one. I’m not fully satisfied about all but think that there are at least 2 or 3 that are acceptable.

Let me know what you think and I’m not afraid for another dent …
