Eternity Post #312

Hope you enjoy the above picture. It was taken in the Brooklyn Bridge Park, though the place is not really important. What grabbed my attention is the interplay between light and shadow. This is the main subject here. The silhouette of the random scatter of the pilings provide contrast to the glittering surface of the water. The black and white conversion enhances the mood. The scene suggests a timeless feeling, an infinity signified by the title of “Eternity”. 

f/8, 1/800 sec, ISO 100

Any critique or comment would be appreciated.

This is a drawing after Charles Bargue‘ s Drawing Course Plate I. 44. using the sight-size method practised in French ateliers in the XIX. century. Today this technique has a renaissance in the United States of America.  It took me approximately four 3 hour sessions and additional minor corrections to complete the drawing using Nitram HB charcoal on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper.
