'Hard and Beautiful'
This is a macro photograph of a crystal formed by a chemical element. The world of macro photography is so beautiful and I am grateful for inspiration that it bestows upon me. Imagine if it was human-sized, and we were surrounded by similar formations. One usually cannot find such imagery unless created with computer graphics. This is a real photograph, no manipulations were made.
The first thing we notice is a variety of colours. The abundance of hues adds a notion of richness and easily catches attention. The dominant yellow is strongly challenged by purple, green and blue from the opposite side of the colour wheel. However, the colours are not very strong. It makes them fit with each other easier.
The overall softness is achieved by the shallow depth of field. Only a portion of the frame is fully sharp, while the rest is gradually falling out of focus, as one can easily see. Notice many separate rhythmic structures all over this composition. The object appears quite fragile. Most beautiful things usually are. However, this crystal is quite hard in real life.
Hard and beautiful, that's a combination, eh? :D
