Photography course: Week 24 - Elements

The assignment for this week was to capture one (or more) of the original four elements as espoused by the Greeks.  Water, Earth, Air and Fire. 

Water seemed the easiest as I am at the cottage, but how to portray it in different fashion?  I finally decided that my best photo was that of a scene, taken during the Golden Hour and slightly edited in both Lightroom and Photoshop.    The clouds blowing across the sky represent the Air, the granite boulders, so profuse in our area, the Earth, and the Water of course, speaks for itself. 

This is the one selected for the course:  A scene taken from our dock looking north on Lake Memphremagog. 

A black and white shot of a very turbulent lake.

The reflection of a large granite boulder beside a shallow section near the shore.

Practicing close-ups with a friend's 100 lens.  Water drops on a clematis.

I'd love to know which is your favourite.  Thanks for looking.

I think each one has its merits, Dianne, and it is hard for me to pick a favourite. I especially like the first three, equally. I can't imagine that any of these would be better expressed in cloth, can you? Do you think your sense of composition has been heightened by this class?
