Not an illusion

Now, a fabulous offering from Aftab Uzzaman (aftab.).

Not an illusion

The compositional magic of this image is not solely in the positioning of the elements. The greatest magic is the choice of subject and setting, and the illusion created within that space.

From a basic layout perspective, the whole is well arranged on a diagonal, the handle and shadow creating the sense of direction. The pattern of the tabletop provides depth, and the stark contrast of silver tones is pure magic.

But, of course, it is the interplay of the reflection into the image that really makes the picture: the reality of illusion. There are no words to describe the genius of this shot.

I want this hanging on my wall.
