"The Sound of Silence"

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence...

Thanks for all your comments guys... :)

Jeremy, I thought about this song after I got the picture right in from of me (at my computer last night)... don't know exactly why... I just love it...

Take care!

Gorgeous. Question: did you think of the song while composing the photo, after viewing the photo, or was the song the inspiration for the photo?
René Gysi06-Apr-2005 18:04
Beautiful photo. Very well done.
Antonis Sarantos06-Apr-2005 17:31

Simon & Garfunkel fan eh?
Nice shot, love the composition and lighting.
Magnificent use of dof.
Well done indeed and now I'm humming that tune :-)

That would make nice wallpaper...

Striking image!

The desaturated colors are very nice here. And the shallow depth of field makes it seem like it recedes miles into the distance. It's a very attractive image.

Nice curve of lights.. i especially like the reflection
Karen Stuebing06-Apr-2005 09:37
Beautiful image to go with the dark lyrics. Btw, I love that song.
Lee Rudd06-Apr-2005 08:35
very nice design

great composition.
Guest 06-Apr-2005 05:15
Candle shots can be soooo overdone and boring, but your creative composition, (positions and choice of DOF) make this very eye-catching. It's one thing to take a properly and evenly exposed picture of a candle (I've never done that) but to do it like it's the first time, it's amazing! Awesome picture, coupled with fantastic lyrics!! Thanks!

Very beautiful poem and I like the reflection of the candlelight on this shiny surface. I like the composition of those candles and how you captured them. Both versions work very well.

Nice....I like the DOF..
