Peder Winge (known as pewidane here on DPNow) is a retired engine driver from Denmark, and is one of our hardest working and most prolific photographers. Peder has submitted several images to the Golden Gallery to date and has not let rejection put him off.
At last, we can reward his effort. The depth of this image comes in several stages. First of all it has very attractive, autumnal, saturated colours. Secondly, the composition of the two leaves floating on the water combines well with the sun lit area on the left and the shaded area on the right.
Finally, there is an element of good versus evil with the oil slick threatening to permeate the scene. One is drawn to thinking that the oil is the advance force with the darkness of the shaded area threatening to follow. This image could be very useful in an anti-pollution advertisement.
Another interesting touch, maybe by design, maybe not, is the watercolour paint effect of the image. Normally this is a sign an image has been heavily and excessively processed, but in this instance it complements the picture well.
