Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong


Early Morning: Tree, Rising

Or Right?

Early Morning: Sun, Rising

Remember when you were a kid and you would play on the swing?   Sometimes, everything looked different — yet better — when you were hanging upside down.   Sometimes, a slight change in perception can make all the difference.   It may be “wrong”, but I like this photo of the sunrise over a pond upside down.

Did you notice the white streak in the sky?  It’s a contrail.  That was the most difficult thing to shoot since in the original image it is reflected in the water.

And, because why not play some more?  Here is a detail from the same image that I like, with a little post-process editing  of the color and saturation:

Detail: Who is to say Right or Wrong?

This is my contribution to this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.  This week’s challenge:  share a photo that means wrong.  You can find links to other contributors’ works in the comments here.  Why don’t you play along too?

  1. Anne, I was fascinated and delighted to see your post! What a coincidence that we both have upside down reflective images in the past month. Your photo of the pond ‘downside up and upside up’ are both exquisite!

  6. Thank goodness for the duck to give reference to the right way up! Creative processing.

    • That’s funny that you would see it that way, because I had too look several times to see whether I could tell that duck was upside down! Thanks for stopping by & commenting.

    Naturally I like the “wrong” image best. I’m fascinated with what happens when images of reflections are flipped upside down. They take on a surreal and fantastic quality.

    • I really like reflections, whether it’s a window, a mirror, or water. And I especially like them when you can’t figure out which side is UP. I took some photos last year of reflections in a glass mirrored building of the building that I was in, particularly the car park on the ground level. The results looked like cars were in the air, and people were walking under the buildings. I should find them and post sometime.
