Re: OK, what do you think of -this- photo?

The Stieglitz photo was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw yours. I really like your photo and I'd hang it on my wall as well.

The Stieglitz photo is quite famous, as it started Stieglitz thinking about photography and the direction the Pictorialism movement was headed. You can learn more about the image in the PBS documentary about Stieglitz, Alfred Stieglitz: The Eloquent Eye. You can find it on YouTube and Netflix.

I'm not really sure the Steichen photo that was referred to. His famous photo of the era, The Pond-Moonlight, is similar, and was the highest priced photo sold at auction ($2.92 million USD) for many years, until Gursky's Rhein ll displaced it.

Your image is in good company :-D, and I really enjoyed your sharing it.
