Why it works

NPhoto - - Into Africa -

There’s no deny­ing that Frans has cre­ated a stun­ning shot here, and the con­trast cre­ated by the sharp­ness and blur is what im­me­di­ately hits you when you first see this in­cred­i­ble im­age – how­ever, it’s an­other con­trast, which is cre­ated by the clash of warm light and sliver of cool blue wa­ter, that gives this shot an ad­di­tional edge. Frans shares a sim­i­lar view: “One of the things that makes the im­age spe­cial is that you’re get­ting a lit­tle bit of pink from the sun­set and you’re also get­ting a lit­tle bit of blue that is a re­sult of the shift­ing colour tem­per­a­ture, which hap­pens early in the morn­ing and late in the day. In a way, it’s a par­al­lel to the im­age of the African ele­phants at twi­light.”
