Lost in the Details. This challenge is about getting lost in the details. Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene. Here, I use a landscape as an example, but this approach can be applied to other types of photography.
Wow. This has been the most challenging theme so far. Lost in the details, to me, could also mean being overwhelmed by the abstractness of the whole that the details don’t seem to be as important as the entire picture frame. This could be quite the opposite of the theme (Beyond, if you remember) we had a few weeks ago. Here in this theme, we highlighted a particular object in the foreground fitted against a background with some depth that would entice us to look BEYOND.
Now, here is my “lost in the details” entry:
Maria Christina Falls is located in the western part of the City of Iligan, Lanao Norte, Mindanao, Philippines. The water falls from a height of about 120 meters and one would surely be lost in the details of the tremendous water mists created below as water splashes out in all directions. What an amazing sight to behold.
Several other smaller waterfalls are found along the stretch of the Agus River which originates from Lake Lanao (largest inland lake in the Philippines) and exits into the Illana Bay. The Agus River Hydro-Electirc System provides 90 percent of the power requirement of Mindanao island (third largest island in the Philippines).
Maria Christina Falls is one of the most beautiful tourist spots in Mindanao.
