At the Edge of Nowhere by BettinaSchwarz


Small (23.2" x 15.5")

Available to buy on…

this lonely tree on the hill has captivated and fascinated me for some time now …

on this particular day I happened to be at the right place at the right time (with camera! ) … I loved the silhouettes and couldn’t resist a few shots :)

I’m delighted and honoured at the feature in German Artists in May 2009 … thank you kindly!! :)

    This captures my imagination….the people add so much to the shot.

  • Von – that is one hellova compliment!
    Delighted your imagination took this one for a little test-spin
    The people added a rather unexpected dash of spice … :) Wish I could take credit for having made them be there … but alas – they appeared – not by divination either … as far as I’m aware … lol

    I love how the people look so small in comparison to the vastness of the sky. This is wonderful!

  • crazy isn’t it? I couldn’t have orchestrated them / their placement / their movements better even if I’d have tried … they were just there … waiting for me to take the shots … lol :)

    G’day Bettina!

    This very fine B&W landscape has been extremely well done from concept to presentation and holds two elements I really like but seldom use in photography – minimalism and negative space.
    That all the negative space here is filled with the texture and tones of cloud, ensures there is not a bit of wasted space in the whole image.
    The wide space between the two main elements here works so well and having the people all holding a different pose, (or caught in motion), adds so much interest and entertainment.
    Keeping the solid black base as narrow as you have successfuly locks the image down and is not overwhelming.
    The exposure, contrast and tonal range are very good and the silhouette is very clear and crisp.


  • WOW Dennis !!! Thank you!!! Thank you so much for the detailed and constructive feedback! That is so kind and so generous of you and I appreciate it more than you can know!!!
