The Genie in the Bottle by 

Old Greek urn with entrapped genie and lion, safely housed in the Historic Glass House in the Conservatory Gardens, Bendigo, Australia

Whatever you do, don’t polish the urn ;-)

Multiple reflections in the conservatory window: urn inside, statue outside, plants inside, podium outside, buildings outside, photographer outside, no one about, very nice day.
Single RAW capture: Pentax K-5; FL=85mm; A = f14; T = 1/20sec; ISO = 200; Ev= 0.0
Post processing in Lightroom 3.5: cropping, exposure, contrast, white balance, sharpening

To reveal art and conceal the artist,
is art’s aim.

  • Thanks Georgie, I love it when a not-so-typical Rhoufi gets a feature. Me trying for more lyrical photos ;-))
