"Ecosystem II - The Mirror".
Inspired by the wildfires we have every summer in Arizona. The smoke from the fires turns the sunrise into a blood red sky.
Sometimes when photographing paintings with large amounts of red the end result does not quite match the original painting. The same thing happens with paintings that have Pthalo green mixed with a touch of Pthalo blue, such as 'Sailing into the Night' and 'The Bridge'. I have photographed this piece with both my 4"x5" camera (with film balanced to the lighting) and a high res digital camera. It surprised me that the digital photo came out better. This is surrealism.
