National Geography Photography – Man mural, Turkey

Surfing on the web to find the most beautiful pictures to show you, I came across this one. Although I do not find it especially intruiging when it comes to light, one of the most important aspects of a great picture, yet I do think it is a very powerful image. All the individual handprints together form two angel wings, a symbole of peace and holiness. Combine this with the background- the wall with the hole in it, the electrical wires and sattelite dish- and it makes a beautiful strong picture. The simplicity is stunning. This picture has been taken in just a few seconds- no longtime preparation, no waiting-for-the-shadows-to-fall. Just look at the man in front, he did not strike a pose, it is all natural. In my opinion, that’s what makes this image so powerful.
