Thank you guys.

It's neither HDR nor Orton. However, there are dodge n burn to bring out the rock texture and depth.

On the surface, I was ref to esteem = high regard to/of. Meaning that I give high regards to nature as peace and beautiful place.

On the deeper layer, I was referring to self-esteem.

Tho there are chaotic everywhere the rock, the water just need to be as intended and able to remain composed and poised. Like when we too concern and worry, we are part of the chaos. However when we look within and be centered and still within self, internal power will give sense of purpose and direction.

"To be or not to be......" Shakespeare.

"There is nothing to do, there is nowhere to go. Just go within and be" Buddha

Therefore I was expressing enlightenment is not a state but a process.

If I were to go deeper, calm cannot exist in the absence flow. Like black cannot exist without white. In our photography language, sharpness doesn't exist when there is no blur/bokeh!

Should I go more? Nah.. should be enuff to explain my intentions and what's going on inside my head with this photo.

Hahhaah wahh.,....the maksud tersirat is super duper deep.

I saw "Life" in this shot.

That after all the obstacles we go through in life, sometimes we do get to the big open water of calm, but yet, there are still obstacles which do get in our way, once in a while...
