This photograph has a lot of meaning to it. Everything is blurred out but the image in the mirror. The woman has he eyes cast down, she looks thoughtful maybe a little upset. I really like how she captures the soul of these woman. This is one of the photographs from Dana Popa from her "Not Natasha" series. http://www.danapopa.com/gallery.php?ProjectID=218=1#

Essence of elephants Greg du Toit (Southafrica) 2013: Wildlife Photographer of the Year - Grand title winner
Showcasing 100 awe-inspiring photographs from the world of nature photography, the acclaimed Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition celebrates the rich array of life on our planet, reflecting its beauty and also highlighting its fragility. The exhibition at the Natural History Museum runs 18 October 2013 until 23 March 2014 Winner – Animal Portraits Essence of elephants Greg du Toit (South Africa) Ever since he first picked up a camera, Greg has photographed African elephants. ‘For many years,’ he says, ‘I’ve wanted to create an image that captures their special energy and the state of consciousness that I sense when I’m with them. This image comes closest to doing that.’ The shot was taken at a waterhole in Botswana’s Northern Tuli Game Reserve, from a hide (a sunken freight container) that provided a ground-level view. Greg chose to use a slow shutter speed to create the atmosphere he was after and try ‘to depict these gentle giants in an almost ghostly way.’ He used a wide-angle lens tilted up to emphasise the size of whatever elephant entered the foreground, and chose a narrow aperture to create a large depth of field so that any elephants in the background would also be in focus. Greg had hoped the elephants would turn up before dawn, but they arrived after the sun was up. To emphasise the ‘mysterious nature’ of these ‘enigmatic subjects’, he attached a polarising filter and set his white balance to a cool temperature. The element of luck that added the final touch to his preparation was the baby elephant, which raced past the hide, so close that Greg could have touched her. The slow shutter speed conveyed the motion, and a short burst of flash at the end of the exposure froze a fleeting bit of detail.
