Lens Artist’s Challenge #248: Mood

Sofia says “So, for this week, I challenge you and myself to think of mood, how to convey and create an emotional reaction to your shot.”

So without further ado, as I’m late with this, here are a few mood-evoking images:

Sorrow..abandoned places . Spinalonga, shown here was the first place where I felt a palpable sense of those who were there before me, and a very heavy sadness.


Musing in the cemetery

  1. Shadow play always works to evoke mood

  2. Many different moods nicely conveyed, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Your photos provoke wonderful moods. 😀 😀

  4. A great showcase to illustrate moods we’re all familiar with.

  5. Love the first one, Sue, and the tulips certainly made me happy 🤗💟

  6. Love the ruins and poppies as a comparison 😉

  7. Excellent choices, Sue. I love the first one and also the one with the children, great shots, both of them

  8. The first one definitely says desolation to me, the same feeling as I get in abandoned highland villages. And the man leaning on the tomb seems so sad. Definitely a good idea to end with the happy ones!

  9. I have an old brass pot which has been mended several times and every time I handle it I feel the history in it. I’ve not thought that way about abandoned places or cemeteries for some reason, but the way you explained it I now see that the appeal is both the peacefulness and the sadness. Lovely post.
