Tears: 1% water and 99% feelings

by Yvette Depaepe

n/t by Bobby Kostadinov

Crying is the welling of tears in the eyes in response to emotions including happiness, sadness or anger.

Photography may be a highly visual art, but like any other art form, it’s not all about the aesthetics—it’s about telling a story.  Capturing authentic emotions and feelings in an image is key to creating beautiful, truly compelling images that speak to your audience on a more personal level.

We all need to cry sometimes.
To me, an emotional tear is made of 1% water and 99% of feelings!

'Tears' is also the upcoming contest theme and we challenge you to show us your best expressing all kind of emotions.

Therefore this wonderful gallery of 1x tear shots, some real tears, some abstract visions on tears and some fantastic creations with tears.

Enjoy and be inspired!
