Elemental Yin and Yang by matic Elemental Yin and Yang by matic
Taking the "water into flame" image a bit further, playing on the concept of yin and yang revolving about one another. Flame rising, water falling.

Hehe, at first glance it does look like two separate instances of fire and water. Once you zoom in, I can see that the fire is actually colourized water upside down. Simple, but with taste. I like it.
The only thing I can pick at is the white dot in the middle of the two, it just does not seem congruent to the image - neither here nor there.
Also, in the traditional ying yang, each "element" has a seed of its opposite. It would be interesting to see that at play here also.
Cheers

conceptually amazing, the use of fire and water, and yin and yang is very well depicted. the image is so basic, yet is perfectly executed. LESS IS DEFINATELY MORE =) (Smile)

Impressive, both visually and conceptually. And it is strange to see the Yin and Yang pattern straight, as opposed to the standard curved one. :) (Smile)

I really like the concept and the execution of it in this piece! It's very simple but still transporting the message everyone knows ;) (Wink) not very original but in this case less is more ...

I liked the other fire version, but this one is really great! Great idea on the water and fire yin and yang thing. Would love to have a larger version of this!
