Not exactly what was happening at the time, but what I saw in the first split instant that I saw it. It took a while to bring it into being. Split instants are like that.

  1. That bright area sure pulls my attention to the right.
    If a cheerleader can do a split and a physicist can split an atom, I guess you can split an instant. Two questions arise. Can you instantly split an instant? If so, is the result a splinstant?

  2. As with the previous, I like the subtle warmth in the sky. The small brightness at the left is a balance, albeit a small one, for the larger at the right. It’s an excellent split second’s creation. Most of my instant responses end up being less than expected.

    • Thanks again! I’ve been really challenging myself with subtle gradations and color balance in the past month or so. That small split of light after the left is something that I only uncovered in the past couple of days. The original creation of this had it hidden but in experimenting with the sky and sea relationship I rediscovered it and exposed it. I think to the image’s benefit.
