Isolation:  Technically, not emotionally.  The act of separating the foreground subject from its background for a greater impact.  Emotionally, the stems are OK because they have each other. Like two lovers enjoying a beautiful sunset…  🙂  This image was taken in Ohio at the Norwalk Reservoir on a little hillside near the water’s edge.  It was the darkest, most red sunset I think I’ve ever seen.  After taking a couple dozen sunset images, I realized it might make a better backdrop than subject.  So these confident and upright reeds made an excellent star for the photo.
