The truth is that the light is in photographing the most important.

Light, brings out the color, shape and texture of the picture, and never shows the same object in the same way.

Light is the single most important element in  this photography, This photograph reminds concerts in the concert hall or scene in the theater, drama and sharpness of light focused attention ., the reflection in the water gives a sense of space in a closed dark tunnel.
