We've celebratedthe male performancesandthe heroes and villainsof the year's first half.But before we get to the actresses --what?foreplay makes it hotter-- let's revel in the beauty of Cinematography & Production Design.These five choices in each category are what yours truly,Nathaniel,would nominate if the year ended on June 30th.Please share your list of praiseworthy achievements in the comments.Movies are communal and loving them should be,too.

HALFWAY MARK BEAUTY BREAK
CINEMATOGRAPHY & PRODUCTION DESIGN
(January to June theatrical releases only.Disclaimer: I have not yet seen The Mermaid which I hear is an eyeful)

Best Cinematography
If I had a ballot right now (January to June releases only...)

A Bigger Splash,Yorick Le Saux
From gold dust sunshine to postcard istas,from the ambient light of off white seaside architecture to intimate dinners by candlelight,Le Saux is always caressing the already sensual actors with light.


Embrace of the Serpent,David Gallego
In glorious black and white but for hallucinogenic sequences,the sharp contrast photography does wonders to make this already foreign world look ever more forgotten and alien.And there's something about that inky water that makes the whole picture more suspenseful in its rowing languours.
