    You have an interesting style....

    In my black and whites, I like to have definitive blacks and whites, so TRUE blacks and TRUE whites, both in the same photo, (not that I can even do it every time!) this is why the first picture doesn't do anything for me. I also don't know what the subject is.

    In the second photo, there are definitely true blacks! I would have liked a longer DOF, but I love how the first part of the vine/stem is out of focus. I would also experiment with the vine not being dead center...

    The texture is beautiful in the last photo! Unfortunately, you've chosen to only have a small fraction of the photo in focus. My eyes itch to see more of the railing/whatever-it-is.

    There's lots of potential here, though!

    thanks!

    i should apologize, i have a bizarre fetish for obscuring my subjects! :confused:

    what i'm exploring right now is taking pictures that are somewhat unidentifiable, so that the person viewing the picture can imagine it to be what they want. i guess i kind of think of it like abstract paintings. that's why i really like either completely out of focus shots or shots where a minimal portion of the subject is in focus.

    i'd let you in on what the subjects are here, but i'm just not gonna yet :wink:
