Sometimes the simplest things can catch your eye.
Wow! that's nice. thanx.
Classic! [in the very best sense of the term.]
Have to admit it has great lines nice job. Shows us old guys aint quite used up yet.
Thanks guys. I don't know, Mysteryscribe, I may be used up and just not realize it.
Hell somebody tells me that all the time. Fortunately it isn't anyone I would buy a used car from.
I would like to see it in 5w x 4h with a little more room to the left. - tall grey sky seems non-contributory.
Having the fence touch the edge seems to 'leak' the image off the left
That is one fine photo! Exactly what good B&W photography is all about IMO.
I agree. You would change your mind if you saw what was to the left of the fence, however. I tried cropping it just above the little clouds but it didn't work for me. With all the sky left in it gave me a feeling of lonliness. Without it the fence replaced the lonliness and the image lost its impact - at least for me. Take care.
At first I thought the same about the sky. And it if were an 8x10 I would still think that, but because it isn't a standard size it works for me on a different level. Not sure you will understand but thats my latest opinon
Traveller sent me a PM with his edited version of my image. He did a nice job fixing the corner of the fence that was cropped. He's better with photoshop than I am. He also cropped out much of the sky but I prefer it uncropped personally as mentioned above. There was sign attached to the corner of the fence that ruined the whole mood of the thing. I used photoshop to remove the part of the sign that intruded into the frame but I hadn't thought to fix the cropped corner like Traveller did. At any rate here's his version.
IMO, if you were willing to sacrifice for your Art (note capital A), you should have torn the sign down and taken the picture.
Subsequently you should have driven like hell.
