    Nice. I like the play of light on the 'leaves' and arms.

    Is there an artistic reason for not getting all the 'leaves' in the frame?
    Made me think - coitus interruptus.

    Thanks.

    Artistic reason? Yes and no. This was at a local farm fair with different vendor tents around. Below the crop was the tree line behind the sculpture, as well as a couple tents in the distant background. Very bright sunny day and I recall struggling to find a composition that presented the best angle of the sculpture, reduced the tree line at the bottom, and kept the sun out of the top of the frame. I don't recall the Pen-F EVF helping the process any either. ;) Love the camera, but I would have preferred one of my Nikons in this situation. Anyway, I tried to make it work and am not displeased overall, but your point is a valid one.

    Thanks again.

    Oh - and the sucker was both spinning and rotating in the wind as well. Yay ...

    I like it. I see a lot of abstract potential by cropping out the post and axel.
