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.
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.
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.
