I too like the quiet mood and delicate light pictured here. Love the diagonal movement and placement of the luminous little plant. The gradation of the B&W tones was beautifully handled, allowing for an effective & dramatic dark background, with enough details to perceive depth and interesting textures...
A lovely and very aesthetically pleasing testament to survival against all odds. The frail new growth clinging to life on the rock whist it enjoys a brief warming from the sun. Excellent proportional values and composition!
Fred, Mario, Luis, Pnina,
big thanks for your comments!
Caught my eye too!It shows that life in nature are so strong and vital! Beautiful diagonal that enhances the tension and the light and details of the rocks are enhancing the delicate green plant. Very well seen and observed, Wolfgang
Very nicely composed work with impressive lighting, Wolfgang!
Well done !! Regards, Mário
Beautiful. I like the textures and the contrasting lights and shawdows it produces. I quite like your photo.
I especially like the diagonal movement of the earth. It takes a still photo, a quiet scene and moment, and gives it energy. The lighting is also effective at helping to bring out a lot of texture. There's a nice sense of depth so one can get lost in this photo and just appreciate its simplicity.
A beautifully composed picture with a soft and slightly melancholy mood. As always, you prove yourself a master in the use of lighting which here emphasizes the vertical of the plant against the sloping diagonal of the rock. Very nice indeed, Wolfgang.
Growing on Rock A steep rock wall in a gorge - a place you'd hardly expect something to grow. The contrast between dark and rough texture of rock and delicate leaves of the plants caught my eye.
