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...

Hi Wolfgang

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!

Best Regards

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

Ruud Albers

Very nicely composed work with impressive lighting, Wolfgang!


Mario Azevedo
Well done !! Regards, Mário

Luis San Martin

Beautiful. I like the textures and the contrasting lights and shawdows it produces. I quite like your photo.

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.
