Thanks for the kind words, Michael. I do have other versions of this shot. Black and white as well as some other sepia type effects. You may be correct, if I remove just a tad of the yellow, it may be a good idea. I think often, various monitors play games with the images. I may have adjusted and posted the image during daylight, or nightime, etc., that does seem to make a difference. Nonetheless, thanks for taking the time to comment.

Composition Hi Paul,

After the highly respected comments about composition I am proud to have an own opinion which I hope is just as strong. I have the feeling that the distribution of space is slightly offset. With that I mean that I think that the left and top have to much ground showing. So personally I would prefer a tighter cropping. Also, the subject ends its 'flow' in the top left corner. I think a tighter cropping would also solve this. This is what I mean (see attachment).

These of mine are just personal opinions and last but not least.... I think this shot is already an execellent abstract! The yellow I like. Keep up the good work, thanks for showing, yadayadaya....... BUT ... I'm surely gonna check out the rest of your portfolio.

6/6 Great composition - it's wonderful what you can see when you look around and this is nicely presented. Perhaps a little less yellow in the tint would make this a little moodier - just an option.

Doeke: Sometimes, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I have to openly confess that I love your cropping of the image. I would strongly agree that it has much more power than the one I've posted. I tend to stubbornly stay with the image I shot in the viewfinder and take pride in never cropping later, but when you're right, you're right. And with that in mind, I ask for your permission to recrop and use your version. Thanks so much for taking the time to not only comment, but provide the sample. Keep in touch...
