    Another version, this time the light caught between severe storm and sunset

    Love the light of #2 Lili. I'm seeing a nice close-up in B+W. Hmmmmm.....

    LOL thanks Mark :)
     
  5. Both are nice although I would crop it down a bit.

    thanks Dave, how would you crop? Which one?
    BTW the second was shot at ISO 640, I am impressed by the little Fuji's

    My favorite is your first. The simplicity of the line and color is beautiful. Very Eastern in style to my eyes.

    only just caught up with these.
    i agree with BB the colour and stillness of #1 is wonderful.
    if #2 were cropped to similar proportion as #1 they would be beautiful complements.

    then i can see them printed large under acrylic on adjacent walls in a big white room

    for me a bit less tight - about the same amount of fence-top and greenery as in #1 is what I envisaged.

    But that is my "visual aesthetic" at work, and it won't be the same as yours. You must (I insist!) be true to yourself!

    I like the cropped image better than the original. The rule of thirds is well balanced in terms of geometric shape and color.

    Home with pneumonia, bored, chills, fever. Called in sick for the week. Time to crawl under the covers and watch "Justice League"...

    The first has the impact of discovery for me, thenthe next 2 I refined my vision.
    For better or worse ;)
