! A very deserved win. I loved the majestic, yet menacing impression that was conveyed by the combination of the power lines and the moody sky. It immediately grabbed my attention.
My ups ‘n downs:
’s Straight Wood. Composition wise, spot on in my opinion, rule of thirds etc.
I think however, you could have brought out more of the character of the wood, the detail and the warm colour, with a bit of editing. Slightly more contrast and saturation might have done it, I think.
Though wood is a beautiful product and photographs well, I think it has a limited attraction for most people, and unless you manage to create something really different and eye catching, most eyes will just glance over it, and go to the next photograph. In a competition like this anyway.
s Linear Powerlines. Well, it got my vote for the reasons mentioned above.
Up to you again Jeff, to find something interesting!
’s Lining up, I expected to get more votes, simply because it’s an original take on the subject and such a sweet shot.
And my own concoction ... What to say about that ...
To be honest, I had hoped to get at least a few votes, but it was not to be.
Is it not linear enough? Too ‘out of the ordinary’? Too artificial? Not enough colour? Or did everyone simply prefer one of the other pictures?
I guess I’ll never know, but, you win some, you lose some, as they say.
Old timers on the forum know I’m just a ‘housewife with a camera,’ and my opinions are purely my own, and based on nothing more than ‘how I see it,’ and not on technical knowledge of which I have very little.
