Over the rail-tracks to Clowes Wood
Tracks in the snow
Like the elements but love the composition.
Not only is the composition good, the contrast between the cool white and warm tones on the metal is steller. Well done, Adrian. 🙂
Thanks very much Frank.
Excellent image, Adrian! There are shapes converging to a vanishing point of course, but what does it for me is that those shapes hold practically all of the picture’s colour, and in particular those wonderful rusty red-browns.
And the snow on the bridge is undisturbed.
And, if I look at it in a certain way, the snowy trees that we can see between the ends of the bridge’s metal uprights take the form of a swirling, tornado-like funnel, ie the whole mass of those snowy trees becomes abstract and alive – and quite something else from snowy trees.
Good stuff – and all from something extremely simple >>> way to go!!! Adrian
Adrian, thanks very much. The colour of the metal / rust / graffiti is what drew me to this shot. I tried a couple of different compostions but favoured the off-centre. The snow looks undisturbed but it wasn’t, I think the over-exposure to get the colours of the metal mean the snow looks undisturbed – an unintended consequence – that works well.
The simplest subjects and compositions often make the best images in my experience.
Definitely! Always remember – “less is more, simple is beautiful” >>> and also KISS = “Keep it simple, stupid!”.
As witness that candlestick photo I posted recently. I don’t think its a particularly good photo – more a test of the D800 on full resolution – but its pared right down to bare essentials. I was looking at the shine shining through a pair of spectacles on a table today and I think that might be a good mono study too. A
