One of my more odd images, taken some while ago and has been sitting on my hard drive, while i considered whether to upload it or not Smile Well I am biting the bullet and here it is for your consideration, not everyone's cuppa tea I am sure but I like the simplicity of it Smile

Apologies for only clicking still, live is still somewhat hectic !

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

"An abstract or a minimalistic image?" For me it is both, one which has been cleverly observed captured and framed. The crossing colours reminiscent of the London Underground.

I echo Fred's comment!
I love this sort of photo but I agree, not everyone's cuppa tea - my 'better half' doesn't always agree with my choice of picture!!

I like the contrast in the colours Hugh, and can see where you are coming from with this, I'm sure I would take a shot like that, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Excellent textures and vibrant colour, Hugh. I would maybe have cropped in a bit on the right and bottom, the blue lace/rope loses a bit of focus in that bottom corner. The crop would move the top of the red more off centre as well.

Ooooh yes!
There's a lovely set of contrasts here. Hot and cold colour. Plus the blue cord is so disciplined and single-minded, while the red cord is lazy and relaxed, meandering.
Very clever.

Good textures and colours,i agree with Dave, a crop on the right and botton would improve the image.

Not one of your prettier images but very good as far as texture goes with nice negative shapes too.
