This is the last of the holly leaf series.............after all how far can you push one leaf!!!
I've put three together in a "triptych", although I'm not sure if that is what it is, if it does not have lines separating each part.
In the second version I have duplicated the layer and made it transparent. I expect I could have uploaded that separately but I didn't want boredom to set in!!
Thanks for looking.
I will try extra hard not to hit the adult box tonight - they may be old, but that is the only adult thing about them!!

My first thought was that they are like three abstract china ducks flying along a wall - but much more interesting! I much prefer V1, it is lighter and more enigmatic.
BTW I have got round at last to photographing the reflection in my electric fan, will probably upload it on Thursday...

I like both of these shots much better than the single leaf shot of the previous two days, wonder what it would like 3 stretched from corner to corner diagonally could be very nice if you wanted to try it

Two super images Helen - I love them both - V1 has such delicacy and soft light but I love the tone contrasts in V1 as well. they would both be superb as fabric prints. I agree with Moira that they could look like abstract chinese ducks.

I very much like the look of this (V1 in particular) but I think it would be far more satisfying if the two outer leaves were moved in closer to the center one while leaving the canvas size the same. More concentrated action in the middle while leaving more room to breathe.
